As in the first warning sign calling names is about control and humiliation.
I give him everything that he needs sexually, emotionally, physically and mentally, but still he flirts with other girls and has sexy conversations with them. You’re making a whole lot of assumptions in your question…Constant criticism will compel the victim to “improve” him/herself. And he denyed until i showed him the pictures i found.After all, if the person who loves you thinks you’re stupid then it must be true. Then name calling came up agaon especially when i found out he was sending flirtatious msgs to girls. Yes, your partner can have his/her own opinions, but when they question your ideas to the point of insult or humiliation, it becomes emotional abuse.It doesn’t matter if the verbal abuse takes place in front of others or not.
