Dating after a controlling relationship
The scary thing about a controlling relationship is that a lot of the time, we don’t even realize we’re in one.When you’re in love with someone, it’s sort of like putting on a pair of rose-colored glasses – you see the happy things, the things you want to see.Your boyfriend shouldn't be getting mad at you for hanging with friends without him, going to party if he's not around or innocently talking to guys without him there. If he can't let you have any time to yourself, that's a sign that he wants to be in control of what you're doing all the time.
This isn't always as nice as it seems - sometimes, it's a way to control you.
Dealing with a controlling boyfriend isn’t easy and, unfortunately, it can turn into an abusive relationship way too easily.
Check out these signs that your boyfriend is too controlling – and if he is, get yourself out of there before it’s too late.

There's a fine line between this being cute and this being controlling. When things get more serious, it's not always as cute.

If a guy insists on being with you or talking to you 24/7, it means he wants to always know what you're doing. He shouldn't be saying, "you can't wear that" or "you can't go there." My ex used to buy me clothes so that I would wear what he wanted me to wear - at first I thought it was sweet, but then I realized it was just because he didn't want me to wear certain things.
