Has your spouse or boyfriend (or ex) ever compared you to an ex-girlfriend? Maybe pointing out ways she was better or things she did that you don't do? Does he compare you to his mom and wonder why you can't be more like her? My spouse has never done this to me. But, I have a friend who swears that her boyfriend is always comparing her to all the other women in his life, including his mom and his ex-girlfriend. I don't think that I could live under that kind of constant scrutiny and critisizm. I'd melt! What would you do in a similar situation? What advice would you have for that person?
