I’ve been friends with him for over a year, and he was nothing like this. I’ve always known him to be a calming presence and someone I could easily rely on, but this has really shaken me. He’s incredibly sorry and keeps asking me for forgiveness, but I know that in the past I’ve overlooked things with exes that I shouldn’t have.
Do I end things here? We’re only a week in so I can’t tell if I’m being too rash.
TLDR: My new boyfriend hit me in the heat of the moment and is incredibly sorry. Do I forgive him and move on?
Edit: I think I need to add this. The reason why I’m so conflicted is because he doesn’t have a history of abuse. He’s let me talk to his most recent ex and everything. If I thought he would continually be like this of course I would break things off.
