4 Signs You’re In A Poisonous Long-Term Relationship

how you know youre dating a psycho

What I saw was heartbreaking. And then, you offer another date that you're available 3 days later and you make a suggestion that signals to him how you expect to be treated. I am so tired of this. He calls me at least once every 30mins mind you i work. Thank you all for your time. Compliments will abound, they'll use plenty of charming behavior, they'll tell you how wonderful you are all the time, etc. What doesnt kill us makes us stronger.

Why would he do this again? Confront him, or leave. Its difficult to ask help. And based on those facts and his behavior here, he's most likely doing the same thing with other women as well. I've encountered the "matchmaker" recently only to find out that what you've written here about that one is so very true. No matter what, he spins it back on you. I went through his phone a couple of nights ago and he caught me!

This guy sounds useless not good at all. I have been going through the same thing…the pain was too much. We love each other but I also have to protect myself. I felt instantly better for standing up for myself. Also if he really want to work on this, it will have to be at a safe distance before I can trust him with my heart again. Such abuse often escalates to physical abuse and psychological manipulation.

Please muster your strength and courage and find a safe place to live where he cannot access you -even if it means moving far away. Good luck to you!

You can make good decisions. Im so sorry Keira. I know how it feels to. I also that those who have never actually felt depressed dont understand what you actually go through in your mind. The sadness, emptyness, wanting to be alone, feeling like moving forward is pointless.

He should not do this to you but help you with your illness. Your post is old but I hope he has stopped treatinf that way and things are better for you. Get away from him who says cruel things, then laughs it off. He is a manipulator of the worst kind, and here is why: But not you—because now you know about it. One more time and you are out. You deserve a great guy who makes you feel loved and wonderful, all of the time. Well me n my boyfriend been fighting for two days he calls me names but I know its not right I do everything for him.

Sometimes someone can wind you up and you say stuff you regret. I think you have to look at the whole scenario, consider deeply how you feel and talk to someone close to you about it.

You have to understand the differences too. I would like advice… My boyfriend of a year and a half has been treating me very poorly. One of his female friends messaged me and was asking me questions like how do I knkw him yada yada yada…. She gets pissed when I post pics and fun things we do. I think if they live each other they should be together… He stays on Facebook and i mean he lives on social media.

Not even for Christmas and I spent alot on his daughter.. His family loves me better than he does I think. I need advice to weather I should move on or try to fix this bc I do love him.

Just a few weeks back he was late getting home and he said he had to meet a friend and let her borrow money. What I saw was heartbreaking.

The slut I mentioned earlier omg what he says to her I wish he said to me. I saw she traveled to be with him and he said that it was worth the wait and if she moved close to him she would be his.

He uses me to benefit his whores. He told this lady that he wanted her back a d what they used to have back. Ohh yeah after almost two years he refuses to post our relationship on Facebook bc he says he wants our relationship to be between us. Plz someone give me advice on what I should do. Plz and thank you.

Like all relationships, everything was wonderful until I pointed out some things and how she disappointed me. I hope God can give you strength and take care. Sounds like my ex boyfriend Igor. I promise you he is insecure and wants to dominate, no good. While yes, these things are definitely emotional abuse, there are other forms of emotional abuse that your partner may sneak in without you realizing it. The worst part about this is that if your partner is an emotional abuser, they could be abusing you on a daily basis with these things.

All this will do is lower your self-confidence and make you feel terrible about yourself. It can even cause you to suffer from depression without really knowing why. Why is my wife calling me useless. And the other days i do help i pay all the bills and everything in the house pluse paying the house girl.

Hi my boyfriend mentally abusing me. I would like to become friends with others that have been going through this because I go through this almost everyday and it just tears me to shreds sometimes i feel worthless because of it. Im going through the same , my boyfriend claims to love me and i believe him but not so much when he gets mad and irritable at me for the tiny things i do , like if i say no to doing something for him , or if i dont do as he says , or just not agreeing with him and having a difference in opinion triggers him.

Several things set him off , and i feel like its all my fault. I love him so much. Id do about anything for him. So funny your timing. I am in the process of trying to leave my abuser after 2 plus years of his constant abuse.

