The public today has more access to information than any previous generation, and they have the opportunity to learn more than ever before. Part of the available information is about relationships, and many have taken the opportunity to learn about the world of dating and those who inhabit it. They have delved deeply into different personality types and relationships, but many of them are unprepared for the reality of life.
While it is always good to be informed, information alone cannot always help a person avoid a bad relationship. Experience is often a better teacher, and many have found this out after they escape. Knowing a fact is not the same as experiencing it first hand, and this is where lessons really sink into a person's mind. What people fail to understand is that people who are abusive or controlling in relationships have the same access to information, and they tend to use it to hide the red flags that signal their bad behavior.
