We got into an argument and I slapped him, I don't know what came over me, I've never slapped him before or never thought about doing so. I'm not a violent person at all, I have apologized over and over again. But he isn't budging and I can't blame him. He still wants to be apart of my daughters life ( her real father is not in the picture and she loves my bf like he is her father) and I am okay with that. I've tried talking to him but all he can say is he doesn't know what to do about it. I feel horrible!! Advice please and thank you.

You crossed a line. If I were him I'd stand my ground too. If he just let that go without consequence, it would continue or get worse. How would you feel if the roles were reversed and he hit you? Immediately he would have the stigma of a wife beater. Why should it be okay for a woman to hit a man?
However I do believe in second chances but I am not him. I think that maybe he is making you realize what your actions could cost you and will come around eventually and give you a second chance. Unless your relationship is rocky and this is just the straw that broke the camels back. Don't only focus on the slap, make sure you deal with the issues that lead to the slap.2

You got violent with him, that's a line that should never be crossed in a relationship. You have already apologized and I do feel that you are geniunely sorry, however, you can't make him accept the apology. From here going forward, it just depends on him and how he feels. I would say to just respect his space right now. Give him some time to figure things out.2
