Abuse does not have to mean that someone is physically hurting you; abuse can also be emotional, psychological, financial or sexual.
You may be confused because there are parts of that relationship that you like and that feel loving, and your partner may sometimes feel like your best friend, but if they behave in a way that means you feel scared or uncomfortable, then it is not OK. It may be that they are putting pressure on you to do something that you don’t want to do, which might include doing things online.
If you are in a relationship with someone that you think may be abusive, we can support you for free and in confidence. We will never tell you what to do, but we will talk with you about what is going on for you, discuss your options and help you to stay safe. We will only ever share information with anyone if you tell us something that means you or someone else is at risk of being hurt.
There is also help we can get for your partner, boyfriend or girlfriend if they want to receive support to help change their behaviour.
IDAS is the largest specialist charity in Yorkshire supporting people affected by domestic abuse and sexual violence.
