When you love a control freak, you're just the puppet ... I’ve made out, had sex, been in love, and dated quite a few control freaks.
I suppose it’s not unusual for control (power and decision-making) to be an issue in romantic relationships but when you’re a person riddled with low self-esteem like I once was, you tend to attract and allow people to come in and take charge ... I've been on both sides of the fence: both the controlled, and on occasion, the controller (although, for the most part, I can sadly say I’ve been the marionette on someone else’s strings).
Controlling a person or situation just helps to reduce it at the time, but there will always be another time when the controller will feel stressed.
These all play a role in a relationship where one person is dominating the other through control.
How do you know if you are involved with a control freak? A healthy relationship contributes to our self-esteem and emotional energy.
However, a relationship that keeps you away from people is not healthy.
They put others down to make them feel better about themselves, giving them a sense of control knowing they can influence the way you feel.
If this sounds like him, we suggest you take a swift exit. Controllers have opinions for everything and anything. You might also like:21 Reasons Ginger Guys Are Gods Amongst Men30 Things MEN Wish Women Knew: The Secret of What Men Want - REVEALED!
