Are You At Risk?

Does your partner….

 Push, hit, pinch, shove or otherwise hurt you?

  • Want to move too quickly into the relationship?
  • Disregard your boundaries?
  • Become excessively jealous and accuse you of having affairs?
  • Want to know where you are all of the time and frequently call, email and text you throughout the day?
  • Criticize you or put you down; most commonly tell you that you are “crazy,” “stupid” and/or “fat,” or that no one would ever want or love you?
  • Take no responsibility for their behavior and blame others?
  • Have a history of battering?
  • Blame the entire failure of previous relationships on their partner; for example, “My ex was a total b***?”
  • Have a history of growing up in an abusive or violent home?
  • Insist that you stop spending time with your friends or family, or otherwise isolate you?
  • Try to control your finances, demand to know how every penny is spent?
  • Rage out of control?

These and others are warning signs of domestic violence!  Trust your instincts, and call for assistance.
