Not sure? Well, Dr Kellie is here to help you determine whether your darling sweetie snookums love-muffin might, in fact, be a bit of a psycho. I've compiled a list of handy questions that should make it obvious whether you're in a healthy, sane relationship, or whether you should go running for the hills.
- Does your partner try to control who you see, what you do, how much you spend or what you wear?
- Does you partner ever snap for no reason, then attempt to spin things to make his/her unexplained anger your fault?
- Does your partner suggest or insinuate that you're not attractive/smart/good enough and you're lucky to have him/her?
- Has your partner ever called you up to arrange a lunch date and then orchestrated a fake car accident, putting fake blood all over themselves and hiring actors to play onlookers, cops and emergency workers? Then did they get the fake emergency workers tell you that they died in the crash while they lie in the middle of the road holding your breath? Then did they pop up like the proverbial daisy and propose to you while you're having a nervous breakdown about seeing your partner lying dead in the street?
If you answered yes to any of these you could be in a toxic relationship. If you answered yes to the last one, you're probably that poor girl in Russia whose boyfriend thought that this was the perfect way to pop the question.
When asked why he did it, his reply was "I wanted her to realise how empty her life would be without me and how life would have no meaning without me". Oh yeah, he's a real prince. Sweetie, do you really want to marry the guy who thought that the best way to ask you was to do the melodramatic grown up version of holding his breath until he turns blue?
But whether you think it was a completely manipulative, underhanded and sick way of emotionally blackmailing someone into marrying you or not, it worked. She said yes.
I guess some girls are just attracted to psycho.
