EARLY WARNING SIGNALS:

- You think she's cheating on you all the time and that it wouldn’t happen if she's always with you.

STRONGER WARNING SIGNALS:

EXTREMELY WORRYING SIGNS WHERE:
- You hit her, even though you later regret it.

- She leaves you and you look for her desperately until you find her, even if she’s in another city.
