Re: [CHAT] White Ribbon Day & healthy relaiontships

@stonepixie thats a great idea! I think when kids see things talked about openly in the media it makes the discussion so much easier for them to ask for help or advice if they need it

Re: [CHAT] White Ribbon Day & healthy relaiontships

@Sophie-RO Oh, schools + unis are a good one! Later in school and at uni is when everyone starts going boy / girl crazy, so I think it'd be such a good time to start developing our relationship and self-care skills.

Re: [CHAT] White Ribbon Day & healthy relaiontships

Really awesome ideas about getting this discussion out into the open guys! 

On the flip side, what are some of the early warning signs of an abusive partner?

For me it started with manipulation.

I deifnitely think a huge warning sign is feeling like you can't talk to your partner about something (including things like their behaviour). Communication is a huge, huge part of a healthy relationship.

  • Wants to know where you are, ALL the time.
  • Jealousy
  • Someone who looses their temper quickly
  • Blames others for their problems
  • Bombards you with txts in a short space of time
  • Spying on you
  • Sabotaging you
  • critises you to the point that you start doubting yourself
  • Making you feel guilty about things.

My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

Re: [CHAT] White Ribbon Day & healthy relaiontships

These things may not be a warning sign on their own, but combined...

- Big romantic gestures at the beginning
- Wanting to quickly commit/INTENSE
- wanting you all to himself/JEALOUS
- Need for constant contact
- sweet and caring/then put you down - a cycle
- Will play the victim

Re: [CHAT] White Ribbon Day & healthy relaiontships

Another big warning sign I've seen in abusive relationships is when the abuser starts to isolate their partner, by doing things like not letting them see/talk to their loved ones or by telling them that other people don't want to be involved with them, which only makes it harder for them to seek help.

@Chessca_H I managed to get out before it got too bad thankfully
