DV 101 Part 1

Knight in Shining Armor ActMale Abusers initially come off as charming men who make their victims feel like they have just met a true knight in shining armor. They sweep their victims off their feet with exaggerated acts of kindness, words of love and adoration very early on, claiming they ‘love’ you after merely weeks. They verbally mirror most everything you hold dear in your life; your values, faith and family ideals. You are then pressed for a commitment to live with or marry them after only a few months. Once you agree, that is when your knight disappears.
