When you’re in love, most people don’t pay attention to or recognize key red flags that are present at the start of the relationship. Thus, I’ve listed below some traits of a controlling partner.

Belittle You Often

  • Your partner should be building you up and offering words of encouragement when needed. Yet, a controlling partner often does the opposite by trying to tear you down and belittling you.

Try To Isolate You From Friends/Family

  • A controlling partner will try and isolate you by making you feel guilty, along with texting and calling constantly with accusations whenever you do hang out with friends and family, so you’ll eventually end up not going out without them just to keep the peace.

What are some other traits you feel of a controlling partner and why?

  1. Absolutely the truth. In my case it started out slow with what I thought was minor questions in the end he became verbally and mentally abusive. I was happy that I had a support system and i was able to leave and rebuild my life..

    1. I’m glad you had a good support system and able to leave that situation. Also, it always says a lot about another person insecurities when they got to try and put someone else down always.

  2. Where there’s control and dominance, there’s less room for love and understanding and a relationship like that should better come to an end….afterall it’s not fair for just one side to make all the compromises.

    1. You are so correct… However, controlling people usually seek out easy going partners that won’t give hardly, if any push back to them.
