Warning signs of dating abuse
If that person is your boyfriend or girlfriend it becomes a whole different story.
As in the first warning sign calling names is about control and humiliation.
Does he/she make all the decisions in your relationship? Insults you, calls you names This may seem like an obvious warning sign.
At first being together all the time may seem romantic.
Names, particularly if they are hurled at you by someone who claims to love you, can be terribly painful.
If people you don’t really care about call you names, it may not be as upsetting.
It doesn’t matter if the verbal abuse takes place in front of others or not.
An abusive partner will tell you that no one else will love you because you are fat, ugly, stupid – pick a word.
