he acts like we are an old couple that has to stay home all the time...
Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
My boyfriend and I have been together for a little over two years and have lived together for about one year. Ever since we have gotten serious and moved into our place he acts like we are an old couple that has to stay home all the time...I used to hang out with my girl friends everyday and now I get to maybe two or three times a month when he is at work or doing something with his friends. And I have to lie about it and say we are just sitting at someones house or going shopping for it to be ok with him. Then I have to be home before he gets home or he will have an attitude for the rest of the night. I cant even go out at night and hang out with my friends because he thinks that I will do something stupid. And I know I have control over what I do, but I love him a lot and sometimes I feel like it's just easier for me not to do anything because then we get along great and don't argue. I'm just getting really sick of feeling like I am a teenager with a strict dad telling me what I can do and can't.
Show him what you wrote and it will open his eyes very wide.
He won't be happy about the lies, but he brought them on himself.
After reading what you wrote he will have to mend his ways or you two will need to see a counselor to figure out why he is so controlling.
