Red Flags for Domestic Abuse

Does your partner:

  • Expect you to spend all of your time with him or to "check in" with and let him know where you are?
  • Act extremely jealous and/or possessive of you?
  • Isolate you by controlling where you go, who you see and talk to, what you wear?
  • Treat you with disrespect and put you down?
  • Put down your friends and family, your dreams, ideas and/or goals?
  • Lose his temper frequently over little things?
  • Make you feel as if you are walking on eggshells to keep the peace?
  • Make threats to hurt you, leave you, hurt your pets, destroy your property and/or commit suicide if you don't do what he wants?
  • Play mind games or make you feel guilty?
  • Refuse to take responsibility for his actions? Blame you, drugs or alcohol, his boss, parents, etc. for his behavior?
