My boyfriend hit me last night. He did it in retaliation, as I slapped him round the face first, but he hit me back much harder and really hurt my jaw.
Now, I'm not looking for sympathy because as I said, I slapped him first so I somewhat deserved something back. What I do want to ask is do you think a relationship can be fixed after something like this?
We've been together quite a while and this is the first time anything like this has happened. He's not a violent person and I genuinely think it was just a response to me slapping him. We had both been drinking as well.
He told me to shut the fuck up over something that was so frustrating that I slapped him as a joke. Turns out he didn't see it that way.
This morning he apologised profusely and said he felt awful. I also apologised and told him that I understood that my actions were what caused him to act that way. He said it didn't excuse his behaviour. I do believe that he is sorry.
I would appreciate some advice. I kind of look back on it and laugh, but at the same time I know things are very wrong when there is violence in a relationship.
