    I’ve been dating my boyfriend online for over 4 months now. (just to clarify, we constantly video call, both of us have confirmed our age and face, i am not being catfished.) And during all of that she’s dealt with a very verbally abusive mother. his mother constantly pushes him to be better in school, monitoring his phone time (he has a curfew and every image on his phone is sent to his mother.) placing cameras all round the house and yelling at her almost three times a week. His mother has put him into a circus program that she always makes him go to, and refuses to not take him. This still goes on even though at one point he has been sent to the hospital due to leg spasms and now has to take medication for it. one point she had almost drove my boyfriend to suicide and he is now debating running away from home. He has a plan of running somewhere, to my house. but as of right now she cant live here since i’ve gotten into a bad fight with a family member that i lived with and am temporally living somewhere else. When he needs it, I’ve been texting him trying to support him but sometimes i struggle to think of what to say to help support him, i don’t know what to do, and i cant call Child abuse services since he says it will not help and only make things worse. I want to try and help him as much as i can, and he talks about how my words help so im inclined to help him as much as i can. the problem is i don’t know what to do, and im worried he’ll try to harm himself due to all the stress. What do I do?



    Hi Nine

    I’m sorry to hear that things are so bad for your boyfriend living with his abusive mother. I hope I’m getting the pronouns correct?

    Can I ask how old he is and what country he lives in? It kind of varies what could happen next. If you don’t feel comfortable sharing that, you don’t have to answer.

    Do you worry about him a lot?

    It sounds like you’re already doing a great job supporting him. Sometimes people just need for someone to listen.

    Wishing you both all the best!🙏
