My boyfriend of a month has a lot of anger issues and he's actually killed people in his past. He's grown up in the hood and ghettos of detroit and st louis both top the murder capitals list. I really like him and I've found out a lot about him thru stories and things he's been thru. He's been thru foster care cuz his mom couldn't take care of him and his siblings and his dad just denied them not wanting them. So one of my ex's also had anger issues and went nuts on me telling me he'd kill my family wanted me to give him money basically to save everyones life n such. That was my most recent ex and I really haven't dated since him which was about 16 months prior to my current boyfriend. My friends are really scared for me and think I should let him go, as I know me and him can always be friends if it comes down to it. A huge issue I have is his family loves me his niece's and nephew's are closer to me then I am to my own family. I really really like this guy and see maybe a future for us or us moving forward maybe within the next few months. Some more background info... his brother was shot 4 years ago and he's had a lot of issues because of that but really do you blame him?Do you deny somebody love because what they've done and been thru in their past, and just pass them by like the wind? So my question basically is do I go with my heart/happiness because I'm happy with him... Or do I listen to my friends that think he's going to end up hurting me and just remain friends with him?
