Domestic violence does not have a type. Perpetrators do not discriminate. People of all races, gender, age, religion, socioeconomic backgrounds are impacted by this spirit breaking, bone crushing and sometimes deadly behavior. There are many indicators the relationship is unhealthy and headed down a destructive path; however, none of that sticks out as problematic. In the scheme of things, it is not a big deal. The idea of a boyfriend is nice. When he becomes possessive of time, isolates her from friends, it feels a bit flattering. Somewhat a barometer of how much he cares.
