Ladies looking out for yourself is very important as others may not always be there to protect you. The biggest weapon that leaves women trapped in relationships is FEAR. Now this FEAR does not come obout overnight. Overtime an abusive partner will groom you to FEAR him so it is important to recognize signs of intimidation however subtle. If you feel that he will hurt you even if he hasn’t laid a hand on you listen to your intuition and tread carefully. You cannot build a healthy relationship with someone that you are afraid of so if he tries to intimidate you walk away.
