Name-calling in relationship

For the past few months my boyfriend and I have been arguing. We always do, but this has become more serious than usual. Now he is using names like whore and slut. I've asked him to stop, but he won't. Lately when we have intercourse, he tells me I feel wider inside, and other times tighter. He thinks I'm using something or cheating. I don't know how to tell him that I'm telling him the truth. Except saying just that. Please help me know what is wrong with me.

Ugh, men...
by: Anonymous

This may not be the case for you but I have noticed that in a lot of relationships when a man acts that way it is because he either A) Is an asshole, B) Has for some reason or another (not necessarily even because of something you have done) lost respect for you, or C) He is guilty about some of his own actions.

Does it ever feel like he is trying to cage you by breaking down your self-esteem? You need to make sure that NEVER happens because the mental abuse is so incredibly hard to break free from and it is hard to reverse.

Just be aware that he clearly is not innocent and could have that sick ulterior motive. Sometimes they get this idea in their head that if they are being a man-whore, their significant other is probably behaving the same. Just some things to take into consideration...

Name-calling or facts?
by: Adrianna

Seems that the words that are used in the name-calling have to do with the fact that you've been with other guys.

Tell him every day that he is the only one you want. If it continues, maybe he is dealing with the past internally and you just need to wait things out.
