Having a successful and healthy relationship takes work, but not the stressful and tedious work you might be thinking. You can have a healthy relationship by following just a handful of simple tips. We asked five relationship experts what their number one tip is when it comes to maintaining a healthy relationship.

Here are the top 5 relationship tips anyone can follow:

1. Avoid making assumptions.

When people know each other for a while, they can sometimes predict how their partner is going to react. However, when couples fall into a pattern of making assumptions about each other too readily, some significant problems may follow, “Communication between partners can shut down over time. Partners may stop being curious about each other, and in fact may be making incorrect assumptions about each other that can lead to miscommunications. Additionally, people’s thoughts and experiences or even who they are can change over time. When partners make assumptions about each other they may fail to acknowledge how each has grown over time and this can create distance between them.” Continue to communicate about feelings, don’t hide your reactions, and always express what it is you need from your partner.

2. Focus on the positive.

Instead of focusing on flaws in your partner, which perpetuates negative feelings about the relationship, focus on the positive aspects of your partner. “It’s important to look for any positive qualities that you admire in your partner.” “If you have experienced a lot of conflict in your relationship this may pose more of a challenge initially, but I encourage couples to find even small things that they can appreciate about their partner. When you have identified something that you like about your partner (e.g., their patience) it can be helpful to connect the quality with an experience that you’ve had with them. You can also reference qualities that initially attracted you to your partner or an aspect of their character that may have been demonstrated more recently.”

3. Play together and stay together.

Take turns planning weekly romantic date nights or date days. “Hiking, biking, skating or long walks are great things to do. Learn something new together as a couple such as wine making, snow shoeing, a cooking or dance class.” Then, every couple months, even if it’s just a weekend, get away together. “Getting away from everything once a year is also a great way to stay close to each other. You can remove yourself from the everyday distractions at home and enjoy a fun new environment together. Diversity is the key to a strong relationship because things never get stale. You always have something to look forward to.”

4. Maintain your individuality.

Each person in a healthy relationship needs to know who they are and what makes them happy. “Many times when people begin a relationship, they try to please the other person and neglect themselves in order to begin the relationship.” “People ideally begin to develop who they are in childhood and build off this as they mature throughout their life. If both people have a healthy sense of self they can develop a good relationship by bringing their similar qualities as well as their differences to the relationship, and they won’t have one person dominate or overshadow the other.”

5. Choose the right person.

If you really want to know the key to having a healthy relationship, it comes down to who you select to be your partner. “Selecting the right person with whom to build a relationship and share your life is half the battle.” “Yes, you must find them attractive and enjoy their company, but they must also have a good heart, treat you well, and want to be with you. So don’t place all the emphasis on attraction and connection.” The bottom line is that if you’re only just physically attracted to someone and don’t really enjoy spending time with them outside of the bedroom—or if you don’t fully trust, accept, or respect them—the relationship will struggle to be healthy. Find someone else.

Some people will tell you relationships are work, and there’s some truth to that, but it’s also trivializing the matter. Relationships, and fostering healthy relationships, are about more than simply working at it. Your relationships are your life, they are living, evolving things just as you are. And as a result they should grow and change just as you do. As you grow in your relationship, keep in mind these five simple tips. And don’t forget to enjoy the ride.

I have a lot of guys who read the blog, and I get tons of emails from guys, and the most common problem I hear about is, “my wife never wants sex!”

So today I want to present 10 of the most common reasons I’ve come across why a woman may say “no”. If you’re one of my female readers, read the list, and if you think I’m missing something, chime in in the comments! And if you’re a guy, read the list and see if any resonate with you–and then talk to your wife about them. (And if that’s hard to do, here’s a post I wrote a while ago to start get the conversation about valuing sex in marriage going).

If your wife never says yes to sex, one of these might be the reason why

So here are 10 reasons a woman doesn’t want sex:

1. She doesn’t feel connected to you.

For a woman, to have sex after you haven’t talked much in a while feels strange at best, and insulting or degrading at worst. If you haven’t shown that you care what’s going on in her heart, and if you haven’t shared your heart, it’s hard for her to want to open up. For her, sex means getting physically vulnerable. That’s hard to do. If she doesn’t feel as if you’ve been emotionally vulnerable, then sex is often off the table.

For you, of course, sex is often the doorway into emotional vulnerability, since you feel so close to her afterwards. But realize that for her, she needs you to open up first. So spend some time talking and doing stuff together first! Some ideas:

2. She feels overwhelmed.

Women are multitaskers; because we feel so responsible for everyone in our lives, it’s hard for us to turn off the voices in our head that are always reminding us of things that need doing. We feel constant stress about stuff that needs to get done. If there are too many things on our plate, we won’t be able to relax at night. And because women need to be able to concentrate on sex in order for our bodies to feel good (if our heads aren’t in the game, our bodies won’t follow), then feeling overwhelmed kills our sex drive. For men, sex is nice distraction. For women, distractions make sex virtually impossible.

The solution? Help her not feel so overwhelmed! Talk to her about what’s on her plate. Help her through figuring out how to say no to some things. Help her with some of the evening routines, like making lunches for the next day or putting kids in bed. Spend the last 15 minutes of the day helping her think through and talk through what needs to be done tomorrow, so that she can let it go.

3. She has tunnel vision (often for the kids; or for her job)

When something is on our minds, it’s difficult to stop obsessing about it. While men often operate in boxes, and can switch from one box to the next, when something is really worrying us, or when there’s a big challenge ahead, it’s hard to put it aside. Whether it’s a sick child or a parent who is in trouble; a big project due at work; or a friend in crisis, if something is on our hearts, it’s hard to concentrate on sex (and again–sex needs our brain to be present!)

What to do: If she’s worried, listen to her. Let her talk. Pray with her. Be patient. Sometimes she needs the reminder to put things in God’s hands!

4. She’s simply exhausted.

Yes, sex helps you sleep better. But when you are really tired, sex doesn’t seem that appealing.

What to do: Too make you sure neither of you are too tired for sex, take the initiative in setting a bedtime for both of you. Go to bed at a decent hour every night, together. Take as much of the responsibility for some of the housework and childcare as you reasonably can. A good rule of thumb is this: If she is working, then you should be, too. After dinner, if she’s busy cleaning up or putting the kids to bed, then make sure you find a task that needs doing as well!

5. Sex doesn’t feel that great.

Let’s face it: men pretty much always climax during sex. Women don’t. And for many women, sex just doesn’t feel that great. Maybe orgasm is elusive for her. Maybe she’s never figured out how to make it feel good. Maybe she’s said to you, “It’s okay, honey, I don’t mind. I just like feeling close to you.” Eventually that gets old. And it’s hard to keep having sex year after year if she honestly doesn’t feel good.

The solution: Figure out how to make it feel good for her! Remember that her sexual pleasure matters and talk to her about it, because she may have a hard time believing it.

