Questions to ask yourself: What are you waiting for? Why are you allowing his negativity to bring you down?
Do you feel sorry for him and want to “fix” his life? He tells you to wear his favorite color or certain types of clothing when going out on a date (or he buys you clothes to wear.) He tells you how and when to do everything.
Questions to ask yourself: What are they seeing – and what should I look out for? Consider everything and make a list of what you will and will not tolerate in a relationship along with red flags that could point to him being like your ex.This is something to keep in mind because situations could arise when you feel that you are of less importance.These issues could also lead to less privacy in the relationship.Remember that even though he may be relieved, small things could still easily annoy him.However, if the man you are dating is sad, upset or talks less, then you should not compare him with the abusive men, as many people having undergone a divorce find it difficult to live life with full joy and enjoyment immediately.
