8 Early Warning Signs of an Abusive Partner – Domestic Violence

Produced by: Dr. Antonio

So warning signs do exist, but they aren’t easy to recognize or accept. Here are eight of the most common.

1. Moving Very Fast.

2. Unrealistic Expectations and “Should”

3. Excessive Gifts and Love Bombing

4. Hypersensitivity and Jealousy

5. Criticism and Superiority

6. Blamers

7. Imposed Isolation

8. Mean or Abusive Towards Others

Observing any of these signs once doesn’t mean you should run for the hills. But if you’re seeing multiple warning signs or a progressive pattern develop, you should be concerned. Be wise, trust your instincts, and protect yourself. If something doesn’t sound or feel right, do what’s best for you and keep yourself safe.