I have some stories I could tell you my friend, and it would be great to have someone to share this all with as I am very alone here. My boyfriend calls me names all the time and it really hurts me. So much that my self esteem has lowered, and before him I was a very confident woman.

So he got very upset because I did that. And I wondered to myself is that a valid reason to get so angry with me???? He gets mad over anything!!!!! He buys me anything… but his anger gets out of control sometimes and then he tells me to leave with my mom or dad.

This family has issues mentally and they precieve life differently than I do. I have anxiety and I feel depressed at times. My girlfriend calls me names constantly and im tired of it and she would insult me to the point where i would feel like im nothing and useless but that usually happens when shes angry and sometimes i doubt if she loves me or what.

I just went through this and I can honestly say it is one of the hardest things in the world. Take care and love to you. Im 54 and hes 52 In the past year when he gets mad he calls me all kinds of nasty names. I was abused as a child by my stepmother and ran away at age When he treats me like that it brings back all them memories as well. Anyhow the next day when we wake he is back to calling me baby ect. He acts as tho the night before never happened. Ive talked to him ask him how can he talk to me like that but says he loves me.

We both own the land and home its in both names. I feel so stuck, very sad. I just want to feel loved. My situation is very similar. This the 2nd time round for both of us, but I still have two of my children with me.

I knew him for 10 years before we moved in together 2 yrs ago. My partner now, calls me names. Filth, lowlife, dumb ass, wish he never met me, prostitutes are a better option, hes wasted his life knowing me, and then the other night he said no wonder my first husband commit suicide.

Apparently I drove him to it, calling him a poor young fellow with a bitch like me. Then I feel resentful and I dislike myself for not moving out. Mostly with my sense of humour.

He seems to be able to say anything he likes and I just have to take it. Please tell me what you did with your situation. Like you, I feel trapped. I get blamed for everything. We have two very young children.

You need a job. I feel your pain…I. This house is not a home without love. I want to leave but I think of the pain and hurt this will cause my kids and I stop. I wish so desperately for a chance in him that is tender hearted and loving…not sure what to do either…. I am going through something like this. If I try to stay calm and talk to him about how i feel he just tells me to shut up and if I mention it again he is done with me. I feel so low and unwanted that i stay depressed.

I keep praying that I will meet someone new who will give me the courage to leave him but how could that happen? I feel so alone and so broken and sadly he is all I have left. Today he broke up with me because I was hungry and i wanted to go get food. I know he will come back later and i will forgive him and blame myself like i always do. Also, if he really wants to work on this, it will have to be at a safe distance before I can trust him with my heart again.

I dont have no family or friends. When he gets mad at me and thats often he tends to call me names like a bitch and a retard and so on.

This has been since we hit our 2nd year. We have broken up alot but still strong. Im unhappy and I dont know what to do. I dont want to ise him for a place to live so thats out of why im still with him.

I cant figure it oit why I cant end things. I am very clost to his family and friends and it would hurt to leave them but what do I do. I feel like all mine and his relationship is, is emotional and some verbal abuse what do I do? I know exactly what all you ladies are feeling and I hope God hears you guys. Honey you are young, you have your whole wonderful life to live. You should start off by enrolling yourself in some educational classes. And get a little job and seek out some help from social services.

They can help you get a little apartment of your own. Then he will no your not gonna put up with his crap. Please dont allow this to be your life. Dont allow any man or person to treat you with such disrespect. They will keep doing what there doing if you allow it togo on. With all my love Robin D. I feel you on the no family or friends thing… I have no family, no friends, no car, no phone, no job, my friends are the cashiers in stores when I go outside to buy stuff.

All ladies here, you should leave those worthless men in your life as soon as possible! They try to make you feel bad because they are worthless and will never be able to love. They can only give you what they have inside and that is all negative. You cannot change them or help them. You will see that you will get your happiness and strength back being alone.

And you will meet someone a million times better. He is the only person to make me feel so happy and amazing yet the only person who can really truly hurt me. I know he loves me and I love him. Why are we doing this to eachother can someone please help and tell me what to do.

