My friend is a couple of years older than me, and her boyfriend was a few years older than her and lived in another county... Behind her back, he'd cheat, he'd say horrible things about her and tell people he was single. One day, when she went over, he was intoxicated and shouted such mean things to her and made her really upset. He kicked her out, leaving her stranded with no way home... I listened to her story and it broke my heart. I stayed by her side when she needed me but had no idea what else I could do. She told me he'd get in trouble and ruin his chances at work if we did anything.
...he'd send unsolicited d pics and message her asking for pictures. I felt so helpless, like all i could do was comfort her and make sure she was okay afterwards. I didn't know what I could do to help her. She made new accounts, and he found them. She blocked him, he made new accounts, pretending to be someone else. It would've really helped to have more information available to us about what we could have done or where we could've gone for support. I felt like I had failed as her friend.
