The rates of domestic violence between partners is 1.3 million. Sometimes the signs are there but people are blind. Here are four signs how to tell you an abusive relationship:

1) Verbally Abuse. Yelling, screaming, criticizing, curse names. You name it, it's been done. Abuse does not have to be physical. If you are being talked down to than you are being Verbally abuse.

2) Physical Abuse. You and your guy get into an argument and he hits you. It's the first time but it's not going to be the last. Once that hand is laid on you, it will get worse and worse each time. It could put you in a deadly position.

3) Emotional abuse. You are walking on egg shells. You don't feel loved. You are always scared of saying or doing the wrong thing. You have fear of the guy you are with.

4) Mental Abuse. He called you so many names that he is getting into your head. Your self-esteem is at a low. He makes you feel as if his getting mad is your fault. He gets mad at you for the littlest thing.

If you are dealing with someone controlling or someone you are afraid of get out before it is too late. If you don't know who to go to you can call a hotline. Make sure you have a good support system and try to get out early. The more you stay it might be too late.

Don't scream or fight back. The last thing you want to do is make him mad. When you do break up with him make sure you are in a public place where he can't hurt you. Make sure a friend is nearby but don't make it too obvious since you will have someone watching you and you know you are safe. If you break up with him and he threatens to hurt you or himself than go to the police immediately. There are signs of abuse that is not to be overlooked.
