3. “I tried to learn to play violin and when I’d practice while he was in the room, or apartment, he’d ask me to stop. It wasn’t a huge deal, but he didn’t support me. I want encouragement, not to feel embarrassed for trying something new.” —Leanne, 23

5. “I gained a little bit of weight about 6 months into the relationship, and I noticed he’d make little hints about what I was eating. It wasn’t like I gained 60 pounds, it was probably 5 or 10, but when he’d say things like, ‘Are you really going to eat all that?’ or ‘What did you have for lunch today?’ even if he’s joking, I’m definitely not laughing. Yes, I’m going to eat this entire burger, and yes I’m going to enjoy every minute of it.” —Chelsea, 27

8. “One time he called me ditzy. I am not a ditz. I graduated in the top 10 percent of our class, he wasn’t even in the top 40. That relationship lasted about a month. Don’t call me dumb.” —Chrissy, 23

9. “I love dressing up, and my friends would definitely describe me as trendy, but when I’d wear something a bit out of the ordinary, he’d make me feel stupid for doing it. Little things like ‘Are you going to a skate park?’ (while wearing jeans with holes) EVERYONE wears destroyed denim! Men have it so easy, button downs and pants. So when I try to look cute and he makes me feel anything but, yes, it’s insulting.” —Sierra, 27

11. “My best friend is a guy, and when I hangout with him my boyfriend ALWAYS has something to say about it. He implies that I’m cheating on him without explicitly saying it, and I have never and would never cheat on him. When he makes those comments he’s questioning my integrity. Insulting? Yes.” —Tina, 29

12. “He really doesn’t like my mom. I understand that they don’t have to be best friends, but when he says things like, ‘You’re mom really embarrassed herself tonight.” She’s my MOM! Sometimes she can be crazy, but I love her, and when you insult her you’re insulting me.” —Morgan, 26 TC mark
