  • Acts jealous when you talk to others, even friends.
  • Always needs to know whom you are with and where you are.
  • Becomes angry or violent easily and often blames you.
  • Controls how you dress, spend your money, and if you work or not.
  • Isolates you from other people.
  • Undermines your plans or ideas.
  • Belittles your opinions so often that you no longer trust your instincts.
  • Emotionally, sexually or physically harms you and apologizes afterwards.
  • Makes sexual demands even when you say no.
  • Looks at you or acts in ways that scare you.
  • Threatens to take your children away from you.