I met this guy, he is a lawyer, handsome, successful and a smart man, as soon as I met him, we started dating, 10 months later, we decided to get married, he was the perfect guy, everybody loved him, he promised me the moon, the stars and the sun. BAd MISTAKE, once we got married he showed me his real face, he was a compulsive lier, everything he said was a lie, he came from an abusive family, where his father hit his mom and she thought it was normal and that god was going to punish him for that.

Well, long story short, it only got worst, it got to a point where verbal abuse got physical and that day was the day that I decided to leave him, I never thought that he would actually hit me, even one time I asked him and he said that he would never do that. My advice RUN, run before you end up with a black eye and a broken lip. Believe me, people like that never change, they can promise you to go to psychologists, stop drinking, etc. How long did i stay?

I stayed for 6 months! I am with this guy for 9 years, I have been stupid accepting this relationship. Some minutes ago we fought, then he flipped… He called me bit. I told him to leave my apartment, he tells me to leave and refuses to leave. I am so sorry. I hope you can find the means and the courage to leave this man.

He sounds very similar to my ex. Sending love and happy thoughts your way. I hope you get out of this. I am in the same situation. I am 29 and have 4 kids with him. He calls me ugly, stupid, nobody will ever want me or ever take me serious, hoe, bitch, he talks about my mom and dad.

This evening it was the same name calling and he spit in my face three times, I walked past him and he threw his juice all over me and kmocked my plate of food all over the floor.

He called another girl he was in a relationship with prior to us getting back together a couple months ago.

He did his in front of me to tell her how much he loves her and only uses me. I was so hurt by this. I asked him to leave for hours, finally he got in the car, I load my kids up and while driving on the highway grabs the steering wheel and tried making me lose control.

I stopped a few feet before a pole. I am so tired of this. I want to be happy and enjoy life again, Look in the mirror and feel pretty again, I want my confidence and sanity back. This blew my socks off. I ask myself why is she with me? The insults carry on to the point where I break and slap her. I try to leave then she comes at me with im taking the easy way out.

Verbal abuse has and does hurt especially from your partner. Iv tried buying her nice things when she asks I go out of my way to get it. Honestly a thank you is all I would like to hear. Other problem is I leave and she will constantly text me with more insults and accusations. Then later wants to work things out. Tonight she will constantly go at me and in the morning cry because I refuse to take her to work. I just dont know anymore its draining. I am in the same situation as you but i live in his house.

I am afraid to live myself. I dont have a place to go. I am 63 and he is All these years he has been abusing be verbal. Help i dont know what to do.

I have the same problem, I am a Filipino he is Nepalese. We both are in UAE. Its difficult to ask help. Here is very strict country. We may both go jail and I cannot afford that now, from my side I still have financial responsibilities back home in the Philippines.

I cant leave UAE in this time. He is abusing me too much. I am very tired emotionally, psychologically and physically. My personal finances is also affected greatly because of him.

I still have feelings for him, but I am too scared and traumatized from what I am experiencing from him that I am willing to forget about that love. I am too scared of him now, I do not have close friends and relatives in this foreign country.

And yes I am too ashamed to admit I am victim of Domestic abuse. I cannot tell anyone. Family screwed me over maxing my credit cards so I moved in with be a couple hours away.

He is worse than my family and the m about to leave him because he calls me names and is disrespectful. I have been cheated on by this woman a confirmed 2 times and I have many suspicions of other times. This time around I recently ended it thru n thru but the abuse does not stop she is so rude and wants to intentionally hurt me mentally and verbally over the fact that I proved that she is a cheater herself and the liar. She can not handle the fact that it had been hey this whole time and she does not stop disrespecting me in every way imaginable.

I need help not from her but from myself I am afraid that I will snap she is unrelenting I do not acknowledge her or want anything to do with her but she continues to come at me hard. I feel like I am dieing a little with every insult. I am losing control I am in fear of her safety she is mentally unstable in many ways from emotional memory loss and heavy drug use if anyone can help please let me know because I have lost everyone in my life over this person.

