How Do I Know if He is Really an Abuser?
My mother said the way my boyfriend speaks to me is abusive. She said to get out. She said she will even help me.
But I love him and he only is like that sometimes. The other times he is very sweet, he always apologizes for his anger and then he buys me lots of gifts and takes me on fun trips.
Everyone loves him, he is charismatic and kind to everyone. All my friends wish he was their boyfriend/husband.
My mother told me that he is just like my dad. My dad is a horrible man. Very violent and angry. He beat my mother all the time. Never lay a hand on me, but I heard it from my bedroom closet.
When my boyfriend is angry, my mothers words echo in my head (and for many days after that). But as days pass everything gets better and we have a nice relationship. He is very good to me and we have fun together.
Kelly, am I stupid to stay with him? Will he be just like my dad? Is he an abuser?
What do I do?
