Sadly Becky soon found out the reality of teen abuse.
He made me so happy that I would have dropped everything for him.
Stupid, I know but love can make people do strange things.
My unhealthy Relationship…I started dating a guy freshman year that I fell head over heels for.
He took my virginity that year and I later found out he was cheating on me.
Through all the years though he became a heroin addict. I never did them but he became more and more disrespectful and hurtful. In the end the outcome was a horrible heartbreak, a waste of three years and I later found out he cheated on me with over nine girls.
He lied, was manipulative, very controlling and yet very sensitive, at least only for his own feelings.
There are stories from women with disabilities and from young people under 25.
As an innocent 13 year old, Becky never imagined she would become involved in teen domestic violence - that, surely, only affected older, married women?
At first I had prank phone calls, that escalated to him coming to my house with slit wrists and saying he had cancer, that then went to him beating up a new boyfriend which ended the new relationship.
From there I have had him scratching my siste'rs car, breaking into my garden, hiding in my street and giving my mom and myself verbal abuse on numerous occasions as well as the constant phone calls.
He’s changed my whole point of view, making me realize I didn’t deserve a single thing that asshole did to me.
