Amazing Women, Abusive Men l Ep 7
Show Notes

This one goes out to the ladies, who always end up the crazies. Ok, maybe not crazy, but that’s the word that went best with my rap. Seriously though - do you – or your friends – attract intense men? You know the ones that sweep you off your feet and make you feel amazing…until suddenly it does not and everything goes dark? Every woman in the world has the potential to be courted by a man like this. But every woman can also be prepared to look for the signs that something is not right. This next question and answer will help you to do that. Already married and haven’t dated in a decade? Well, have a listen and see if you ever dated a guy like this…

Today’s question is: Dear Aimee Zak,
I know quite a few beautiful and intelligent woman that got sucked into an abusive relationship and are re-building their lives and it seems like nobody really saw it coming. I have joked with them that we needed a class in high school on how to recognize personality disorders. What are the signs, and how can they recognize the signs sooner? 

Red flags. Signs and red flags. They show up, and we miss them until they are slapping us in the face and we find ourselves in an abusive relationship. Education on how to see these signs is serious, so I’m glad you brought it up! As you requested , welcome to your class. Better late than never...
