Is My Partner Abusing Me?

    

Do you find yourself constantly apologizing for your partner's behavior?

Are you always making excuses for their temper, or taking extreme measures to keep them from getting jealous? If this is the case, you could be in an abusive relationship.

There are many signals beyond the obvious physical or sexual abuses many people associate with dating violence. Many abusers will attempt to manipulate emotions and control their partner's social life long before ever laying a hand on the victim.

Does Your Partner...

  • Check your phone or email without your permission?
  • Constanly text/call you asking where you are, what you're doing, who you're with, etc.?
  • Put you down?
  • Always act jealous or insecure?
  • Have an explosive temper?
  • Isolate you from family or friends?
  • Make false accusations and/or twist your words?
  • Refuse to take responsibility for his or her actions?
  • Have frequent mood swings?
  • Physically hurt you in ANY way?
  • Act in a possessive manner?
  • Boss you around?
  • Threaten you in ANY way?

If this sounds familiar...

you could be in an abusive relationship. Know these signs and refuse to stand for them.
