There is no doubt being in a physically abusive relationship is frightening and what I am going to tell you next is going to take a great deal of courage on your part, but many women take this risk: There should be an "Abused Women's Center" in your city or town. If you can phone from a pay phone then do so (not from your home or your abuser may trace the call.) Make an appointment with them and tell them EXACTLY what is happening to you. They will usually see you immediately and prepare to start helping you by finding a "safe house" for you to stay. No one knows where you will be staying. They will provide protection, counseling and often help with legal counsel and then help to get you back on your feet. If you can't find the phone number for the Abused Women's Center then call "Mental Health" and they will give you the phone #. No woman/man should have to put up with mental or physical abuse. Your abusive partner has instilled fear into you, but also has brain-washed you by taking your independence and dignity away. It is nothing to be ashamed of and no one is going to think less of you for staying with this person. Most people realize it's not all that easy to just pack your bags and move on because some people have children, others like yourself have no family or friends or, the person is just terrified or they lack money to start a new life. Abusers weave a very precise web and they know how to push the victims buttons. Say nothing! Just phone that Abused Women's Center and get out of there!!!! If you need help finding an Abused Women's Center then please post your City, town and State on this board and I'll be happy to research it for you and find out where the closest Abused Women's Center is. Good luck hon You stay strong! Marcy This is clearly a very difficult situation, however, there are many resources out there in the way of community and governmental agencies that can assist a person in leaving an abusive situation. The best thing may to leave when the abusive person is not there. Leave no forwarding address, nothing. Contact these agencies and let them work for you.

Why do you think some people do not want to help people they know in an abusive relationship?

One reason may be is that they don't know how to help. Another reason may be they are afraid to help. The power that an abuser has over the abused is frightening, both emotionally and physically. It is not unheard of that an abusive relationship can end in murder. Often times the abused person has been brainwashed into thinking they don't deserve anything better. Or they know they need help, but are too afraid to ask for it. There are professional organizations that are trained to help people get out of abusive relationships. They will offer a safe place to stay, counseling and the tools to start their life over. The abused person is the only one who can make positive steps to leave an abusive relationship. The best that family and friends can do is support that decision.

Should you go for the friend that does like you but is afraid of a relationship or for someone from a more upperclass with slightly conservative POV in life that you have less in common with?

You sound like you are trading off stocks and bonds and not dealing with the reality of what a true relationship is. If your friend is afraid of a serious relationship there is no reason you cannot remain friends and, if you choose to be with the other person on a friendship basis and have less in common then perhaps you could just be friends with them as well. There is no rush for a serious relationship. The person who is afraid of a relationship may well change in the future and the person you have nothing in common with may well teach you other aspects of life.

How does fear affect communication in a relationship?

Fear affects communication greatly in a relationship. If you are constantly afraid of how your partner or friends will react it keeps you from stating your opinions and sharing what could be valuable information. Without communication you can hardly call it a relationship. On the opposite side, if you constantly strike fear into your partner they could be afraid to talk to you which will keep you from really knowing them and maturing the relationship.

How long does it typically take a victim to finally leave an abusive relationship?

There is no answer to your question, at least not one that you can be sure is right. What you need to consider is how strong the person is, how good a support system other family and friends are providing... and Does this person truly want out? Trying to change someone, staying because you love the person or being afraid to leave all are major factors in how long it takes.
