Every single one of those situations is a dead giveaway for an abusive relationship.

Yes. Without a doubt. This is emotional abuse and violent behavior. You are lucky that he hasn’t laid a hand on you, but this is still abuse. This can in fact get worse…

I’m shocked that you even need to ask. Run. Now.

Uh, yes. Every single example. Number four alone would have me calling the police or demanding he speak to a mental health professional immediately. None of this behavior is acceptable on any level.

If not abusive, unstable nonetheless.

Yes. Highly abusive… And scary. Be careful, OP. Regardless if he has laid a finger on you or not, he is clearly mentally unstable.

100% yes.  These are classic abuse signs.  There is a whole lot of abuse that can happen before someone lays a finger on you.  And this will lead to it.  Please leave before that happens.

It makes me lose a bit of faith in humanity that this question needs to be asked.

Definitely in the verge of becoming physically abusive. Run and fast. Not worth it

There are various forms of abuse, and not all are physical.  I would consider all the above described situations abuse.  The remorse he shows after the abuse is very much part of the cycle of abuse.  Sending kind thoughts your way.

Seriously? Anger management issues, threats of violence/death, destroying property, abrupt mood changes, derogatory name calling.

What part of this is not a warning signal? I suggest you seek immediate counselling if you are not ready to leave.

NeedAdviceQuickly:  That person sounds like he has a flaming personality disorder and maybe even a mood disorder. Yes, it is abusive. Has he ever been treated for mental health issues?

That BS with the gun should have gotten the cops called and him pink slipped into a psych unit.
