I have two friends that I work with. One is a girl the other a guy. The girl I work with has a boyfriend, and he treats her TERRIBLE! He has even hit and pushed her. They broke up for a while and she started to like the guy that we work with. He is the exact opposite from her b/f. He is sweet, kind,and is crazy about her. He would do anything for her. her b/f i think might end up doing something crazy, maybe hurt her even. they got back together. He (the b/f) cused me out on the internet and then on the phone the other night. he calls her a bitch and a slut. It is sooo hard to see her with him when we all know that the guy we work with would treat her wonderful. I don't know how to help. I need some advice quick! thanks

First off you need to get her to admit that what her b/f is doing to her is not only unhealthy and dangerous for her, but to her family and friends also. As soon as she has done that, You need to tell her to tell a parent or a police officer about him. That is Spousal Abuse and he can be put away for that, and your friend can have a chance to move on. She is scared, she doesn't know how to handle the situation, she needs support from friends, family and others around her. This is a serious thing, and it needs some serious attention. Its not a phase this guy will go through, this is a problem, one he needs to deal with and suffer the consequences for. My thoughts are with her, and you, good luck.
