18 Apr Domestic Violence Warning Signs
WARNING SIGN #1: TOO MUCH TOO SOON:
An abuser will claim to be head over heels for you, having fallen in love “at first sight” and believe you are soul mates. He may compare you to his ex, claiming that he has never loved anyone as much as he loves you. He might pressure you into engaging in sex before you are ready. He will fail to respect your boundaries because you are “made for each other.” Initially his professions of love are flattering and extremely romantic, but in reality, these sentiments are used to cloud your judgment and gain your trust and confidence, which may allow the abuser to manipulate and control you in the future.
