If you meet in public, having lunch in a restaurant, or watching a movie, they will inflict minor teasing sexual acts that might make you uncomfortable, like pinching you in the crotch, nipples etc. however, all these sexual acts are quite normal and even normal couple do all these stuff but only when their partners are comfortable while a sex addict would not even care what you feel or not.



They will dominate you in bed

Usually they have what they want in bed. They will dominate you in bed whether a girl or a guy. They will be charged up, somewhat aggressive (in a way that you will end up getting hurt, physically or emotionally) and frenzied in bed. They won’t even look like themselves while making out.



They have a past

Not always but many of the sex addicts will have a past with a sexual abuse story. They will not openly tell you but they will throw you bits of their sexually abused childhood. Note that not all sexually abused people are sex addicts.
