You're in love with the idea of what you believe is possible in this relationship. You've mistakenly taken what is actually the "honeymoon period" and decided that what he is like during this period is actually who he is. This isn't who he is, Byron. What's he's displaying during that time is a phase, a phase that will always dissipate, a phase that will always end with you being blamed for what he did. And what's even worse is that you'll believe the lie. You'll believe that somehow you were responsible for what HE did to YOU. Again, that's nothing but a lie. He's to blame because he chooses to abuse you. I don't believe you like to be abused. I DO believe you lack self-esteem and self-confidence to see that you really are worthy of so much better. I gave you a number to contact the last time; call them. The abuse WILL continue, and it WILL intensify, and it WILL escalate. There WILL be another cycle of abuse following EVERY honeymoon period; that's the nature of the cycle of violence. The only way to stop it is to first, recognize that you're worthy of dignity and respect. Second, to reach out to the people who can help you. Third, take advantage of the resources available to you and break up with this abuser. If you don't, he WILL eventually take your life, a life that is worthy of being here, a life that is too precious to lose. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The sooner, the better...Darlene is right!

Byron, I agree with Darlene! Please break up with that sick, sadistic monster of a boyfriend and look into reporting him to the police because, remember, abusers don't stop until they're made to stop.
