Yes. Love does not ever cause physical pain. Abuse is a control issue, not a love matter. even if the abuser gets treatment, it can be a progressive disease. Nobody deserves to be abused and nobody should stay in an abusive relationship. Love cannot heal this problem.AnswerIt is a guarantee, not a sign. This man is setting up the stage to abuse you. Right now hes trying to decide which routes to take and how to go about getting control over you. I suggest you don't wait around until you know for sure. Your gut feeling wouldn't lie to you.
Aproach-avoidance in itself is not abusive conduct. It is up to you to disengage and end the "relationship". No, I don't think it's abuse...He's just not really into you. He is trying to let you down easy. I don't know if it is a sign of abuse. Sometimes that's kind of behavior is a fairly normal range defence mechanism, but if you are uncomfortable with a behavior so early in a relationship it may be time to reconsider whether there will ever be a second date?
The way you ask the question, you seem to imply that there are required feelings, feelings that you are supposed to have. That is not the case. People are very complicated, and everyone is different. Do you want to continue the relationship? Are you getting your emotional needs met in a healthy way? Are you enjoying the companionship and presumably the intimacy that the relationship gives you? The length of the relationship plays an important role as well. Infatuation kicks in early, and can last anywhere from a few weeks to perhaps 3 or more years. The nature of happiness in a relationship will change over that time and beyond. Infatuation may fade, but love and happiness can continue and deepen.
In the beginning of the relationship between the Counselor and Client, Couple, Group, or Family it is the initial exchange among the parties for who is going to control the counseling or therapeutic exchange. Often, very early on, even with the first contact over the telephone or in the waiting room the client(s) will attempt to take control of or "battle" for the nature of the counseling exchange. In general, the client(s) will attempt to dominate the counselor/therapist in an attempt to unconsciously "sabotage" the relationship so they can continue to assert the behavior that they need to address by wresting control from the counselor/therapist. In most cases, if the counselor/therapist doesn't "fight" and win for the manner in which the counseling/therapeutic relationship is to be "structured" or conducted, any further exchanges between the counselor/client will be forfeited in the favor of the client. This process then allows them to continue their maladaptive behavior because it attenuates the efficacy of the counselor/therapist. If this occurs, it is likely that the counseling/therapeutic relationship will prove to be unsuccessful, unless the counselor/therapist can "take back" dominance or control of the helping relationship.
The midnight sun occurs during mid-summer in the Arctic and the Antarctic. Depending on one's locality in the Arctic, this may happen for several weeks either side of the northern hemisphere summer solstice, which occurs around June 21. The midnight sun may be seen in some places as early as May 20, and continue until as late as July 17. In the Antarctic, the midnight sun also occurs in the weeks before and after the Southern Hemisphere summer solstice, which occurs around December 21.
There is probably psychological abuse going on there which is based on her fear of her partner. She may also have become dependent on her partner (for example, financially or emotionally) for love in the early stages of her relationship. There is also the issue of power which her partner has over her which is why she does not leave. You dont say if they have children in which case there may be all sorts of reasons she justifies herself for staying 'because of the children'.
