I am currently in an abusive relationship and I am trying to get out. I find that his has been very difficult to do because there are very few resources to help single women without any children. I live in Pennsylvania and I have been online for the last few hours looking for some help. There is some homeless shelters that I can go to, but something in me will not allow me to go this route. I know going to a shelter could save my life but I just cant.

You need to inform authorities about this and try and speak to any women forum. Tell your parents about it or your sister someone needs to be involved. Also go back to India if its truly bad. This man does not deserve you by his side if he is abusive. There are ways you just need to be more brave and open about it.

You can get a pfa on that person that is the first step. I know about the shelters myself. Understand where you are there. If you need help contact me via private message and when I can I will respond. Hugs

Do you have a local ywca? I know the one near me help women get out abusive situations. Wolfie is right. She know about the system in Pa. She will be a prefect person for ya to talk to. Also contacting the athourities is a wonderful idea. Now more people are aware that, saddly, in this coutry it is a major problem and less and less police department have programs in place. It just it not tolorated and no one should live like that. Afriend of mine here in NY is in an abusive relationship and everyone around her sees it. She just doesn't want to or is not ready to admit it. I have tried to let her know that we are all here for her and I know she is breaking her mom's heart by staying with this boy.
Heyya (((((((Wolfie)))))) how are ya doin? miss ya like crazy and miss talking to ya more.
