My boyfriend has a really bad temper


Hey Rosie,

My boyfriend has such a bad temper. The smallest thing and he blows up and has yelled at me in front of friends and my cousins. He has pulled over and told me to get out of his car. He has also slapped me twice and then said he was so sorry and that he would never do this again.

Everyone has said that I should leave. I know that this doesn’t sound good, but he’s a good guy, he just has some poor people skills. How can I get him to change?


Hello my friend,

Let me respectfully say this: GET OUT NOW! Look, this isn’t good and he has a lot of work to do on himself and you are not his “fixer” – Get Out !

It is bad enough that he is verbally abusing you, but it seems as though it is trending up now to physical abuse, which is even worse, in my opinion. You can never tell how far this can go and how badly you can become hurt! Do not make excuses for his poor choices and behaviour, abuse is abuse and this is totally unacceptable!

I am not saying that people can’t change, but this isn’t your job to change him. He is abusive and you have to know when enough is enough. I’d tell him that he needs to get help, wish him the best and walk away while you can do so. You have a long life ahead of you and this type of toxic behaviour you can do without! You are worth much more than this!
