Two years ago picked the wrong guy

two years ago there were to guys interested in me, one was sweet, nice, kinda attractive. The other was very attractive seemed nice and funny but he also seemed to be a player. Well I chose the sweet one or so I thought. 3 months later he hit me for the first time, and fought with me constantly. 3 months after that I ended up in the hospital getting stitches from him pushing me through a window. 1 year after that I still stayed until I moved away. Just thinking back I chose poorly and regret not choosing the other guy. I recently started a new job and the guy I thought about daily is also working there and we hit it off and I’m currently getting ready for our first date ❤️ I am so nervous and excited ☺️☺️☺️❤️❤️❤️❤️
