As a college student, I have an irregular schedule so I get mixed up with other classes.

I talk to this 20-21 something woman who is my classmate. She has a boyfriend; and as I've noticed their relationship seems so strained.
Once, when I borrowed her cellphone, I accidentally opened her incoming messages from her BF and the first text message was : "You bitch, I hope you die" the second one was : "You little whore, I'm going to kill you.."
I stared at these messages, thinking, wasn't this guy her boyfriend?
For a couple of weeks I just kept mum, but I couldn't notice that there are times when she comes to class, she's crying (and I have a shrewd feeling that she's arguing with her guy). There was once when she burst out crying in the middle of the class.

I was seriously thinking that this woman is being abused by her boyfriend, so I talked to her.
I asked her what was the problem with her boyfriend (but I didn't bring up the text messages I once read, she might think that I was invading her privacy). She told me that she was happy with him. I told her not to lie to me, and asked her what was the bruise on her right arm. And again, she told me she bumped on the wall a bruise that large? No way.

The time came when she finally told me that her boyfriend gets really angry with her since she talks to other guys. I told her that's no reason for him to verbally abuse her.

This was the middle of our conversation that I could never forget:

Me: "You're being abused. You should ditch him; this isn't right."
Classmate: "No, I told you, he just gets really angry with me for talking to other guys."
Me: "Well, are you having sex with these guys you're talking to?"
Classmate: "Huh?! Of course not!"
Me: "Well, why does he gets angry with you for that reason?"
Classmate: "He's just being overprotective."
Me: "Overprotective isn't cute! So is hitting you!"

(and this was the line that I couldn't get out of my system.)

Classmate: "Edward is protective of Bella. So?"

I stared at her so much I thought my eyeballs were about to pop out.

"Excuse me?"
"I'm a Twilight fan. Edward is protective of Bella and loves her so much that he doesn't want other guys being with her. I know my boyfriend just thinks that, he's just being protective of me."

As she said that, I felt like everything was just being sick and twisted by something so evil. I just stared at her.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE THESE THINGS WOULD HAPPEN WITHIN REACH!!

Thoughts?

I'm....Speechless. Oh dear god. But it's probably not JUST the book Twilight that influenced this behavior, many people who are abused believe that their partners do it to them out of some twisted version of love, but being a Twilight fan, a book with a cult following that could rival Harry Potter, added to this influence. What I really find shocking is that things like this are all over the internet and news and that there is no way Meyer could have not heard of at least a good few of them, and yet she still hasn't said anything against it.

It's a damn BOOK for gods sake. Not to mention Fantasy. I haven't seen anyone take the Artemis Fowl series to heart.

mayev, you've gotta be bullshitting us. There's no way that's real.

Heathus Christ, if you think that your boyfriend physically and verbally abusing you is okay, you deserve what you get.

I'm sorry, but that woman is an idiot. Abuse is a very serious thing. There was one woman who's boyfriend tied her to a chair, threw gas on her and lit her on fire. Is that being over-protective? I don't think so.

she's usually absent in class. if she attends it, she doesn't care; doesn't know what's the schedule of the exams, what's the next lesson, stuff like that.

but EVERY lunch time i see them together, and it makes me think does she have other friends than that guy?

i see them together EVERY TIME

it's real. she's a twilight fan. and as she said that her boyfriend is Edward Cullen-like [the guy is good-looking too], her face radiates like she's been very blessed.

and may i add, she's 21 years old?

and just last monday, (it was raining hard in my place), i was waiting for my mom to fetch me infront of my school, and i saw her and her guy arguing (again ) and see this :

guy pushes her out of the car, and speeds away and left her crying in the rain. i felt sorry for her and offered to share my umbrella, but she refused and started whining the guy's name... can you sound any more pathetic?

I don't get it. How can she be around a guy like that? Does she have any bruises or something? As much as I dislike Twitards, I don't want them abused...

i'm not sure about that bruise i saw on her arm last time. if she did bump into a wall, she must've been blind. but i don't see anymore bruises on her, she just cries all the time and whenever i talk to her, all she talks about is her boyfriend. it's seriously getting annoying. at times i think she deserves to be treated that way
