  • Can abusive men change?

No. People like that don't change. It is a problem in their brains, it's a control thing. I dated a guy( very similar to your story) things were great at first, probably the happiest I had been with a guy, he showered me with gifts, never talked to other girls, he was sweet blah blah. And then we moved in together and it was like a switch was flipped. It was horrible, he would leave me on the side of the road, he would hit me, he would throw things at me ruin my things. I blamed it on alcohol. But it wasn't that, it was who he was. They do this trick where they're sweet, that's just to lure you in. He will do the same to this girl and so on. I am happy for you that you removed yourself from that situation. I for one know how difficult that probably was for you. Be happy with your new guy, your ex is this girls problem now.

Of course they can! It just may have taken some time, and maybe he thought things over

They can, but when somebody changes, it is obvious. Their whole life changes. This guy has to change from being selfish to being good, he will never stop abusing women until he stops being selfish. Just dating another woman will not cause him to change. Tons of movies and music try to claim that a man will change once he finds "the one" but this is a huge lie.

Very rarely. Abusive people are that way because they care more about themselves than others. And that's not something people can just change easily.

Nope, they don't change. Let her know! If she can see him for how he treated you, good on her. If she decides to stay and gets abused, maybe she'll learn and have the sense to get out of the relationship.
