What Can You Look For?
Some Common Behaviors
- Those who use violence against their partners or sexually assault others seek power and control, not love. Watch for controlling behaviors such as insisting on driving, buying dinner, making decisions, or leading and directing constantly in other ways.
- Drugs and alcohol are often used to make someone unable to resist and to relieve the perpetrator of responsibility for his or her actions. Do not leave your drink unattended and seek help if you feel you might have been drugged.
- Anyone can sexually assault another individual. Most commonly it is someone you know. That person can be a friend or family member who uses the position of trust to his or her advantage.
- Abusers and perpetrators often seek to isolate their victims, both physically and emotionally. They may spread lies and rumors to discredit the victim’s reputation, alienating him or her from friends and family.
- Abusers often take advantage of a lack of knowledge about sexual behavior and what a responsible relationship is. Remember that a healthy relationship is about Respect, Responsibility, and Trust. Not about having power and control over another person.
