If your girlfriend hits you, then you should seriously consider ending the relationship.

Resorting to physical violence is a sign of someone who is out of control. No-one should have to put up with an abusive partner, regardless of their gender.

What you should do if your girlfriend hits you
The first thing to do is to make it clear that you won't stand for the way she's treating you. If you stay quiet and just bite your tongue, then there's a good chance that things will spiral out of control.

When you sit down to talk, it's important to draw up rules and consequences. Make her understand that, if she raises her hand to you again, you'll be out of the door.

If that doesn't stop her from acting violently towards you, then you should pack your bags and leave - just as you threatened to do.

Domestic violence against men
Too many guys think there's something shameful about seeking help for dealing with an abusive woman, but I'm here to tell you there's nothing wrong with asking for help sometimes!

Reach out and speak to anyone who will listen - as guys who keep their problems bottled-up usually end up suffering terrible consequences.

You don't want to be the kind of guy who keeps abuse secret from his friends and family, only for them to find out later that he's been stabbed or seriously injured.

And if you're sitting there thinking, "that'll never happen", I'd just like to point out that statistics show that that's not true. There are a growing number of men in your situation, and too many of them stay silent for too long!

If your girlfriend hit you, then you need to tell her not to put her hands on you again.

The same thing you would do if your boyfriend hits you - leave the place and the person immediately. She is obviously not rational enough to express her feelings and thoughts without resorting to physical violence.

Stop her.. And talk to her.. No one has the right to hit anyone.

Talk it out... Unless you deserve it.
