Unfortunately, a lot of people get stuck in toxic relationships without even realizing it. Only when they finally break up, they see that their partner was abusing them emotionally. If you don’t want to find yourself in this scenario, there are some signs that will help you open your eyes. Therefore, read this list before you start dating someone you met via free personals and you can save yourself a lot of trouble.
Justifying your fighting
Every couple fights once in a while, but if you are constantly at each other’s throats, something is clearly wrong. The situation gets even worse when you try to justify your behavior by saying things like ‘True love is never easy’. It is not true love, it is BS.
You cannot function independently
Since the beginning of your relationship you have been doing everything together, and now your partner freaks out whenever you want to do something on your own. If he throws a tantrum every time you want to go out with your friends or take a trip without him, you are stuck in a toxic relationship with a codependent partner. Get out of it as soon as you can.
Trashing you behind your back
When you are together, your partner is all happy and cheerful, but as soon as you leave he starts saying the worst things imaginable behind your back. Okay, this scenario usually occurs in dead-end marriages when couples stay together because of the kids, but it doesn’t hurt to know these things even if you are at the beginning of a relationship.
Is your partner constantly reading texts on your phone, going through your emails or asking for your Facebook password? If this is the case, pack your bags and move on. Not only this is disrespectful, but also a clear sign that your partner doesn’t trust you and is looking for something he can hold over your head.
You are not his priority
It doesn’t literally mean that they will spend less and less time with you. Quite the contrary, you could be spending a lot of time together, it’s just that they will probably pay more attention to their laptop or phone. They could also seem absent and distant. That is a major red flag you shouldn’t ignore.
