Relationship Violence Story From Haley

(Location Undisclosed)

This is the first time I have ever really talked about it but it still leaves fresh images in my mind. He was perfect, sweet, nice, handsome. He was everything I'd ever wanted. He was my childhood best friend until we just ended up together. things were really good at first he was sweet, and kind. He made me feel on cloud 9, like I wasn't really there, and the feeling was addicting. One day we were driving around in his car until we parked somewhere and he told me he loved me, It felt great but I wasn't sure I felt the same so I didn't say it back. This is when he punched me in the arm, hard enough that I was shocked and started tearing up and told him I wanted to go home. He didn't say anything just drove me home and said sorry. I got out and went to my room and started crying he then called and said sorry many times so I shrugged it off. From there on out things got worse and worse, in front of people he would be so sweet. but when we were alone he would always get angry and hit my legs or my arms, just so that if he did leave a bruise no one would see it. Sometimes he would grab me so hard that I would have his finger prints bruised on my arms. He wouldn't let me talk to any other guy and if I did he would yelled at me and punch me. I never really told anyone for the fear that he would hurt me more if I told. Then one night we were going on a date. He pulled up at my house and I got in the car and he asked me if I wanted to skip dinner and just have sex. I was a virgin at this time and did not want to loose it now, in a car. After I said no he started yelling and hitting me so hard. He hit me so hard that I fell out of his car onto the curb and he drove off. I laid there for what felt like forever until my mother came out and found me. I later broke up with him. He still talks to me and tells me he's sorry, but I don't believe him. I try so hard to stay away from him after everything he has done. I just had to tell my story. Thanks.