He went as far as to call me a demon! I made a mistake and let this guy move in with me, after two months of knowing him. In the beginning it was great with me and my two sons. I tell him to get out of my house when? He keep on saying soon but still there. He acts like a kid too, he has some unusual obsession for video games, and he pay nothing in that house.

I have a boyfriend I been dating for 6 in a half years. It all started fine but as the years fly the relationship flew through the window. As soon as I got inside the car he call me names in front my kids. I want out of this relationship. Ive been woth my boyfriend for e years now. And my boyfriend is so horrible to mme. First it started out with some name calling but nothing big.

Then when i told him all my secerts and were together for a year he started to use my past against me. I lost both my parents after a year being witg him. I had no place to go. He let me live with him. And he seemed so happy i was. For about 6 months he was totally into it. Then name calling came up agaon especially when i found out he was sending flirtatious msgs to girls.

And then he said he would sell drugs for sex. And he denyed until i showed him the pictures i found. I tryed to forgive him but then he started calling me a whore, skank, ugly, fat, mcfatty just like every mean name you could think of. And maybe two hours later and would say sorry i was just mad.

But says this over and over again. For 2 years he has been hurting me mentally. After the 2 year he started hurting me physcally. The first time he pushed my down a gravally ditch… Ill never forget that day. I dont know what to do. Sense its been so long being treated like this i just feel like i deserve it. I have no family or friends. All my friends left me because of him harrassing them… I feel alone…. He called me an ignorant bitch on another occasion for really no good reason.

It was highly embarrassing. He tells me that there are many women out there and it would not take him even an hour to find one. He cheated before and i forgave him. Not sure how I put this into picture.

So I was generally a happy person until a year ago. I am not sure what caused me into all this mood and depression if u call it. Basically my life has been so different from the past. I was really happy carefree and outgoing person. But lately I have changed to very moody and depress and scared. I keep asking myself something is not right with me. Also, I do have a girlfriend. Its like a good and bad relationship. I am not sure what kept us going and me going.

When its good its really good but when its bad totally disaster. Writing this is maybe the worst decision because I might get bash. So could not tell and sick of telling my friends because they have warned me multiple times.

So my relationship with my girlfriend was a complicated one. She kept asking me to marry her but then she would yell and dumped me when shes angry with things or me. I feel like my whole life I owe her.

My decision is mostly based on her. I feel like I was scared of her as she has anger problem. She would call me names. So I just recently graduated from university. She did a lot of things to deceive my mind and my mom called that she brainwashed me. Thinking it back I kind of agree with that. So I was looking for a job in England and she told me to go to America and that she said I should wait till I look for jobs in America when I Marry her.

Then when I am not working she would call me stupid useless bitch. Which made me feel typically down and not good about myself. This energy has really drained me a lot. Feels like I should move on before it s too late.

Life has just begun. And she would argue and fight with me and break up with me. And she would call back and beg. I am not blaming anyone in this relationship or anyone. I feel like im responsible for myself. But I just feel like shes really killing me slowly and destroying my future and life. Let me say this.

My friends all tell me im different because I used to be happy calm and not irritated. But recently I have been feeling so much anxiety wont lie she gave me anxiety. Shes 29 and im Shes treats me like she treats her client. Just so u know shes a social worker and she yells at parents. She keeps saying im older than u I have more experience and I know what loves means. Most the time when she yells at me I would stay quiet. And when I finally speak up when its too much she would f yell at me till I can no longer stand it.

Also, I went to two counselor both of them say that shes abusing me. I told her shes abused me emotionally before and we stopped arguing for a while. She kept telling how all the problem is me me me me me. And her friend was saying to her what about you?? I just felt so confused every time for about a year. And now I feel like tho I made so much mistake I feel theres a light coming to get me. That ill be ok again. Things had gone so complicated that I no longer know whats the right thing to do.

Also, she wanted to know where I am and what im doing all the time. And when im doing something or spending time with family or others she would break up with me or yell at me. When I changed all my time for her she would instead spend her time on video games and go out. And I would not say anything. Not sure why I could not end things? And she would also yell at her mom like it was the end of the world.

