Have you tried controlling someone in a relationship? How does it feel? Does it give you the feeling of gratification? But I think if this happens, the relationship will go nowhere because when people are in a serious relationship, they must learn the skill to give and take, so to speak..it would never be a one-sided relationship if both want deeper commitment for each other. What are your thoughts on this? Thanks for sharing!

Hi there! I have not tried to 'control' anyone in a relationship. I think everyone needs to be given space and that must be allowed without blinking an eyelid. Some people like to be controlled and some like to command others. Some relationships can nurture if one controls and the other partner is controlled.

Yes, partners should have space and not to be controlled nor controlled the other. It is a partnership of equal that both are having the rights and freedom in the relationship. If controlling someone in the relationship will result into the more growing relationship and the partner to be controlled is just fine, i will try it. If not, i will try to.

i agree with this thing.. for a relationship to work, you need to give and take.. to listen to each other.. and most specially you need to put God in the center of your relationship for it work..

If you feel the need to control your partner you are in the wrong relationship. When you are with the right person there will not be a need to control them.

I never have, i think it should be 50/50 and trust eachother the only way the relationships going to last, if you try to control someone they will eventually get sick of it and leave you. i've seen it happen but personally me myself never control anyone or even attempt to. I wouldn't cause i wouldn't want it done to me, and i think its only fair to treat each-other equally.

I have never tried to control anyone in a relationship. i have had it done to me a few times though. I guess it made them feel better about themselves. I think they were insecure.
