Here is what I concluded from the SpeakOutLoud list:
He does almost all of the behaviors under these categories:
- One-sided power games
- Mind games
- Emotional unkindness and violation of trust
- Denial, minimizing, blaming
- Domestic slavery
He does about half of the behaviors under these categories:
- Degradation (involving excessive criticism)
- Economic abuse under "she is put in charge of the money" (involving him overspending)
- Separation abuse (involving fear/blackmail)
Plus one or two things in most of the other categories. He has done nothing in the "overprotection and caring" or "physical abuse" lists.
Independent polyperson seeking friendships, in which physical intimacy may or may not develop.
I do not wish to attach to any particular person. My love knows no limits.
