Is your boyfriend toxic?

Is your boyfriend toxic?

We all know that we should avoid being in a relationship with a toxic person, but how do you know if your boyfriend is toxic? Well here are some signs …

He’s manipulative

Toxic people are unable to deal with the bitter truth. If you are going to blurt out their lies with proof, they will try to change the whole thing with manipulative behavior.


He has no empathy

Toxic people have a problem putting themselves in other’s shoes, so they can’t really empathize with what you may be going through, so why waste your time sharing your problems with someone who doesn’t understand or even care about them in the first place?

He’s a hypocrite

Toxic people have a desire to be respected or adored by others, and they demand fidelity.  The crazy thing is, they have no problem cheating on you and if you catch them, they will try and turn it on you and blame you as if somehow you were at fault.

Emotional Outbursts

Have you ever been with someone who no matter what happens it’s always someone else’s fault? I know I have and the other thing I noticed about that kind of person is their emotional outbursts. If someone goes wrong or a mistake is made they will freak out. They use this kind of emotional abuse as an excuse and a shield.

I’m not saying that only men are toxic – in fact, there are just as many bad girlfriends out there as there are bad boyfriends.  But since this site typically deals with problems with the men in our life, I really just pointed out the thing that toxic men do.

Toxic people (either men or women) are emotional vampires. They seem to suck the life out of you with their negatively.

If you find yourself in a relationship with a toxic person, you need to find a way to move on and remove that person from your life entirely.


Don’t fall for their toxic traps. The only way to be happy is to get a toxic person out of your life. You can’t change them. They will only bring you down.

Do the best thing you can ever do for yourself is to get them out of your life. Surround yourself with positive people and you’ll have a much better life!
