I’m a 25-year-old guy in a new relationship. I once dated a woman who had anger issues. She used to tell me I was useless in bed and had a small “weapon”. I fear being intimate with my new girlfriend as I feel I may disappoint her. I want to build a life with her but how do I get over my fear?

You won the battle when you walked away from a toxic relationship! Although breaking free can be liberating, you need to give yourself time to recover.
This helps you avoid transferring baggage into a new relationship. It’s vital to note that the way you were treated doesn’t reflect who you are. Talk to your new partner about your concerns and believe in yourself.
