I’m not sure the best way to handle this- it is a really tricky situation, but I also had a friend dating a guy like this. They are now broken up, though I had nothing to do with that and it took her a REALLY long time for her to realize how bad he was for her. I tried to be supportive of her, but I expressed my concerns about how he treated her that simply fell on deaf ears. Even if she made the same complaints about him, once I brought up her own concerns, she would get very defensive about him and claim that he wasn’t that bad or that she overreacted earlier… The point here is that nothing is going to change until SHE is ready to change, but you can still be there for her in the mean time!
