While it is true that there is no such thing as a perfect boyfriend, but you have to be careful with the red flags. You really have to be observant enough because it will create so much negative impact on your life. Being in a toxic relationship will do nothing good to you. Do not tolerate someone who is giving you so much pain. It will only hurt you so much in the end.

Here are Viral Strange’s 10 signs that he is a toxic boyfriend:

1.If he is way too controlling

He does not let you wear whatever you want to wear. He wants you to follow whatever his commands are. Girl, he does not own your body, so do whatever you wanted to do with it. If his toxic masculinity is showing, so you have to cut him off.

2. If he easily gets upset and be enraged when you are in an argument

He cusses you and would easily lose his cool. In the early stage of your relationship, and he is acting such, he will not change for good. Trust me!

3. If he physically and emotionally  abuses you

He resorts to physical violence when he is upset and angry. He chokes and beats you endlessly. He would emotionally blackmail you too. When he does this, you have to report him to the authorities.

4. If he does not respect you or even the people that you love

He tends to humiliate you in front of his friends.  He also  shows tension to your loved ones by provoking them. He cusses them too. If he does not respect your family members, he will also not respect you. If respect is not there in your relationship, then you are in big trouble.

5. If he is overly jealous for no reason at all

He does not like it when you go out with your friends. He makes you feel guilty for going out with them. He is very possessive with you. He is also very manipulative with your emotions.

6. If he is very impatient and does major tantrums

Every time that you buy personal stuff with him, he easily gets irked when he has to wait for you to be done. He would walk out in your face for no clear reason at all.

7. If he is a liar

He always keeps on breaking your trust. He keeps on saying that he will change his ways, but he keeps on doing it repeatedly. His actions are way too different from what he says.

8. If he always compares you with other girls

He wants you to be like the other girls. He knows that you do not like to wear make-up, but he urges you to do it. If he can’t accept you for who you are, then being in a relationship with him is pointless. Why would he be talking about other girls when you are the one with him? Why does he wish you to be someone else?

9. If does not listen and hates being corrected

He is not teachable. He got a huge ego. He would always think that he is the best around. He always makes you feel that his opinion is the only thing that matters.

10. If he always makes you feel less

He doesn’t appreciate your efforts. He doesn’t make you feel growing in your relationship all.

Being in a relationship entails a lot of strength, but you really have to know when to end it. You have to learn how to stand up for yourself because love will never be enough. You have to leave when you are no longer being respected or the people you loved the most.