6. Sex feels degrading, like you’re using her.

God designed sex to be threefold: spiritually intimate (feeling like you’re one); emotionally intimate; and physically intimate. Unfortunately, sometimes in our culture we focus so much on the physical that sex actually becomes impersonal. If you’ve used porn, for instance, and she knows that you derive sexual pleasure from looking at other women, then she’ll feel like sex is dirty. You don’t really want HER; you just want release. And you may even be thinking about those images when you’re with her!

Now, that may not be the case. But if you’ve used porn, that’s often what she’ll fear. Show her that you’re getting real about addressing the porn issue in your life.

Join an accountability group. Tell her what steps you’re going to take to make sure that the next time you feel stressed, you’ll have something else to turn to rather than porn.

Or perhaps the problem is not with you at all. Perhaps she grew up with sex being used as a weapon against her, and she was abused or assaulted. Then it’s very hard to get excited about sex in your marriage.
7. Her hormone levels are all over the place.

Yes, hormones play a huge part in a woman’s libido! And when our hormones are out of whack, then our libido may be, too.

If you fear that there’s something really wrong, encourage her to see a doctor. But also educate yourselves on how to best support her hormones. Start eating real food, and not so much packaged foods. Exercise. Get good sleep.

8. She doesn’t feel a great need for it, but she does feel a need for other things.

For you, sex may be one of your primary needs. But if she lives a really busy life, her primary need may be something very different. Maybe what she needs to feel at peace is a few hours every week by herself, with no kids hanging off of her and no demands on her. Maybe she needs some time to read a book, pursue a hobby, or even just have a bubble bath. Ask her, “what do you currently feel like you have no time to do but, if you did it, it would help you feel like you’re on an even keel?” And then help her find time every week to do that one thing!

9. She hates her body.

You may look at her and want her. But if she feels as if she doesn’t measure up, then it’s hard for her to feel sexy.

So much of a woman’s libido is tied up in feeling like she is desired. The really miserable part for you men, though, is that it isn’t enough for you to actually desire her. She has to feel as if she’s worthy of being desired. And so if she feels fat, or if she feels as if her body has gone downhill, then it’s hard for her to feel uninhibited.

So boost her self-image! Don’t tell her that you don’t think she’s attractive, unless you want to kill your sex life. Talk to her about what specifically you like about her body. When you’re relaxing together, touch her there and tell her, “I love looking at this.” And tell her WHY you love her, too.

10. Your hygiene isn’t the best it could be.

Having unpleasant conversations is difficult, and many women just avoid them. I have so many women send me in questions saying, “How can I tell my husband that I don’t like making love to him when he hasn’t brushed his teeth first?” And this has been going on for years! They’ve been avoiding sex, or trying to make sex go as quickly as possible and getting very little out of it, because they’re afraid to say, “your breath stinks.”

This one is so easy to fix! Before you try to initiate sex with your wife, take a shower. Brush your teeth. And put on pyjamas with no holes in them! See if that makes a difference.

So there you go! 10 reasons why women often try to avoid sex. Remember–I also have several books and a course on how to boost your libido that can help women see sex differently. But today, I thought I’d help men try to see it from the wife’s point of view.

What Are the Most Important things a Wife Expects From A Husband?

“Men always want to be a woman’s first love – women like to be a man’s last romance. – Oscar Wilde”

Each woman is different from the other, and so are her expectations. However, there are some basic things that every woman hopes for in her marriage.

1. Love and affection are the foundations:

Women long for affection in their relationship, whether they are newly married or have spent a couple of years in their marriage. They like to know that they are valued and loved by their husbands. As an ideal husband, you need to spend some fruitful time with your wife. Be affectionate to her, and pay attention to her small demands and wishes. Men should try to be sweet in their words and kind in their deeds.

2. A bit of admiration can do wonders:

Tell your wife how her bright smile makes your day. And that will make her day! Your small words of appreciation make her happy. Praise her for her qualities — she may be a good cook, a good painter, a great homemaker, a caring mother, or a successful career woman who is a pro at her work. Respect her dedication to her work and do not insult her work.

Even if your wife is a stay-at-home mom, her contribution to the family is immense and she needs that recognition from you.

3. A husband addicted to her:

If your wife is out of the city or has gone to her parents’ place, let her know that you are missing her. Show her how much you are addicted to her. Women like their men to miss them.

4. She needs attention:

Women do not want a husband who is more attracted to his smartphone than to his wife. Would you appreciate if your wife is busy browsing on the phone when you try to talk to her something important? Similarly, she, too, expects you to listen to her with attention. Do not brush aside her concerns or worries as trivial.

Pay attention to her when she needs you. It reflects your love for her.

5. A partner who is a friend:

She leaves behind her parents, family, and friends to live with you for the rest of her life. She enters into a hitherto unfamiliar life, and you are the only person she can trust. You are the only one with whom she can share her thoughts and talk her mind.

In short, she seeks a friend in you, a friend who is there with her always and forever. Give her company, spend time with her, crack jokes, and pursue some common interests to strengthen your beautiful relationship.

6. Encouragement to follow her dreams:

Your wife might have compromised on her career or hobbies to make time for you and the kids. Encourage her to take up a job again so that she can fulfill her dreams. She will not feel deprived or live with disappointment that she hasn’t achieved what she wanted in life.

Rather than being judgmental, support her in her endeavors. She will be proud of you forever.

7. A bond of equals:

Marriage is a bond of two persons who are equals. The husband is not superior to the wife. Women want a partner who believes in equality. They want a person who values their opinions, and not put them down. They want a best friend, not a dictator.

A good marital relationship exists if the couple celebrates its success together.

8. Sexual satisfaction:

Sex is as important to women as it is for men. They love to have a man who is sexually active and gives them the pleasure of mating. Trust us, she can’t take hands off you. An active sex life keeps the spark alive in a marriage.

9. A shoulder to cry on:

No matter how mature the woman is, during the time of despair she wants a shoulder to cry on. She expects her life partner to empathize with her, understand her and tell her he is there for her.

10. Understanding and forgiveness:

To err is human. But to forgive is divine. Learn to forgive your wife if she has been hurtful with her words, or did something that she should not have done. When she tries to explain her version, understand her perspective, and that will help you forgive her wholeheartedly. Forgiveness will make you magnanimous.

11. A husband who supports her with a “yes”

Are you a ‘yes-man’ or a ‘no-man’? Being a yes-man does not mean that you agree with everything your wife says. It means being positive. If you keep saying ‘no’ to everything that your wife or kids ask for, they stop asking you for anything. Instead, they do things clandestinely, which could be dangerous for them. Encourage your wife with a yes, and you would become her confidante.

The most important thing that women want in a relationship is happiness. If a man can truly care and love his wife, they can live ‘happily ever after’.
But for such a dreamy relationship, a man needs to fulfill a number of expectations his wife has on him. Who said being a husband is easy, anyway?

