This research was done due to the media’s overwhelming influence on the public. The increasing amount of stresses on the public, and the lack of healthy ways to release the stress can result in harm to the community. The purpose of this project was to see the pattern of abusive relationships between men and women. In order to discover those patterns, Google Trend searches were made using the key words abusive girlfriend and abusive boyfriend. After, doing the research it showed specific months that had a higher search rate than others. Some months repeated a higher search rate year after year. For example, February, May, June, and September. Concluding findings, searching additional terms could have possibly produced slightly different results. As well as comparing the information to times that certain abusive related media came out to the public.
