A toxic relationship is a nightmare many people experience, and never want to go through again. They can range from outright abuse to controlling behaviors that leave you desperate for freedom again. If you’re concerned about entering into a toxic relationship, here are 10 signs that often appear at the very beginning of toxic relationships.
Sings of toxic relationships:
1. Self-absorbed partner
Your partner always takes from you but never gives back. When it comes down to footing the restaurant bill, you’re always the one reaching for your wallet. When rent time comes around, they ask you for money, but if you’re ever short even $5, they won’t cover you.
It could be they really can’t afford these things, but if it also extends to emotional needs—cuddles and compliments on their terms, but never reciprocated—run away. They aren’t in the relationship to form a bond, but to get as much as they can out of you.
