Hey there! Today, we are taking a look at a serious issue in some relationships: Domestic Violence.   
 Topic of the Week: Domestic Violence In Relationships 

If a person has never experienced domestic violence in a relationship then they often will assert that they would NEVER date someone that is abusive. Even though they may not date someone that is violent, many women (and men) find themselves slowly but surely lulled into a violent relationship before they know it! 

Predators. Yes, predators are what I call them. Predators will not announce that they are violent at the gate. They are not stupid. Usually, they appear as prince (princess) charming. They know what to say and when to say it to make their person feel as if they are the best thing ever. They can do no wrong. Slowly and methodically, they start to isolate their partner from family and friends once they know that he or she is in love with them. Once the isolation occurs, which could include a move, then the gloves come off. Or rather, the boxing gloves are put on. The violence begins…..

I gave you a quick and dirty summary of the process that leads to domestic violence in most relationships. Check out my Youtube video linked below to find out more about what happens during the “grooming process” when dating an abusive man or woman.