12. Handles her tantrums:

Your woman can throw tantrums just like a kid does. She might have crazy mood swings and you would not know what she is upset about. You buy her a red dress thinking that it is her favorite color, but she might simply snub you for buying red and not pink!

Do not get irritated as you will soon understand that she is taking liberties with you because she sees you as her own, you are the closest person to her, and the one who can take her tantrums.

Face her with calmness. Let her frustrating phase pass on before you explain your side of things. The atmosphere at home is peaceful that way.

13. Gets excited about holidays:

Don’t wait until your wife asks you to take on a holiday. Be excited about going to various places with her. You will get to break the monotony and spend some private time with her when you are on holiday. Also, choose places where your smartphone is not smart enough to keep you in touch with your social media friends. This means you are all hers. The sweet memories will be there with you forever.

14. Never checks her phone or emails:

You won’t like it if your wife reads the messages on your Whatsapp or checks your emails. It is the same with her. Do not breach her privacy out of your curiosity to know her friends. Respect her privacy, and she will respect yours.

15. Loves her family:

Embrace her family as you want her to embrace yours. Appreciate the fact that she had grown up, got educated and learned things when she was with her parents. They will always be important for her, and you need to recognize that.

16. Watches TV with her:

It might seem silly, but try doing and you will love it. Watch TV with your wife when the kids are away or sleeping. It is one romantic way to unwind with her. Laugh together, cry together or get scared together, what matters is your togetherness and not what you watch on the TV.

Let her know that she is a good cook. Tell her about your favorite dishes and why you like them. She will be glad to cook for you. Appreciate her effort when she tries to cook something new for you. That will encourage her to perform better.

18. Loyalty- Is honest with her?

A woman cannot accept infidelity or dishonesty in her relationship. She desires a partner who is truthful so that she can stay secure and relaxed. If you are dishonest, even occasionally, you will lose her trust, and she will begin suspecting you even for the right things you do.

17. Expresses his love for her:

You need not keep saying ‘I love you’ day in and day out like a routine. But you can express your love regularly. Those three words will continue to do their magic even after 25 years of your marriage. It gives your wife the confidence that she has chosen a man who is true to her, and will treat her like a queen.

Women may or may not dream of a knight in shining armor, but they definitely want a husband who will treat her like a queen. They aspire for a man who is in love with her even after they spend decades of their life together.

How Intimacy Can Improve With Your Partner

A strong relationship is what most of us crave for. To have a sense of belonging and to have a person right by our side through happiness, grief, success, and failure. The secret to a healthy relationship is to have intimacy with your partner. We agree that there are certainly other things like passion, trust, etc. but intimacy rates the highest according to most psychologists.

Intimacy is when the other person knows you completely, inside out and truly loves you for who you are. He accepts you despite all the flaws and is ready to share your weirdest, wildest dreams with you. The only way to achieve this is by being brutally honest with each other. The more you know about each other, the deeper the intimacy level would be.

Intimacy in a relationship makes you feel comfortable and at home in the presence of your partner. You feel truly relaxed around each other and crave each other when you are away. Intimacy is how you can take your relationship to a whole new level.

If you are thinking about how to improve intimacy with your husband, don’t worry we have got you covered. We have compiled a list of things that increase the intimacy level between couples. This has surely helped a lot of couples before and would definitely help you too. Let’s begin!

1. Open up to get closer

Intimacy is an ongoing process of discovering new things about each other. It is quite normal that as time passes the urge to discover new things about each other slows down, consciously or subconsciously. People who tend to open up easily have shown a tremendous amount of commitment in their relationships. Those who have trouble opening up to their partners face difficulty in maintaining their relationships.

2. Make emotional conversations

Emotional conversations bring people closest. When you share your day, your thoughts, and feeling with your partner and he understands. This is the best feeling in the world. This is one of the best ways how to improve intimacy with your partner.

3. Try something new

Ritualistic and mundane behavior can make things boring. When you try something new for instance, taking a vacation you always wanted, gets you closer. When you start planning things together like you are in sync to get things done. Small things like this have made some massive changes in relationships.

4. Enjoy your routine

Yes, we know we just said to try something new but when you can have fun even with the same everyday chores and work that’s when intimacy kicks in. When things are new, and we are getting to know the other person; our emotions are intense. Eventually, with time, our actions become more and more predictable to each other. Mostly, people may view this as a negative thing, but it’s really not because predictability leads to intimacy. When we complete each other’s sentences when there is comfort in silence that’s the true meaning of intimacy. Try reach here, and this is how to improve intimacy with your partner.

5. Walking away shouldn’t be an option

One of the root cause of divorce and broken relationships is lack of communication. If you are having an argument or you are in a fight with your partner: DO NOT WALK AWAY. Silent treatment always messes things up. It makes it difficult for the both of you to face each other, and that should never be the case. Whenever things get a little heated up talk and don’t walk away. You can scream and get loud, but whatever is troubling you inside say it. Conversing and putting the anger out there is definitely better than staying quiet.

6. You shouldn’t have any secrets between you

One of the solid ways to how to improve intimacy with your husband is a no secret policy. I agree that space is necessary, and everyone needs a little ‘me time’ but make sure that space isn’t too much to handle. When there are secrets in a relationships things, tend to get complicated. Talk to him no matter how dirty a situation might be. Make him understand so he can be there for you. Comfort level always increases with verbal sharing, and we cannot stress this anymore. Non-judgmental conversations are absolutely pivotal.

Each relationship and marriage is special on their own. No one is perfect, and everyone tends to go through some ups and downs in life. It is the determination and commitment you have towards each other that allows the relationship to grow and prosper. Respect and accept each other because that’s the best way how to improve intimacy with your husband.

Types of Abuses In Intimate Relationships & How to Avoid Them

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The term “intimate relationships” is used here to be maximally inclusive of any romantic and/or sexual relationship between two non-biologically-related people, including dating or courtship relationships, relationships in which the romantic partners live together in the same household (cohabiting), relationships in which two people have children in common but are no longer formally romantically or sexually involved with one another, and marital relationships. Ideally such relationships are loving and supportive, protective of and safe for each member of the couple. Unfortunately, some people, while fulfilling these nurturing, positive needs of their partners at least some of the time and at least early in their relationship’s development, also behave abusively, causing their partners and often others as well substantial emotional and/or physical pain and injury. In extreme cases, abusive behavior ends in the death of one or both partners, and, sometimes, other people as well. Non-lethal abuse may end when a relationship ends. Frequently, however, abuse continues or worsens once a relationship is over. This can happen whether the relationship is ended by just one of the partners or, seemingly, by mutual consent.

There are several types of abuse that occur in intimate romantic relationships. It is frequently the case that two or more types of abuse are present in the same relationship. Emotional abuse often precedes, occurs with, and sometimes follows physical or sexual abuse in relationships. Sexual and non-sexual physical abuse also co-occur in many abusive relationships, and, as with emotional abuse, sexual and non-sexual abuse often are combined elements of a single abusive incident.

