Short dating violence stories
I mean not many guys like a girl your size and a flat chest”; “I don’t like when you wear those shorts, they are way too short.I just love you so much I hate it when other men look at you”. It made me feel like he loved me so much that it hurt him when other men paid attention to me.I felt more helpless each time I attempted to break up.The threats against my family terrified me and I would never forgive myself if something happened to any of them.I just had to keep my head down and wait for it to be over.I could not talk to any males without his permission, and if I was not with him I had to wait for his call.I grew up in a household where violence was never an issue.
Through all of this my home was my safe haven where I could take a breath and I always felt loved.
When I would try he would threaten the safety of me and my family, or threaten to commit suicide.
He would call me saying he was standing on the edge of a cliff ready to jump if I did not get back together with him.
I remember on one occasion I wore something to his house he did not approve of.
His friends were over which was even more disrespectful and insulting to him so he locked me in his room for 4 hours to teach me a lesson. One day at high school we received individual research projects for my Community and Family Studies class. As I was reading through all of the photocopied research I had collected, I started to cry uncontrollably.
