WARNING SIGNS OF DATING VIOLENCE
Often there are warning signs present early on in a relationship that can alert you to the fact that the relationship could become abusive. The signs are usually there but often people mistake or confuse them believing they are just romantic or they are concerned about you. You may not have had too many relationships to compare this one to so the only thing you can rely on are your own feelings and learning to recognise warning signs to protect yourself from violence or abuse in the future.
For example, when you first start dating someone it can be a bit confusing if your date starts to act very jealously. You might even feel flattered that they are that interested in you but, actually, excessive jealousy and controlling behaviour are not signs of affection at all. They are warning signs that you are likely to be in danger in the future. Take notice of the warning signs and protect yourself from dating violence.
