    This Is A Reminder That Not All Relationship Abuse Is Obvious

    The #ThatsNotLove campaign aims to show that not all abusive relationships are easily identifiable.

    One Love, an organization dedicated to helping end relationship violence, recently made a new video about the more subtle forms of emotional abuse.

    It starts off normally enough.

    Many times, emotional abuse in a relationship means slow-growing isolation from friends and peers.

    According to One Love's statistics, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will experience relationship violence in their lifetime, and 57% of college students say it's not always easy to identify relationship abuse.
