I’m not naming names but sudden engagements are doomed to misery.
7. HE WANTS TO START A FAMILY. This is obviously a normal, lovely thing to want, but watch how it’s done. If his goal is to have a family so that you can quit working and stay at home with the baby, in a home far away from where your loved ones are, it could be part of his plan to isolate you and take control of your life: he’ll be controlling your whereabouts, your finances and everything else soon enough.
10. HE TELLS YOU HOW MUCH BETTER YOU ARE THAN OTHER WOMEN. You might see it as a compliment when he says all his exes were psychotic but you’re so much better than them. Hey, maybe you’re the best woman he’s ever met. These can be compliments, but not if he’s showing signs of being sexist and discriminatory. He might say, “Women are so [insert negative adjective here], but you’re not like them.” Um, hello? You’re a woman! It’s damn insulting.
Husband selection is more important than just getting married.
A chimp could get married in Vegas – probably.
I have a pet theory these women become this type after a few years.
The second line is a definite indicator of abuse.
Sometimes handcuffs look like wedding rings, bitches.
12. HE SUGGESTS THINGS “FOR YOUR OWN GOOD.” He cares about you so much that he’ll show you a better way to do your job, speak to your best friend, make a cup of tea and even lose those extra pounds (that you didn’t even notice). It’s not for your own good at all — it’s his way of controlling you. But screw that, you’re a grown woman who can damn well decide what’s best for you.
This isn’t Build-a-Bitch.
If he doesn’t want to marry you, he doesn’t want to marry Y O U.
If you’re really that incompetent, he shouldn’t be attracted.
