Are some men now getting smart with abusing women without hitting them?

I was briefly stuck for 4 months with a manipulator. He would make me feel like everything was my fault, that I owe him so much and threatened that our relationship would be over if I didn't do as he said.

3 of my friends have shared similar stories. Their bfs either put ultimatums frequently or they felt as if walking on eggshells.

Just like my ex boyfriend, they never hit their gfs either but it was enough to bring tear on us often, make us stress out and feel miserable.
