My boyfriend and I just had an argument...now he's run off somewhere in a temper, which I'm kind of scared about as well (he's threatened suicide before). But basically, it all started when he kicked the cat for a joke, and I got mad at him (kind of jokingly as well) and then I hit him, but sort of messing around, like I hit him a few times on the back and stomach, but in my mind it wasn't serious at all. But suddenly he just snapped, and mumbled something about his father, grabbed my arms and started twisting them, and saying, 'don't ever hit me again, that's my father's job' (his father is abusive). And he kept repeating that, staring kind of past me, without eye contact, in a trance, and I was shocked, I just said, 'I'll hit you if I want to.' I don't know why I said that, as I don't want to hit him. I don't know what to think tbh :unsure: Opinions?
