Ok my boyfriend Micheal and I get along really good..We are able to talk to each other and I know that I'm in love with him,but the only thing that bother's me about his family is his dad..Mikes twin brother is pretty cool and Mikes little bro Chris is so adorable and cool for a 7 year old..and Mikes mom is awesome,and his dad is nice really his dad is but his dad is is uuummm a jerk to Mike.. Mikes dad makes him come in from school work for like ever out in their barn and his dad sit's around and bosses him around..Mike told me about a 2 months ago that his dad likes have sumthing to hit..I'm not sure if that ment his dad abused him or what..I didn't ask because i didn't know how to react..Mike is a really nice,sweet loving guy,but his dad is taking a toll on him..Mike is depressed alot and sits around and acks like he is about to cry..It makes me feel helpless..Mike is my bestest best friend in the world and seeing him in this type of positon..It makes me want to cary everytime i see him like that.. My question is:How can I talk to him about it? I don't want to sound nosey.. How can I ask if his dad is abusive? I hate seeing him like this.. Thanks bunches!!!

First of all, Please, please, avoid using run-on sentences, it makes posts so hard to understand. So, with that out of the way.....Your bf. The only way you can find out what the dilly is with your guy, is if you talk to him. I don't know how to tell you how to do this, you'll just have to kinda ask him to talk with you about what's bothering him, and if he does, great, and if he doesn't, well then maybe he will someday. You can't force him though. If he doesn't want to talk, he doesn't want to talk. Just try and be a friend through this I guess. I guess I would just talk it out with my girlfriend, if something like this were happening. so, I put in my opinion, take it or leave it, it's here if you need it. hope I helped. -Zach