Emotional Abuse also called psychological abuse or aggression, verbal abuse or aggression, symbolic abuse or aggression, and nonphysical abuse or aggression. Psychological and emotional abuse has been variously characterized as “the use of verbal and nonverbal acts which symbolically hurt the other or the use of threats to hurt the other” (Straus, 1979, p. 77); “behaviors that can be used to terrorize the victim that do not involve the use of physical force” (Shepard & Campbell, 1992, p. 291); the “direct infliction of mental harm” and “threats or limits to the victim’s well-being” (Gondolf, 1987), and ” an ongoing process in which one individual systematically diminishes and destroys the inner self of another. The essential ideas, feelings, perceptions, and personality characteristics of the victim are constantly belittled.” (Loring, 1994, p. 1).

Psychological and emotional abuse is considered an important form of abuse because many women report that it is as harmful or worse than physical abuse they suffer.

Behaviors regarded as psychologically and emotionally abusive include, but are not limited to:

Yelling.
Insulting the partner.
Swearing at one’s partner or calling him or her names.
Belittling or ridiculing the partner; insulting the partner.
Belittling or berating one’s partner in front of other people.
Putting down the partner’s physical appearance or intellect.
Saying things to upset or frighten one’s partner; acting indifferently to one’s partner’s feelings.
Making one’s partner do humiliating or demeaning things.
Demanding obedience to whims.
Ordering the partner around/treating him or her like a servant.
Becoming angry when chores are not done when wanted or as wanted.
Acting jealous and suspicious of the partner’s friends and social contacts.
Putting down one’s partner’s friends and/or family.
Monitoring the partner’s time and whereabouts.
Monitoring one’s partner’s telephone calls or e-mail contact.
Stomping out of a room during an argument or heated discussion.
Sulking and refusing to talk about an issue.
Making decisions that affect both people or the family without consulting one’s partner or without reaching agreement with one’s partner.
Withholding affection.
Threatening to leave the relationship.
Doing something to spite one’s partner.
Withholding resources such as money.
Refusing to share in housework or childcare.
Restricting the partner’s usage of the telephone and/or car.
Not allowing one’s partner to leave the home alone.
Telling one’s partner his or her feelings are irrational or crazy.
Turning other people against one’s partner.
Blaming the partner for one’s problems and/or one’s violent behavior.
Preventing the partner from working or attending school.
Preventing the partner from socializing with friends and/or seeing his or her family.
Preventing the partner from seeking medical care or other types of help.
Throwing objects (but not at the partner).
Hitting or kicking a wall, furniture, doors, etc.
Shaking a finger or fist at one’s partner.
Making threatening gestures or faces.
Threatening to destroy or destroying personal property belonging to one’s partner.
Threatening to use physical or sexual aggression against one’s partner.
Driving dangerously while one’s partner is in the car as a conscious intentional act to scare or intimidate.
Using the partner’s children to threaten them (e.g., threatening to kidnap).
Threatening violence against the partner’s children, family, friends, or pets.

These examples are based on items from various instruments used to measure emotional aggression in romantic and family dyads.

Economic Abuse: This could be considered a subcategory of emotional abuse since it serves many of the same functions as emotional abuse and has some of the same emotional effects on victims. However, it can be distinguished by its focus on preventing victims from possessing or maintaining any type of financial self-sufficiency or resources and enforcing material dependence of the victim on the abusive partner that is, this behavior is intended to make the victim entirely dependent on the abusive partner to supply basic material needs like food, clothing, and shelter or to supply the means to obtain them. The desire to isolate the victim from other people can be one of the motives for economic abuse as well, however. Behaviors that could lead to the material dependence of a victim of abuse on her or his abuser some of which are already listed under the larger Emotional Abuse category include but are not limited to, when the abusive party:

Makes monetary or investment decisions to which the partner might object that affect both people and/or the family without consulting the partner or without reaching agreement with the partner.
Withholds resources such as money or spends a large share of the family budget on him- or herself leaving little money leftover for purchase of food and payment of bills.
Refuses to share in housework or childcare responsibilities so the partner can work.

Restricts the partner’s usage of the family car or other means of transportation.
Does not allow the partner to leave the home alone.
Prevents or forbids the partner from working or attending school or skills training sessions.
Interferes with work performance through harassing and monitoring activities like frequent telephone calls or visits to the workplace (in the hopes of getting the partner fired, for example).

Social Isolation: This also could be considered a subcategory of emotional abuse since it serves many of the same functions as emotional abuse. It can be distinguished by its focus on interfering with and destroying or impairing the victim’s support network and making the victim entirely or largely dependent on the abusive partner for information, social interaction, and satisfying emotional needs. Socially isolating the victim increases the abuser’s power over the victim, but it also protects the abuser. If the victim does not have contact with other people the perpetrator will not be as likely to have to deal with legal or social consequences for his behavior and the victim will not be as likely to get help, including help that may lead to an end to the relationship. Abusive behaviors that could lead to the social isolation of a victim of abuse (some of which were already listed under the larger Emotional Abuse category above) include:

Acting jealous and suspicious of the partner’s friends and social contacts;
Putting down the partner’s friends and/or family.
Monitoring the partner’s time and whereabouts.
Restricting the partner’s usage of the telephone and/or car; not allowing the partner to leave the home alone.
Preventing the partner from working or attending school.
Acting in ways that are aimed at turning other people against the partner.
Preventing the partner from socializing with friends and/or seeing his or her family.
Preventing the partner from seeking medical care or other types of help; threatening the lives or well-being of others with whom the partner might have contact.

Physical Abuse also called physical aggression or abuse; intimate partner violence or abuse; conjugal, domestic, spousal, or dating or courtship violence or abuse. Physical aggression in the context of intimate relationships has been defined as “an act carried out with the intention, or perceived intention, of causing physical pain or injury to another person” (Straus & Gelles, 1986). This is behavior that is intended, at minimum, to cause temporary physical pain to the victim, and includes relatively “minor” acts like slapping with an open hand and severe acts of violence that lead to injury and/or death. It may occur just once or sporadically and infrequently in a relationship, but in many relationships it is repetitive and chronic, and it escalates in frequency and severity over time.

Physical abuse includes, but is not limited to:

Spitting on.
Slapping or hitting with an open hand.
Spanking (non-playfully).
Scratching.
Pushing; shoving; grabbing.
Arm twisting or bending.
Hair pulling.
Hitting or punching with a fist.
Throwing objects at the partner.
Hitting with hard or sharp objects.
Kicking; biting (non-playfully).
Throwing or body slamming the partner against objects, walls, floors, vehicles, onto the ground, etc.
Pushing or shoving or dragging a partner down stairs or off any raised platform or height.
Cutting; scalding or burning.
Forcing a person out of a moving vehicle.
Holding down or tying up the partner to restrain the partner against his or her will.
Locking a partner in a room, closet, or other enclosed space.
Choking or strangling.
Beating up.
Attempting to drown.
Threatening with a weapon.
Attempting to use a weapon against a partner.
Actually using a weapon against a partner.

