The man I've dated for a month and a half says some things that worry me. I wonder if they indicate the potential for him to become physically abusive. A few examples: his worked schedule changed so he couldn't see me, so he threatened to "tear the room apart" (he didn't, but that struck me as a severe reaction) and he said he can "hold his own" in a fight
(don't know if he's been in one) and he likes to hold me down and be a bit rough during sex sometime (so far it's mild but I wonder what is next). He himself was abused in his last relationship. I also think drinks too much-has shakes in the morning and I suspect he sometimes drinks before he sees me. Otherwise, he is a kind, attentive guy with a successful career. Should I run?

That doesn't seem like an abuser. Some people are more aggressive than others but that doesn't really mean abusive. But if those are dealbreakers FOR YOU, then leave by all means.1
