We all believe that we can spot an abusive person from a mile away. We think that when we see them, we’ll immediately know that we need to stay as far away from them as possible. Although we may believe that, it’s far too easy to be fooled by someone like that.
The only way to be sure that you’re safe from these people is to know exactly what to look out for. Here are 6 types of violent and abusive men you need to stay away from.
1. The Jealous Man
He’s the kind of guy who doesn’t believe a word that his partner says. No matter what they say or do, he doesn’t trust them at all. He truly believes that his significant other is cheating on him and accuses them of it constantly. As well as that, he often doesn’t like his partner to be around other people since he doesn’t trust them either.
2. The Disrespectful Man
This man shares a lot of traits with narcissism. In his mind, he’s superior to everyone else around him and deserves respect and admiration. Despite his need for respect, however, he won’t give it to others. He feels that since other people are lower than him, they’re not deserving of it.
3. The Man With A History of Violence
This is a huge red flag that everyone needs to look out for. Any man who has a history of hurting or abusing anyone is incredibly dangerous. Even if he says that he’s changed or that he would never hurt you, he’s still a potential threat. If he’s done it once already, he has the potential to do it again.
4. The Controlling Man
The issue with this man is how sneaky he is. He won’t start controlling everything that you do immediately, but he’ll start slowly instead. Piece by piece, he’ll start taking control of you and you sometimes may not even see it until it’s too late. By the end of it all, he’ll be completely in charge of what you do, where you go, who you see, and even what you think.
5. The Rude Man
He may come across as just being rude, brash, or brutally honest. However, those are all just words for describing someone who’s verbally and emotionally abusive. Whether he calls you names, insults you, or spreads rumors about you, he’s not a man that can be trusted.
6. The Manipulative Man
This kind of abusive behavior is often the hardest to spot. The man who uses manipulation as his biggest weapon is sly and clever, and will almost always get away with his crimes. He’ll use sneaky tactics such as gaslighting to gain control over you. The worst part is that you probably won’t even know that he’s doing it.
A man who fits any of these 6 categories can completely destroy your mental wellbeing, your confidence, and your life. If you have someone around you who does these things, keep a good distance between you and him. No matter what kind of lies he tells you to make you stay, he’s not looking out for your best interests.
