Stories of dating violence
He was very good looking and many girls wanted to be his girlfriend.He never had many friends who were guys and he wasn't into sports.He dragged me into his bedroom, ripped off my clothes and tried to strangle me. At four in the morning he gave me some of his clothes and told me I could go home if I promised not to split up with him. I left and headed to the police station, I was running and only about a hundred feet away when he caught up with me.When he got off he threatened to rape me if I screamed. He dragged me back to my place, and kept me prisoner for another day. He smacked me across the face with the back of his hand because I wasn't enjoying it. He rarely left my side, I worked as a waitress and he sat in the cafe nearly all day, picked me up from work.
I was afraid I would get pregnant and told him that I wanted to wait.
At first, he was really nice to me and always invited me over to his house after school.
He really liked cars and had a place set up in his Dad's garage where he worked on a broken down car that his Uncle had given him.
He had a tiny bedsit, he was a drug dealer, I thought he was popular, and that everyone loved him.
He was so charming and some other girls were into him, I thought I was the luckiest girl in the world because he chose me. I stored my stuff in my job and slept on friends sofa's until a week later I got a bedsit. I called to his mothers where he sometimes stayed to get a break from me, she was away and he was alone.