Sexual abuse includes behaviors that fall under legal definitions of rape, plus physical assaults to the sexual parts of a person’s body, and making sexual demands with which one’s partner is uncomfortable (Marshall, 1992a; Shepard & Campbell, 1992). It also had been defined as including “sex without consent, sexual assault, rape, sexual control of reproductive rights, and all forms of sexual manipulation carried out by the perpetrator with the intention or perceived intention to cause emotional, sexual, and physical degradation to another person” (Abraham, 1999, p. 592).

Sexual abuse includes, but is not limited to:

Demanding sex when one’s partner is unwilling.
Demanding or coercing the partner to engage in sexual activities with which the partner is uncomfortable.
Coerced penile penetration of any kind (oral, vaginal, or anal).
Physically coerced sexual acts of any kind (e.g., through threats with or use of weapons or threats or use of other means of inflicting bodily harm).
Using an object or fingers on one’s partner in a sexual way against his or her will.
Use of alcohol or drugs on one’s partner to obtain sex when the partner was (and/or would be) unwilling.

Physical attacks against the sexual parts of the partner’s body.
Interference with birth control.
Insistence on risky sexual practices (such as refusal to use a condom when a sexually transmitted disease is a known or suspected risk).
Forced or coerced participation in pornography.
Forced or coerced sexual activity in the presence of others, including children.
Forced or coerced prostitution or non-consensual sexual activity with people other than and/or in addition to the partner.
Forced or coerced sex with animals.
Forced or coerced participation in bondage or other sadomasochistic activities.

Stalking (also known clinically as obsessional following. This type of behavior also can be directed toward people with whom the perpetrator has not been romantically involved and can involve motives other than sexual or “amorous” ones notably anger, hostility, paranoia, and delusion. Stalking has been defined variously as: knowingly and repeatedly following, harassing, or threatening another person. Unsolicited and unwelcome behavior, that is, initiated by the defendant against the complainant, that is, at minimum alarming, annoying, or harassing, and that involves two or more incidents of such behavior. A course of conduct directed at a specific person that involves repeated visual or physical proximity; nonconsensual communication; verbal, written, or implied threats; or a combination thereof that would cause fear in a reasonable person with repeated meaning on two or more occasions, and “the willful, malicious, and repeated following and harassing of another person that threatens his or her safety” and “an abnormal or long term pattern of threat and harassment directed toward a specific individual.

As a form of intimate partner abuse, stalking is frequently associated with separation or the end of a romantic relationship. However, some of the behaviors classified under the emotional abuse, economic abuse, and social isolation categories listed above that occur in both intact and ended relationships qualify as stalking behaviors as well. Walker and Meloy (1998) have suggested that, with regard to intact intimate romantic relationships, stalking is an “extreme form of typical behavior between a couple that has escalated to the point of monitoring, surveillance, and overpossessiveness, and that induces fear. Results from the National Violence Against Women Survey (Tjaden & Thoennes, 1998) indicate that many women who are stalked by intimate partners (36%) are stalked by their partners both during and after their relationships end.

Stalking includes, but is not limited to, behaviors such as:

Secretly following and/or spying on the partner.
Hiring someone else to follow or spy on the partner.
Verbally threatening the partner (implicitly or explicitly) through telephone calls or messages on telephone answering machines, written or electronic correspondence, or in person.
Sending cards, letters, gifts or other packages, etc. to the partner’s home or office or leaving such things at the partner’s home, office or on or in the partner’s vehicle inappropriately i.e.,
inappropriately given the status of the relationship).
Appearing in places the partner frequents and waiting for the partner to catch a glimpse of him or her.
Threatening to damage or destroy the partner’s personal property.
Damaging or destroying the partner’s personal property.
Stealing from the partner.
Accosting the partner or someone close to the partner.

How a Sexy Girl Can Get a Handsome Boyfriend

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Figuring out how to get a boyfriend isn’t a joke anymore.

If you’re wondering how to get a boyfriend, well, that’s the easy part. Getting a boyfriend is easy, but getting the guy you desire is the difficult part. Want to know how to get any guy you like to ask you out?

A good decade ago, it was only the kids and preteens that wondered about this question.

But now, just about every girl wants to know how to get a boyfriend who will respect her and love her for who she is.

After all, we aren’t speaking of just about any boyfriend.

We’re talking about an absolutely great guy who likes a girl for who she is, and a guy who’s going to be there by her side through thick and thin.

How to get a boyfriend who’s all that

You may have found the perfect guy in the world, and you may be wondering how to tell him that you like him. Or perhaps, you may be completely clueless and waiting for someone to approach you and ask you out.

Either ways, if you’re interested in knowing how to get a boyfriend, you need to know how to become irresistible to guys in the first place.

How to be an irresistible girl

Quite frankly, the problem isn’t with guys or girls here. Knowing how to get a boyfriend is all about knowing how to be the irresistible girl who can be desired by guys.

Here are five tips that can change the way guys see you, and make you irresistible.

#1 A strong personality

You wouldn’t like a guy who doesn’t have a personality. So why would a great guy like you if you don’t have it either. Now if you really want to know how to get a boyfriend who’s fancied by all girls and admired by all guys, you need to build yourself a personality.

You need to be cheerful and nice, but at the same time, you need to create an aura of confidence around yourself. Don’t be the clown or someone who can be pushed around easily by everyone. You need to be confident and carry yourself with grace and panache. Be likeable, but yet, be someone who’s taken seriously.

#2 Appear unavailable even if you’re single

No guy desires a girl who’s easily available. Play hard to get. Talk to boys but keep them at a distance. Don’t be a pushover and don’t let anyone take you for granted. Never run errands for guys. Learn to be unpredictable when you’re talking to guys. And at times, even fussy and moody. As much as guys say they want a girl who can get along, they still want a fussy princess.

After all, Archie still runs behind Veronica rather than Betty. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it? You know the rules of playing hard to get, so play them and play them well.

#3 Groom yourself

Now good looks are an added advantage if you want to know how to get a boyfriend. But the real key to getting a great boyfriend is not good looks, but knowing how to look good.

Most of the glamorous celebrities and models don’t really have the prettiest faces or bodies, but it’s the way they carry themselves and groom themselves that makes them look so stunning. Katy Perry and Lady Gaga may not be the prettiest women without their makeup and their attitude. But any guy would love to date them or go out with them.

Stop focusing on your flaws and pay attention to what’s good in you. And before you know it, you can dazzle any guy with your poise, confidence and the way you carry yourself.

