Do you believe stonewalling in relationships is considered a form of abuse?
Stonewalling is the act of emotionally withdrawing from the other, avoiding meaningful conversations and avoiding communication all together.
Yes, it is a form of control , one upmanship and a lack of love and consideration for your needs and wants. It is horrible. It prevents intimacy. It erodes the relationship. It is a destructive way to relate and I still don't know how to deal with it. Do you?
It's not abuse if one decides to move on.
I'm not sure why anyone would choose to stay in a relationship with someone who clearly is not "into them". That's self abuse.
Each of us gets to (choose) our friends, lovers, and spouse.
The goal is to be with someone who shares your same values, wants the same things for the relationship that you do, naturally agrees with you on how to obtain those things, and last but not least have a mutual depth of love and desire for one another.
Compatibility trumps compromise!

Just want to say-love, love the pic..."whyyyyy" (big grin n chuckle)
I totally agree. But it happens. Emotionally withdrawing from the other who is totally unaware of it or the issue is not right. Maybe not the extent of abuse but it's important to discuss. Thank u
