Stories about dating violence

My mom didn't know how to love me, I never fit in anywhere, was always in trouble. I didn't think my mum would let me go, but she saw how excited I was, I promised not to drink, and I'd be home on the last bus. I met my friend at her house, she suggested I try on a top of hers to make me look older, it was quite a sexy top, she did my make-up and I looked much older.

I was bullied in school, and sexually abused by the boys. Then we popped into this guys house that she was seeing, there I was in the middle of a room with about ten men all much older by at least ten yrs.

Then he would want to know if I still loved him and make me perform sexual acts on him. I went home to them once, and they sent me straight back to him, even bought me the ticket. I loved it there, being safe, miles away from him he'd never find me. The girls next door were always inviting me out but I was too afraid to go. I know he drugged me because I couldn't remember anything, and felt so cloudy. I wanted to have an abortion but couldn't go through with it. I'm in counselling but it's the one thing I don't seem to be able to recover from. But if I had made the right choices I wouldn't have suffered, be still suffering. So please please take heed if you are with a violent person male or female.

He had a tiny bedsit, he was a drug dealer, I thought he was popular, and that everyone loved him.

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.

He told me to get into bed, and he started telling me how useless I was. Took my wages off me, wouldn't let me wear nice clothes, or makeup, or even do my hair nice.

The 2015 National Youth Risk Behavior Survey [2.77MB,180Pages, 508] found that nearly 12% of high school females reported physical violence and nearly 16% reported sexual violence from a dating partner in the 12 months* before they were surveyed. As teens develop emotionally, they are heavily influenced by experiences in their relationships.

For high school males, more than 7% reported physical violence and about 5% reported sexual violence from a dating partner. Healthy relationship behaviors can have a positive effect on a teen’s emotional development.