#4 Send out the right signals

Do you like a guy? Then send out the right signals only to him. Look at him now and then, and let him notice that. Blush a bit, flutter your eyelashes or run your hands through your hair coyly, just above your ears. But never overdo it and make yourself seem like a stalker. Stare at the guy you like for a few seconds and snub him for a couple of days. Make him want you, and never let him know that you want him.

Let him crave for your attention and make him come to you. The secret behind knowing how to get a boyfriend all girls desire is to draw him and confuse him, and never letting him know he’s got the upper hand in the flirty game. Never make it obvious by telling all your friends and giggling like he’s your teenage crush! Stare at him deeply now and then, and ignore him for a few days. You hold the reins in this game, and he’ll come begging to you in no time.

#5 Learn to be sweet where it matters

Once you have his attention, make him come to you. Smile at him when you’re at the other end of the hall, but ignore him when he’s close by. That would confuse him, and yet, make him crazy about you.

Don’t flirt with too many guys, assuming it would make him jealous. It could make him think you’re a tramp. You can be rude to any guy though, who tries misbehaving around you or tries to hit on you when the guy you like is around. Snubbing other guys makes the guy you like want you even more.

And when he finally works up the courage to ask you out, be sweet with him. Make him feel special, and let him understand that he’s being treated nicely. Don’t overdo it, but make him feel warm and fuzzy for having a conversation with you. And if he ever talks about you staring at him or smiling at him from across the hall, deny it outright and get fussy.

Never let him know that you accept making the first move. Always make it look like it was him and him alone who made all the moves to talk to you. That’s how you play fussy, sweet and hard to get all at once!

If you just follow these simple moves, not only will you know how to get a boyfriend, you’d also know how to attract the attention of any Handsome guy you like.

So are you looking for love? Look no further.

What Girls Can Do to Make Guys Want them More

Are you wondering how to make him want you more?

Do you want to know how to make him want you all the time? You may be thinking about your man 24/7, but is he doing the same? Learn to mesmerize your man and make him love you and think about you all the time with these simple tips.

The beginning of a new relationship is arguably the best part. The tingly feelings of butterflies that come with a first meeting can never be replicated.

But can you make this last forever? Can you make him love you more with each passing day?

How can you make him think about you all the time?

You may catch his eye, but how can you ensure that he’s hooked to you? How can you make him want you, and love you for who you are?

How to make him want you

Men are essentially more single-minded than women. Let’s just say they don’t see things as we do.

Every situation does not have the typical million alternatives in a man’s life.

For him, not calling simply would mean you’re busy, and he’d never think that you’re not interested.

So your task is to keep him interested, and make him want you.

Your weapons? Self confidence and control. Here is your modus operandi to make him love you more, effortlessly.

SO WHAT CAN YOU DO TO MAKE HIM LOVE YOU MORE

#1 Be busy

Never make it look like you’re sitting by the phone waiting for his call, even if you are. Go out, meet people, start a hobby even if it’s just to get your mind off things.

And make sure he knows your busy bee activities, as not only will it keep him intrigued by you, it will make him feel grateful for getting to spend a little time with you.

#2 Never show that it bothers you

The biggest mistake most women make is to whine, but why didn’t you call me last night, yesterday, every hour? To clobber him with questions is only going to push him away rather than make him love you more. A wistful “but you used to do it before… is even worse.

In the beginning of every relationship, hormones are on overdrive and that would make him want you all the time. And without even realizing it, he would want to spend every waking moment with you. But a relationship, like everything else, is progressive.

So it then goes into the stage where you’re both comfortable with each other, which means you don’t need to call each other every few hours in order to feel loved.

#3 Feel good about yourself

If you’re wondering how to make him want you all the time, wear something you feel desirable in, be it your favorite pair of jeans or a pair of sexy boy shorts. When you feel sexy, it shows! And he’s going to reciprocate the desire.

#4 Pay attention to appearance

As shallow as this sounds, you have to make a first impression or a good series of first impressions. It should be a while before you can let him see you with a bed head and no makeup.

#5 Take initiative

Forget about playing hard to get, take over in the bedroom and otherwise. Just not all the time, unless you want it predictable and yawn-inspiring. If you want to make him want you all the time and make him love you helplessly, you need to keep his interest piqued. So leave him a message commanding him to meet you at your favorite restaurant and plan an evening of fun to follow.

#6 Inflate his ego

This is an obvious one. Turn him on by complimenting him on what he’s wearing and how good he looks, lightly brush against his shoulder as you walk by, and make lots of eye contact and smoldering looks. Knowing that a girl is smoking hot and that she desires him, will only make him want the girl, a.k.a. you, even more.

Remember, a guy may say he wants his space or that he needs to have some guy time without thinking about his girlfriend, but it isn’t always true. You can accept it and move along. Or you can make him want you and be with you without even asking him to do that!

Just let him see that true confident girl that you are, and let him know that you don’t really need him around all the time too.

If you follow these tips, you won’t be wondering how to make him want you or make him love you, you’ll make him beg to be around you all the time!

The #1 Thing You’ll Notice, If Your Partner Is Falling Out Of Love

All relationships have natural ebbs and flows. No matter how long you’ve been seeing someone, having little arguments here and there or taking a break from the sexy stuff can sometimes be super healthy. But if you’ve been feeling a little disconnected from you boo for a while or if the fights seem more frequent, you may be wondering if your partner is falling out of love with you. “Sometimes it’s difficult to tell if you are having a tough time in a relationship, if you are experiencing significant problems, if you really are questioning how well it is working versus actually falling out of love,” Dr. Joshua Klapow, clinical psychologist and host of The Kurre and Klapow Show, tells Elite Daily. “Love can be lost and found. It can fade and come back, it can be ‘fixed’ but because love is a feeling, it is not a guarantee that love lost will return.”

If your partner is going through a hard time at school or work, or if your relationship is going through some changes, its natural for the gooey affectionate side of things to slow down a little. You may feel frustrated that your partner made a big decision without you or unappreciated for all your contributions in your relationship. It’s easy to assume the worst, but according to Dr. Klapow, having problems in your relationship doesn’t mean falling out of love. “We can be angry, frustrated, irritated, hurt, annoyed with our partner — we can look at the relationship and say it is not healthy, not working well, and destructive and still be in love,” Dr. Klapow says. “Your relationship is salvageable if and only if the distance between the two of you is not too great and there is a desire to be close again.”

It’s not always easy to unpack whether or not you are falling out of love or just going through a rough patch. If you’ve been fighting a lot or are just generally feeling distant from your boo, falling out of love could be the result of a loss of connection. “When we fall out of love, we lose a deeper feeling of connection with our partner,” Dr. Klapow says. “Falling out of love is losing that almost indescribable feeling of wanting to be with your partner for the long run no matter how much of a disaster or how perfect things are in the moment.”

