5 Warning Signs That Your Boyfriend is a Control Freak
Showing love and being possessive are very closely related. Possessiveness is cute at times but when it goes overboard, it turns a relationship into something ugly.
The normal over protective attitude of your boyfriend might seem sweet to you but beware, this can turn into something far beyond repair. I don’t always blame guys for it because many girls spoil their boyfriends.
Stop your boyfriend’s controlling attitude if you want to stay happy.
1. He doesn’t like your guy friends
When a guy is being controlling, he’ll start to ask details about all of your guy friends. He’ll tell you that your friends are freaks and bad company.
He’ll be angry at you if you hang out with them. All of these are signs that his cute possessiveness is turning into an awful controlling behavior.
2. Only his choice will matter
I want you to buy this dress, I like long dresses on you, I don’t like where you are working etc. If he has started to put his choice first then know that he is trying to control you in a nice way.
You might feel good at first but then you start to notice that he is trying to control your every move. You are a smart woman and you don’t need someone telling you what to wear and where to go.
You can make your own decisions and a relationship should not suffocate people. It should allow them to be happy in their own way. In such scenarios you should not surrender and listen to what he says.
Take control and speak for your right. If you will show up as weak, he’ll take advantage of you.
3. Jealousy is the root of all evil
This quote is not random, it is very true. When jealousy comes between relationships, it takes away everything with it. If you start to notice that he is getting extremely jealous of your guy friends and co-workers then take a second to analyze the situation. Try to tell him that this attitude is not cool.
4. You feel caged
The biggest sign of a controlling boyfriend is that you start to feel caged and controlled. You lose your freedom and you are not able to do anything on your own.
You’ll be doing things that he likes and you will need his permission to do anything. This is not a good sign. You start to feel dependent on him and this hurts your self esteem very badly.
5. Handling him rightly
If you notice these signs in your boyfriend than know that is trying to control you. You can either help yourself or worsen the situation. Maintain your calm and try to talk things out with him.
Anger and fights are not always the solution. Make him understand your needs and handle the situation with love. If you’ll flip into a frustrated woman, it’ll only damage your relationship.
The worst thing about controlling is that you don’t realize it until it goes overboard. It’s sweet and cute for your guy to be possessive and protective but controlling you emotionally is worst than physical control because it puts a person in a state of confusion.
