Spotting abusive men dating
Most abusers are very similar and act in similar ways, and while they are actually very clever, their predictable nature can often give them away.The first thing you might notice about an abusive individual is that they are very demonstrative and emotional.It might seem incredible that someone is so besotted with you after just one date, but it’s actually a red flag for dubious behavior and unwarranted attachment.It’s not normal to be in contact with someone 24/7 especially if you’ve only gone on a couple of dates with them.Abusive girlfriends and wives are underreported because some of the male victims are too ashamed to report it.
The abuser will question the victim about who the victim talks to, accuse the victim of flirting, or become jealous of time spent with others.
As this behavior progresses the situation will worsen, and the abuser may assume all control of finances or prevent the victim from coming and going freely.
A victim often has known or dated the abuser for a brief period of time before getting engaged or living together.
Many victims think nobody will believe they're being abused because in public the abuser is sweet and charming.
However, the police, a doctor, or a counselor will believe you because they see it all the time.
