I believe that my chidhod best friend is in an abusive relationship. I have not seen her face to face in almost a year. Ever since around Christmas she has been pretty unresponsive to my messges over facebook. We used to be able to talk for hours and hours, now as soon as I send her a message she comes up with an excuse to go..usually pretty lame excuses, like being tired at 7 pm. Nobody else has seen her either , people have given up on asking her to go out because she always backs out last minute. It all started about a year ago when she started dating a guy about 10 years older. I think he has tried isolating her from her friends and family from the get go. He wanted to move with her 4 hours North of where we all live. I wrote another story about it asking for advice. Luckily it hasn't happened (I don't think). Then again I'm not sure because all of the suden she has stopped responding to me AT ALL. I have sent her numerous messages over facebook and can see she has read them but she will not respond to me, and its really starting to worry me. I just was wondering if anyone who has been in an abusive relationship would have some advice on how I should try to help her? What did your friends or family do to help you?
