15 Signs of a Controlling Boyfriend & How to Deal With a Controlling Relationship
I used to think that was romantic. Why do some guys act like this? They may have been betrayed by a former girlfriend and fear being hurt again. They may have grown up observing relationships where the man held the upper hand by controlling the woman. Relationships built on distrust and control are unhealthy. There are some common signs of a controlling guy.
You and your boyfriend just made things official, but he already wants to spend so much time with you. And he wants to know everything about you. And he wants to make sure you make it home—or even to and from work—safely. Um, if it feels like too much, it probably is. But it's not always easy to distinguish true love from a controlling relationship. In fact, "a lot of signs of a controlling partner can be highly romanticized in the beginning of the relationship," says Heather Lofton , PhD, a therapist at the Family Institute at Northwestern University. So while all those "sweet" moments he spends concerned about your whereabouts could mean chivalry isn't totally dead, it could also hint at potentially controlling behavior.

In some cases, the relationship that you're in can be more trouble than it's worth and more toxic than you may even realize. And that's especially the case if you're in a relationship with a controlling partner.
