We'll be hearing from this young man again, I'm sure.

Probably got the cutting idea from Harry Potter.  "Eating sticks" may be a typo or the reporting cop's bad hearing.

Why is the headline about him telling her to cut an apology into her arm? He jabbed her with a corkscrew, tried to forcefully cut her hair with a knife, tried to force sticks into her mouth, and stole her glasses. Compared to all of this, asking her to cut herself is polite. He should feel lucky when he handed the knife over she didn't threaten him or worse.

If she really loved him she would have done it.

If she REALLY loved him she would have brought a sammich.

And yea, that's a future "he was a quiet boy" if I've ever heard of one.

Sadly, I've known a few women who, at least in their teen years, might have actually believed that.

Uh... except I did not. I said of all the things he did, asking her to cut herself is comparatively polite, and I followed this up by noting he was fortunate she did not stab him when he handed over the knife... the thing which happened immediately preceding him asking her to cut the apology into her arm. What he did (I should say "supposedly") was worse than this, hence my question about being the headline when she did not cut herself nor did he cut her.

No, it isn't.  If he can convince her to cut herself, it shows that he has achieved complete control over her, and that physical abuse is not necessary to make her do what he wants.  It's more or less equivalent to "There are five lights."

I would have gladly accepted a bj as an apology

Asking her to is comparatively polite to forcing her to in some other capacity or doing this himself, which I would expect the presumed psychopath to do. I mean, he was forceful otherwise and assaulted her.

Well, except that Picard was forcibly confined and this girl was always free to leave the company of this loser. Not that I don't have sympathy for her, but any control her boyfriend had over her was given to him by her.

Definitely a candidate for the spankological protocol...

Except instead of a spanking from a psychiatrist for 8 months It should be a marine sitting on the teens chest holding his wrists doing the 'stop hitting yourself' thing.

 Its a Southern thing...Do you love me??   Do you really love me???   Eat this stick...

She may not have actually done anything.  People often tend to ignore the faults of their romantic partners, so she may have let him convince her (or she may have convinced herself) that anything that's wrong in the relationship is her fault.

Which leads to a larger point that people quickly seem to forget...

Vangor: Asking her to is comparatively polite to forcing her to in some other capacity or doing this himself, which I would expect the presumed psychopath to do. I mean, he was forceful otherwise and assaulted her.


TastyEloi: Well, except that Picard was forcibly confined and this girl was always free to leave the company of this loser. Not that I don't have sympathy for her, but any control her boyfriend had over her was given to him by her.


...which is that people aren't always rational.  In fact, emotional ties often work better to keep someone confined than any cage ever would.

I've never been in an abusive relationship myself, but I've seen my friends fall into them, and I've been in non-abusive relationships where I still look back and wonder what the hell I was thinking.

"No"

Yes its just you. Its not that simple. He's clearly a sociopath and she needs protection from him and whatever insanity he thinks up next.

I've known women in their thirties that would.

Hopefully she learns a valuable lesson, punching bags don't need to apologize.  They need to remove the puncher from society, from their balls and most importantly from their lives.

Well two for flinching, assault with knife for running away.  How dare she think it's over when he didn't say it was over.

Did either of you actually read the article? He repeatedly assaulted her and made threats. At some point during all of this he "asked" her to cut an apology into arm and stole her glasses as collateral. If you just bit on the headline, than yeah, subby did a pretty bad job. If you read the article and came away with that, you need serious help.

For what it's worth, I've known plenty of men who are just as easily manipulated as the girl in TFA.  They just tend to be manipulated in different ways (gold-diggers, gangs, and the Tea Party come to mind).

MAY face charges? How 'bout Hell Yes he'll face charges! All kinds. He needs a long time out far from this girl. Like, until his 21st birthday at least. With therapy.

Except for the part where she refuses to cut herself.

Brostorm: Um, how about saying no and dating a non psychopath? Or is that victim blaming because women aren't functioning adults responsible for anything?


She did say no.
And shes not a functioning adult.... isnt she a teenager?

But I get your point. The problem is that the emotional manipulation that takes place in abusive relationships starts out as (seemingly) insignificant things that establish control, and then develop from there. Once in the thick of it, of course most people recognize what a mess theyre in, and (sadly) many feel their lives are too tangled up at that point to make leaving worth it. Or they are under a direct threat. But back to the teenager... Relationships are complex nuanced things, and its unrealistic to expect a teenager to recognize the early warning signs of a controlling sociopath (they are often so very good at what they do) AND, after weighing that against the raging hormones and emotions, to make the corrrect long term decision. Teenagers just havent unlocked that achievement at that point in life.

She may not have actually done anything.


That's a possibility, but that's my point is that we don't really know. I've seen plenty of damaged girls who subconsciously seek out unstable guys and then antagonize them until they snap so that the girls can be the victim. So I'm going to hold off on metaphorically crucifying the guy in this case (not that that's what you're doing, but others in the thread certainly are) without knowing that part of the story for certain.
