If so, what was he/she like when you first met them, and did the emotional abuse escalate to physical abuse? How did you know it was emotional abuse?-signs
Thank you. Please share you experiences.

Yes. She separated from her husband because he was "too controlling." So we started dating and it soon became apparent that she was the one who was the controlling one. I lived in the area for far longer that she did, yet she felt she needed to give me driving directions, even to my own house. She complained because I wouldn't exceed the speed limit, which was really funny when I passed by her one day on the interstate while a cop had stopped her for speeding. He husband found out we were dating and didn't care. I think he was happy to pawn her off onto someone else. She would literally call me 15-20 times a day, every day. She even got fired from her job for making too many personal phone calls. I warned her it would happen but she ignored me. We broke up soon after, but she kept trying to contact me. I came very close to having to obtain a restraining order against her. I found out later that her kids were taken away from her and placed with their grandparents because she tried to strangle her oldest son to death. Bullet dodged. :-/0

Yes, I have been. Things were better when we first got together, but his own mental issues got worse as time went on. I was blamed for many things, put down often, etc... It never hit the physical abuse level thankfully.0
