Hi, im a 17yr old guy....ive met a girl that and i think she is the most amazing thing on this planet, she is pretty, she is funny....she is anything any guy could want. I found out her boyfriend ...
I'll go out on a limb and bet she was abused as a child at home or by someone as a kid ... so she thinks it is normal or acceptable. She is ill-informed (to put it mildly) and foolish but she does not see that or is letting it slide.
She needs education about abuse and how it is illegal and not to be tolerated. So the question is how to educate her; it would be best coming from someone other than you (as she might rebel if it comes from you, you are NOT an objective party, since you are interested in her, and she will see that).
Does she have a girlfriend, or how about her mother ... that you could talk to and give reading material to about abuse that could give it to her and tell her she needs to get out of an abusive relationship or call the police or go get counseling to see how wrong it is and HOW 1. it does a lot of harm to her self esteem and 2. it ALWAYS gets worse when abusers are allowed to go on and on.
Out of evry answer, your is most logical...From the bottom of my heart, thanks man!
JT, you are very welcome and thanks for being so courteous to come back and let me know it helped. If you want more feedback here, from me and others, please come back again and we'll try to give you any advice or support we can.
You're a good man if you can help this lady get out of a physically abusive relationship ... as some women stay in them for years taking horrible abuse.
I wish you, and her, the best.
