Hi, i am in first year of uni, have been dating a girl since the start of fresher, it going well i really like her and she likes me and we are perfect majority of the time and she makes me happy. However there have two or three instances where when she is angry goes get really violent and starts throwing things around and breaking things and even punches me (but only lightly).

However yesterday was different, she found a photo of me kissing a girl on my phone and thought i was cheating (but the photo was during fresher when we were not together, so i wasn't cheating) and she took a complete range and started punching me (this time it hurt cause she was really angry) and she started trowing things at me and shouting why did i cheat on her, after i explained to her the story, she started cried for like a hour and apologies profusely.

I get where she is coming from cause she was hurt, so i was wondering what other people do when your girlfriend gets angry (this is my first relationship so i don't know 'hacks' of the relationship). Like is there a way of calming her down?

If this is real, the solution is so obvious it need not be stated.

You tell her you don't like the way she hits you when she's angry, explain that there's easier ways to resolve things such as talking things through. It's up to her to change, maybe she has anger issues that she needs to fix.

No, you just leave, because they are violently abusive and will remain so.

in maybe 10-15 relationships I've never been punched, had things thrown at me or had my stuff smashed, it's not normal.

She might be the crazy type, who gets easily angry over really small petty things. There are also some girls who think even the slightest contact with another female is a sign that your cheating with her. IMO see how things go if you really like her then maybe she will come to understand that your faithful but if things only get worse and she just get jealous and angry and especially violent i would end the relationship. However the downside is that you now have a crazy ex girlfriend who wants you dead..........so your basically f**cked xD.

Yes it is obvious, no need for breakup. He stated it himself, he is happy with her, why end a relationship due to a few bumps and bruises. If you get one bad essay mark do you immediately give up and look for an alternative career... Of course not, you keep working on it and hopefuly see improvements in the future. Were the relationship to continue being an abusive, violent one, then a breakup would be more reasonable.

Have you spoke to her about anger management, that might be what she need to deal with.

I would advice talking it out with her then. It’s obvious so see that she likes you back, taking into consideration her “angry” reaction to thinking that you were cheating. However, if the issue persists then you should definitely consider moving on and explaining to her your emotions and problems within the relationship.

It sounds like she might need some sort of help. This isn't normal behaviour. She's obviously very distressed about it herself and it is clearly distressing for you to have to deal with, so you should encourage her to seek help for it.

Also it's not okay for her to be physically abusing you, regardless of any emotional problems she is having, and you should tell her this.

Neither of your genders matter - this is abuse - I'd wave goodbye.

She needs to get help - you need to get out.

Okay. Let's flip this. What advice would you give your mother if her boyfriend only hit her 2% of the time?

She may be a genuinely nice person for the majority of the time.
She is violent and controlling the rest.
It is not normal and it will escalate.
Call it what you want. It’s abuse and it’s not acceptable.
She needs professional help to sort it. It’s up to you to decide if you want to stay with her but if you look at the facts it’s not a good idea.
Started with light punches?
Now she hurts
You want to stick around til she picks up a knife?
Of course she cries and is sorry. It’s how an abuser controls their victim. It’s to make you feel guilty and in the wrong. Now you’re sorry for making her angry.
The best thing you can do is encourage her to seek help, wish her well and walk away.
