The abuser may expects you to be the perfect husband, wife, mother, father, lover, and friend.
He/she is very dependent on you for all his/her needs, and may tell you he/she can fulfil all your needs as lover, friend, and companion.
He/she needs someone desperately, and will pressure you to commit to him/her or make love before you feel the relationship has reached 'that stage'.
He/she may also make you feel guilty for not committing yourself to him/her.
Statements such as 'You make me happy' or 'You make me feel good about myself' are also signs that the abuser feels you are responsible for his sense of well-being.
