Clumsy boyfriend accidentally hit me: what to tell people? Watch

    He has practically no spatial awareness and moves his hands around a lot when he talks. Today, he did that and managed to accidentally hit me. There's now a split in one of my lips and a very light bruise.

    Now, people that see are going to ask what happened ... and I don't know what to tell them. I'm worried of making him out to be abusive when he's obviously not.

    EDIT: The problem with telling the truth is, no matter how I phrase it, every male relative I have is going to flip out. I'm the youngest in the family and the only girl for a couple of generations, they're ridiculously over-protective.

    Say you walked into a door.
    Haha, but seriously, just say you tripped over, or if you're anywhere as clumsy as me you could use excuses such as dropping your phone on your face (I split my lip in this way once) getting drunk and walking into a toilet door (I have done this soooo many times), falling out of bed (yep, I do this a lot too) or fell in the shower and whacked your face on the thermometer control (did this too).

    lol, tell people the truth of what happened. If you try and give some bull**** reason like walking into a door people will think he actually is domestic violencing you.

    Say "I fell down the stairs, I don't want to talk about it!".

    That'll solve all your problems.

    I quoted this as it's the first person to give the proper advice: just tell people what happened and laugh about it? As someone else said, if you try and make up a story it sounds like you're then trying to cover something up....when there's nothing to cover up? Duh :rolleyes:

    Just tell them the truth.

    EDIT: and don't let your boyfriend operate heavy machinery.

    Just say he whacked you in the face cause he got over excited while talking. He didn't mean to so make it jokey. If you lie it makes it seem you like you have something to cover up. If you tell people no ones going to think "Oh abuse"

    Sad day really when any injury to a woman is assumed to be her boyfriend beating her up.

    If you come up with some crumby reason, people are just going to think its a cover up for him beating you. Just tell the truth. Something similar happened to me (split eyebrow and black eye from walking into a wall whilst at bfs), im not sure everyone believed me, but wuddayagonnado?

    Particularly unnecessary seeing as he's a foot shorter than me and I could take him if I needed to. :rolleyes:
