1. He tried to murder my sister

“Not my ex, but my sister’s ex-husband. He always gave me weird vibes, but I blew it off. The day they moved into their new place I stayed over and we all had to sleep in the living. In the middle of the night I woke up to him standing over me breathing really heavily. I was freaked out and pretended to be asleep. My sister woke up and was confused asking what he was doing. We both assumed he was sleep walking and let it go. Forward a year later and he attempts murdering my sister by secluding her in the woods and beating her with a crowbar. She managed to escape and received 20 staples in her head. Another year later and he brutally beats another woman. I later found out he would beat my sister and told her if she ever left him that he knew where I worked and would kill me. The judge in town has some relationship with the family and he is still running free today.” — pandapowwow

2. He carved my name into his skin

“In high school, my ex-boyfriend cut my name into his arm with a box cutter. When his stepmom saw it, he told her I coerced him into doing it.” — przybylowicz

3. He got drunk and choked me

“We were drinking at home, having a good time. All the sudden he came towards me with a camera, grabs my throat and semi-chokes me while taking a picture of my face with his other hand. I pushed him off and yelled ‘Stop,’ then ran into the kitchen and broke down crying. I asked him why the fuck he would do something like that, he said he just wanted to see what it would look like. He had never done anything like that before, it was super creepy and scary. Needless to say I noped out of that relationship.” — pyrill
