I’M a 24-year-old woman with a son from a previous relationship.

I’ve been dating a guy who has been great toward me, but recently he lost his job and I’m the one who has had to provide. I don’t mind.

When I come home a little late he checks my underwear. He gets verbally aggressive and blames me for his actions.

I’m worried that he may become physically abusive. What are the signs of an abusive partner?

Dear Girl

Some men measure their value and esteem by their ability to provide, and when they are unable to it can be a challenge.

Abusers are charming at the beginning. Signs of a toxic relationship get revealed when a person becomes controlling and aggressive.

It’s easy to be trapped in such a relationship as you hold on to the positive things shared.

If your instincts tell you that you should be worried, make a decision before it’s too late.