If you’re concerned that your partner is falling out of love with you, Dr. Klapow shares some behaviors to look out for. “When it moves from ‘I don’t like what you are doing’ to ‘I don’t like you.’ They go from being emotionally connected to emotionally ‘neutral.’ They ask you to change the way you eat, talk, interact, spend time, look. They seem to schedule their life differently,” Dr. Klapow says. “Growing distant is a major relationship red flag.” Of course, every relationship is different, and your partner exhibiting some or all of these behaviors doesn’t necessary mean they’re falling out of love. Long-term romantic relationships are hard. And with school work, family, and general life to deal with — it’s completely natural for schedules to shift around, personal preferences to evolve, or even for feelings to change overtime.

If you’re starting to sense some disconnect in your relationship, or you’re starting to worry that your partner is falling out of love with you, it’s important to directly communicate how you are feeling and where you are coming from before guessing what they are feeling. “Don’t assume that the distance can only be that they are falling out of love,” Dr. Klapow says. “But don’t assume that everything is fine. Remember that your partner’s personal issues, your own issues and the relationship itself all drive the emotional setting.” If your partner seems to be pulling away, or if they’ve been more emotionally neutral — checking in with where their head is at can help you communicate openly, before assuming how they are feeling.

If you’re worried that your partner may be falling out of love with you, and you want to make the relationship work, it can be helpful to express to them how much you love them. “Ask what is going on, and express your desire to make things better,” Dr. Klapow says. “Don’t be defensive. Don’t argue. Just listen.” Giving your parter the chance to express themselves in a low-key and supportive way may enable them to open up about where their head is at. “You may find that what you are hearing is a combination of you, them and their relationship itself,” Dr. Klapow says. “Ultimately, it is your choice to pull the plug or not — but don’t decide until you have tried to work it out or have tried with professional support.” Getting everything out in the open can help you and your partner better understand what you need from each other and where your relationship is going, moving forward.

If you’re worried your partner is falling out of love with you, you may be noticing them pulling away or not being as emotionally engaged with your relationship. Before assuming their thoughts or feelings, openly discuss where you both are coming from and what support you both need. Love changes and flows, but opening up a conversation can keep everyone feeling supported and heard.

Knowing how to talk to a guy can be the difference between being a lady who draws guys and an annoying girl who doesn’t get any attention.

Want to know how to talk to a guy and make him like you? Most girls wonder what to say to a guy in a conversation, but there’s a lot more than just words that matter when you want him to like you back.

Now you don’t really need to know how to talk to a guy only to impress one guy.

Really, making a guy like you isn’t just about impressing one single guy.

After all, every guy likes a girl who is popular, fun and desired by all guys.

So if you really want to make a guy like you and become popular, you need to know these ten facts.

How to talk to a guy

The next time you talk to a guy you like, use these ten tips.

And we can guarantee you, these tips will make you more desirable than you can ever imagine!

If you’re wondering how to talk to a guy or what to talk to him, no, you don’t really need to change your conversations for him.

Guys like all girls, but they like a few girls a lot more.

And guys like these girls more because they make the guy feel special. Learn how to talk to a guy and make him like you and you’ll see the difference.

Smile often

The next time you’re talking to a guy you like, smile more often. Giggle at his jokes, smile now and then for no particular reason and bring that sparkle in your eyes. After all, when you’re happy, it shows. And no guy can resist a girl with a beautiful laugh!

Be coy and graceful

Through the ages, women have loved chivalrous men, and men have loved graceful, coy women. Now, there’s a big difference between being a shy timid girl and a girl who’s coy. Even to this day, guys love coy, graceful girls. So be that one. Twiddle your hair when you’re being thoughtful, have your own cute expressions, bat your twice instead of just once every time you close your eyes.

All these make you very lovable and aww-sho-cute! Learn to be a lady, and the guys will love to become your knight in shining armor.

Touch him

Men have always been drawn to the gentle, tender touch of a girl. Even scientific research has shown that guys involuntarily start showing more interest and flirt more with girls who touch them in the middle of a conversation. Occasionally, touch his forearm or place your palm on the edge of his shoulder, or any other place that would be appropriate for casual touches, and you’ll see how his interest in you would grow in no time.

Seek his protection

Throughout evolution, men have always been the hunters and the protectors while women have been the farmers and the foragers. When you rekindle this primal instinct in a guy, he would appreciate it and love it. Reach out and hold his arm while crossing the street, smile shyly and ask him if he can hold a heavy book for a minute, hold his hand as a big, scary dog comes near you, etc. You know the works, make him feel like your protector. And he’ll want to be by your side all the time.

Don’t badmouth or bitch

Girls who are use foul language all the time are quite a bit of a turn off for most guys. Now if you’re Debra Morgan, that’s a whole new story because she knows how to be vulnerable, cry and be strong and independent at the same time. But for all other girls, try to avoid using bad language all the time. Additionally, don’t bitch about other girls or speak nastily about coworkers and passersby when you’re walking on a street.

Be mysterious

Guys find mysterious girls a tad annoying, but they can’t help falling in love with them. You don’t need to tell a guy you’re with every single emotion or thought that’s going through you. If you’re looking lost or if he catches you smiling to yourself, and asks you about it, you can just tell him it’s nothing. Don’t reveal everything that goes on in your mind or you’ll just become boring. A note of caution though, you can’t do this to your boyfriend. He’ll think you’re having an affair!

Be mischievous

There’s nothing better than a girl who can be shy and coy, and show off a streak of mischievousness now and then. It’s always nice to lighten things up now and then with a few pranks. You can tease him, nudge him by the shoulder, say a few jokes, or all of the above. Guys like a girl who is all sweet is cute and nice, but it can get pretty boring after a while. Show him your naughty side too.

Be polite

This is one of the qualities of a good natured, sweet girl that all guys want. If you want to know how to talk to a guy, keep this in mind. Be nice, good natured and polite. Mind your P’s and Q’s, and be nice, not just to him, but to the people around you. You can try to be pretentious and fake when you’re with him, but then, it’s not easy. Instead, learn to be a genuinely nice person and it’ll only make him want you more.

Appreciate him

If you use all the tips mentioned here, you’ll be a very likeable girl who’ll be desired by all guys. And the guy who likes you may try very hard to please you and impress you. And if some guy’s trying to make you feel nice, appreciate the gesture. Most girls take these things for granted, and over time, the guys will stop paying attention to them. Really now, if someone does something nice for you, don’t you think they deserve a thank you, or at least a smile? Never forget that.

Play hard to get

Always play hard to get if you want to make him like you. Knowing how to talk to a guy is easy, but knowing where to draw the line is not. Speak to guys in a pleasant manner, but never let them take you for granted. And don’t ever be easily available. That only makes them take you lightly.

Use these ten tips on how to talk to a guy and make him like you, and you’ll see how likeable and desired you’ll be in no time!

