i was talking to a friend of mine today and we talked for a little while and we talked about a lot and he said that his girlfriend was upset with him and i ask why and he just said that she though that she was being controlled and this guy isn't like that at all from what i have heard from his ex's and from being his friend...she was gonna do something with her friends and he thought it was dangerous and he was worried so he ask her if she would stay at home and not do that and she said no she wanted to and they talked about it and he just gave up finally..and she said that she thought it was controlling and he said he was just trying to protect her...so what do you think a controlling relationship is? thanks for taking the time out of your day to read and review my discussion and hopefully answer it as well, i hope that you all have had a great day so far and that you continue to have a great day...thanks again for taking the time!

If he thinks something is dangerous and he speaks up and asks her not to do it, that isn't controlling. But if he is constantly telling her what she can and can't do, how to act, how to think, how to be, that is controlling.

i agree i didn't think that it was controlling because he honestly thought that it was dangerous and she started to pitch a fit on him, thanks for taking the time to reply!
