Warning Signs

Is your relationship abusive?

Take this quiz to see if your relationship is as healthy as you deserve it to be.

Does my boyfriend or girlfriend:

  • Get extremely jealous or possessive?
  • Accuse me of flirting or cheating?
  • Constantly check up on me or make me check in?
  • Tell me how to dress or how much makeup to wear?
  • Try to control what I do and who I see?
  • Try to keep me from seeing or talking to my family and friends?
  • Have big mood swings-- being angry and yelling at me one minute, and the next minute being sweet and apologetic?
  • Make me feel nervous or like I'm "walking on eggshells"?
  • Put me down or criticize me and make me feel like I can't do anything right or that no one else would want me?
  • Threaten to hurt me?
  • Threaten to hurt my friends or family?
  • Threaten to commit suicide or hurt him or herself because of me?
  • Threaten to hurt my pets or destroy my things?
  • Yell, grab, push, shove, shake, punch, slap, hold me down, throw things, or hurt me in any way?
  • Break things or throw things when we argue?
  • Pressure me or force me into having sex or going further than I want?