7 Signs to Notice, If Your Relationship Is Suffocating

Romantic relationships can be difficult at times. Occasionally, your relationships might require some mediation, a little bit of trial and error, and a lot of communication to work things out. This especially can be the case after the honeymoon phase, or as you and your partner face life changes. However, romantic relationships shouldn’t feel like a burden or heavy obligation. And you definitely shouldn’t feel as if your relationship is suffocating you.

In practice, a suffocating relationship can take a number of forms. It can be a needy partner who craves your attention, and leaves no room for friends or family. It can be a co-dependent relationship that demands all your time and energy. A stifling relationship can even turn toxic if your partner wants control over every part of your life. No matter how or why your relationship feels suffocating, the end result is this: You might not feel the joy and fulfillment a healthy romantic partnership is supposed to bring.

Here are seven red flags you’ll notice if your relationship is suffocating you — and seven signs it’s time to talk things through with your partner (or, honestly, break up!).

1. YOUR SO TEXTS YOU… NON-STOP

A 2019 study by Typing.com surveyed 1,000 people — women, men, married and unmarried, those in long-distance relationships and not, — about their digital communication habits with their SOs. Among other tidbits, researchers found that about six text messages in a row is the point where most people feel their partner is too “clingy” or “needy.” Whatever that number might be for you, a partner who texts you incessantly might make you feel stifled by the relationship.

As relationship expert Susan Winter put it, “Having someone to check in with throughout the day can feel great, but constantly having your phone bombarded with texts and notifications from your (new) bae can start to feel like a bit much.” Moreover, Winter said, if your partner gets upset any time you want to take space, then that’s reflective of some seriously controlling tendencies.

Your partner might explain away their behavior by saying they’re that they’re worried about you. On the surface, that might seem sweet. But if they’re blowing up your phone — especially in rapid succession and throwing a fit if you don’t respond — this can actually be manipulation. “This is to substantiate their position, making emotional manipulation look like affection. Don’t fall for it,” Winter said. “It’s a ploy for control.”

2. YOUR PARTNER GASLIGHTS YOU

To “gaslight” someone is to “make them doubt that their thoughts, feelings, and actions” to the point where they believe they can’t trust their judgment or that they’re losing their mind,” Dr. Leslie Beth Wish explained to Elite Daily. It’s another tactic a suffocating (or even abusive) partner might use to gain control. This might include your partner flat-out denying saying things you definitely heard them say or denying doing things you definitely saw them do.

A partnership where one person gaslights the other can feel suffocating because now, there’s an extra layer to your relationship dynamic (especially when it comes to arguments). If your partner constantly makes you feel irrational, you might start feeling like you’re always the bad guy — and might start believing that about yourself, even if it isn’t true.

3. THEY UNDERMINE YOU

It can feel equally smothering to have a partner who frequently nitpicks and puts you down. Just like with gaslighting, undermining behaviors can do major damage over time. “[Their] feedback, in the beginning, might have just enough ‘truth’ in it that you doubt yourself. Over time, your partner will lie, and tell you that so and so said negative things about your appearance or conversation. Now you have ‘proof’ from another person that you are too stupid, too silly, too shallow, too wrong or too much or too little of something in your behavior or appearance,” Wish said.

Weeks or months of this kind of behavior can chip away at your self-confidence and inner strength, according to Wish. This is, all in all, a toxic situation. Constructive criticism is one thing. Disintegrating your self-worth is another thing entirely.

4. THEY ISOLATE YOU

One classic abusive behavior (that has a suffocating effect) is when your partner starts to isolate you. Your partner might start with putting down your family and friends. By casting your crew as untrustworthy, your partner narrows the scope of your reality and exerts control over you. Isolation tactics can be that subtle or more overt. Ultimately, it can come in the form of guilting you into not attending family functions, or berating you for enjoying wine night with the girls.

As love coach Monica Parikh told Elite Daily, “The goal is to isolate you from your support network, making you an easy target for emotional manipulation and abuse.” It’s overwhelming to be forced to deal with the trials and tribulations life throws at you, without your core support network by your side.

4. YOUR PARTNER NEEDS TO KNOW WHERE YOU, ARE ALL THE TIME

You might be feeling overwhelmed by a clingy partner if, as Winter put it, “you begin to feel like leaving your apartment requires a sign-out sheet.” And, Winter continued, “Your partner’s incessant need to know where you are at all times is a sign of deep insecurity.” It’s just not realistic or healthy to have your partner monitor your whereabouts at all times. It’s important you maintain your autonomy, even if you’re someone’s partner.

5. YOUR SO PUTS YOU OVER THEIR FRIENDS IN AN UNHEALTHY WAY

It’s also unhealthy if your SO is determined for the two of you to spend all of your free time together. This prevents the two of you from having space for yourself or to be with your own friends.

Again, having freedom is so key to not feeling like you’re drowning in a relationship. Kali Rogers, who founded Blush Online Coaching, told Elite Daily, “Having your own autonomy is so critical to not only your overall happiness, but for your relationship’s, as well.”

6. YOUR RELATIONSHIP IS CO-DEPENDENT

There comes a point, too, where your relationship can feel suffocating because the two of you are co-dependent. In co-dependent relationship, there’s one partner who relies heavily on the other and one who’s sense of self is wrapped up in providing for their partner. Psychologist Erika Martinez broke it down like this:

The dependent relies on the codependent to take care of, support, fix, and generally enable [them]. In some cases, the dependent really can’t take care of themselves, and in others, it’s a state of learned helplessness.
The codependent does the enabling and grows accustomed to being the one that people (including the dependent) turn to for help. Thus, codependent’s sense of self-worth and self-esteem are often tied to their ability to fix things, be proactive, help others, people-please, etc.
Being tied to this unhealthy relationship roles can suck the joy out of your partnership.

7. THEY DEMAND TO SEE ALL YOUR DEVICES

Similar to the desire to know where you are at all times, another suffocating relationship behavior is your partner demanding access to all your communication. Yes, transparency about what you’re up to and who you’re talking to is good. But it’s best when that happens in couples willingly and organically.

If your partner is pressed to see what you’re looking at online or who you’re messaging, either one of two things is happening: Trust has been broken or your partner is trying to control you. (Depending on your relationship, the situation could be a bit of both.) Parikh confirmed the latter, saying, “A controlling partner may feel entitled to have access to your email, phone, or internet history.”

WHAT TO DO?

It’s crucial that you and your partner talk things out. If your SO is texting you too much (or throwing a fit when you don’t text back), have a conversation about what kinds of texting or calling is appropriate for your relationship. Talk frankly about self-care and taking time for yourself. Re-establish boundaries. And if you have these hard conversations with your SO to no avail, then these red flags are grounds for breaking up.

Rough patches do happen. But at the same time, your relationship shouldn’t feel like a heavy obligation, or a black hole sucking up all of your happiness and self-esteem. You deserve a partner who’s going to gas you up, be your equal, and nurture your well-being.
