This is from a pamphlet from The Aurora Center for Advocacy and Education on the University of Minnesota Campus:
How to Spot a Loser Lover
They come on strong and quickly become jealous.
Professions of love for you early in a relationship and wanting to know where you are at all times are signs of control issues and can be dangerous.
They are completely self-centered.
Partners who ignore your thoughts and opinions will resist equality in relationships.
They don't take responsibility for their behavior.
Parthers who don't see their own errors and flaws will blame you for whatever goes wrong.
Their temper scares you.
Angry, jealous or controling behavior isn't likely to change and will usually get more frightening - or more violent - over time.
Their life hasn't jelled.
Chaotic financial problems, gambling debts, drug or alcohol issues, or histories of losing jobs or having trouble with the law are all signs of risky partners.
They force you to have sex.
No one has the right to make you have sex, regardless of how a partner tries to force or coerce you. Forced sexual contact is sexual assalut and is illegal.
You feel that something is wrong.
If you sense you're in an unhealthy relationship, you're probably right.
