‘I Love My Boyfriend But He Forces Sex On Me And I Don’t Know How To Stop Him’
MY boyfriend is forcing sex on me.
We get on well, mostly. We’ve been together for six years and he’s my rock – but there are times we don’t get along.
He’s 27 and I’m 21.
Even when we argue and he sulks, he always wants sex.
When I say no, he jumps on me and claws at my clothes.
I tell him I don’t want to do it but sometimes I have to give in because he’s halfway through it anyway.
He’s so strong. But I don’t want to lose him.
This isn’t love.
It’s abuse – rape if you say no and he continues.
You believe you love him but love is about care and respect between two people who feel equal. You deserve better than this.
If this was your friend or your sister, what would you be telling them?
