A good relationship truly is one of the greatest joys in life; an abusive dating relationship can be one of the worst.

It’s very important to keep an eye out for signs that may indicate the person you are hoping to spend your life with might make your life a living hell.

Narcissists behave as if life has hurt them, and ONLY THEM.

In their twisted, deranged, myopic minds, they believe because they had ONE BAD DAY that they can be the walkings turds they are to everyone because of…ONE BAD DAY.

There are three main types of dating abuse that you should be aware of when you or one of your friends are dating.

The main types of abuse are physical abuse, emotional abuse, and sexual abuse.

There are distinct differences between the three, and when you are aware of what each means, you will be able to identify it at the drop of a dime.
