Take the Abuse Test

Looking for quick clues to determine if you are in an abusive relationship? The signs of an abusive relationship aren’t always obvious. Take the following emotional abuse test to find out.

YES or NO:

  • Do you not see friends because of his/her jealousy?
  • Are you frequently accused of things you haven’t done?
  • Are you constantly blamed for arguments or problems, and is everything said to be your fault?
  • Do you feel like you can’t ever “win” in a situation?
  • Does your partner always want to know what you’re doing and who you are with?
  • Are you constantly criticized about your body or looks?
  • Have you had lies told about you or been humiliated in front of your friends by your partner?
  • Are you told how lucky you are to have him/her, since no one else would ever want you?
  • Does your partner threaten to hurt you or others if you end the relationship?
  • Have you become secretive with or hostile toward your parents because of this relationship?
  • Are you protective of your partner when he/she mistreats you – do you rationalize their behavior?
  • Have you ever been grabbed or shoved by your partner?

If you answered, “YES” to two or more of these questions, it may be time to talk to someone you can trust about your relationship. No one deserves to be abused. Help is free and anonymous.
