Hi Guys and Gals, I am new here as you might have noticed but I just need some advice honestly with my boyfriend for like six months. He has always been pretty hesitant to open up to me and let me get close even with how much time we have been together, ya know? Anyways I finally got him to open up to me last night and I won't lie I was pretty shocked. He expressed that he is so closed off and just nervous because his ex and was pretty abusive to him. He showed me photos of his body just covered in bruises and cuts and even some pretty bad slashes that he had to get stitched up. He said he finally opened up because he got word that his ex is being let out of jail and just wanted to warn me that she might try some things ext. I honestly haven't ever had to deal with this so all of this was pretty shocking and I won't lie I probably reacted really badly and just got upset because he waited to long to open up and tell me all of this and knowing he has such a dangerous ex. And now he isn't answering my texts or phone calls and just closed himself off to me. I want to try and make this right I just haven't ever had to deal with this, with a guy being the abused one I guess I was just pretty ignorant to it in all honesty. Has anyone dealt with this? I just need some advice and how to deal with this and how I guess to move forward with him. Because I do love him and I want this relationship to work.
