They include Stonewalling and Silence.

Romance Doesn’t Start With Abuse

Your partner dismisses your feelings.

Requests for change fall on deaf ears.

“The pattern is particularly toxic because escalation is built into it — needs unanswered, the person demanding will become increasingly frustrated and usually louder. Of course, this simply means the person withdrawing will increase his efforts. Both parties feel aggrieved and put upon.” — Good Therapy

You feel like you’re talking to a wall.

The silent treatment becomes a part of life.

“Should you attempt to initiate any form of physical contact, with a view to breaking the deadlock, he will reject you. Even superficial actions, such as avoiding eye contact or staring straight through you, are enough to make you feel invisible and insignificant. By resorting to silence and withdrawing from your life, your partner is demonstrating his utmost contempt for you.” — PairedLife

These are just the tip of the iceberg.

Love is not silence, abuse, or a wall.