Am I being emotionally and verbally abused? I cry every night I beg for his loverall but I feel hated by him and he leaves me once a week to teach me a lesson. I never done this before I have this man who says all these men words but sometimes even he around his buddies they say hey look at me I am your girlfriend I laugh but inside I just like too cry so bad it hurts they say wow men she takes like a champ.

Ive been in a relationship for 11 years and I have 4 kids with him. Every day since I have been with him has been a rollercoaster. He fights with me every single day in the morning and and in the night when he gets home from work. I take care of my baby he is 1 year and 2 months.

Every day I cry and every day I say it will get better but it just never does. Anyone have any suggestions? I have been with my bf for 6 years. He is very manipulating and emotionslly,financially, and verbally abusive. He constantly kicks me and my son out knowing we have no where to go. He gets very physical sometimes. I never know what his mood is going to be like from one min to the next. I think I need help. Idk what to do. Today we had a huge, awful fight.

It started because last night, I said whatever to him going to the club with his lady friends from work and his best friend. Him and I went together for our first time with some of his friends on his birthday and I honestly hated it.. But he loved it. My lack of remembrance is seriously ruining my life. I work full time at a Petro Canada gas station and he just quit his job at Safeway.

After I threatened to call the police, he told me no one has ever enraged him so much to make him want to kill them.

All of this while having a tantrum. I wish there were an end in sight. An end to something, anyways. I was with this girl for a short time.

I soon saw it and stood up for myself. It is a sad thing that she does not understand why I started to refuse to offer help directly. When she was in good mood it was amazing. But soon directly the insulting started again. Retard, asshole, stupid, that i dont care for her, emotional abusing. Telling me if I like her to give euro.

I do understand she is really sick ,but aint golden ticket to have bad personality. Few days ago was my point reached when after 2 days of blaming me she asked me to help her, she didnt feel good. I told her if she was for real, that all these bad insults from her if she understood that i do not work that well. So in the end ifollowed my heart again, went by bike through snow for 14 km with stuff for her. She didnt open at all. I waited half hour,worried, rang doorbell several times, yelled from outside.

After 30 min she opens window and tells me that she wont let me in. After that I got insulted again I do not care for her. It s painfull but I need to cut it. I have been off and on with my boyfriend now the father of my child for four years.

To offer an important example, one of the most common way psychopaths initially lure victims, Donna explains, is by a combination of 1 love bombing and flattery; 2 persistence, and 3 mirroring our identities and values, to reveal a false sense of compatibility.

Love bombing is a process commonly used by cults, such as the Moonies, in the initial phases of attracting new members. Donna not only explains each strategy used by the psychopath, but also insightfully analyzes the reasons behind victim response. They are also highly persistent , sometimes persevering for years until they catch and hook you emotionally. Persistence pays off, Donna elaborates, because people tend to associate it with love and commitment. Why else would anyone waste so much energy on a romantic pursuit?

As far as psychopaths are concerned, the answer, unfortunately, is because they want power and control. Psychopaths engage in a game-like hunt or pursuit of the individuals they momentarily desire, hyperfocusing on them like predators upon their prey.

Sometimes, the more you evade their grasp, the more interesting the hunt becomes for them. But they never pursue victims because they love or care about them.

Their persistence is about the pleasure of the hunt, to possess, consume and destroy their prey. Red Flags of Love Fraud offers both information and insight. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to learn how to identify the danger signs in others as well as to confront the vulnerabilities within. How to Identify and Escape from Psychopathic Seduction. April 2, Categories: Under no circumstance should you apologize to sooth things over, which is always what I did.

A typical conversation would go like this:. You should only apologize if you are truly wrong and can admit your mistake, and then apologize once. After that, the discussion is over. There is this guy at work who likes me. Do you mind if I like…hook up with him? To see if it will rekindle our spark? I also told her not to talk to me until after.

I forgave her at the time and things resumed as normal, but the relationship only lasted another month, fortunately.

Thankfully, I figured out game , and eventually decided to give the relationship thing another go. She tells me all the time that she is truly happy, and I can see it in her eyes.
