I was dating a man for 4 months and he become physically abusive with me after an argument two months into the relationship,i.e. he put me into a choke hold, restrained me on the sofa, bruising my arms and right hand, in addition to pushing me and head butting me causing a concussion. He claimed that he had never abused any woman before and he said he did this to me, because I was so angry and was cursing. I was mad, as he had been verbally abusing the night before and treating me poorly in general, but I never physically attacked him during my angry episode. Since then I decided to not deal with him, as the relationship is unhealthy and his past relationships were bad in addition to being a long time, serious alcoholic. He also broke one of my apt windows in a drunken rage. He recently tried to talk me into going back with him and said he was going to get help for his addiction, but I am very wary. I have been in one abusive relationship before and know the signs and am wondering if this guy is yet another abuser. It is hard to accept. What do you think?
Let’s see..choke hold, bruises, head butting, concussion, serious alcoholic, broken window in a drunken rage, history of bad relationships and your asking if he sounds like an abuser because it is hard to “accept“?
