I fell in love with him extremely quickly, and this has progressed into the most serious relationship I have ever been in, far more serious that my previous engagement, but I can't be controlled.
My friends and family label me as fiercely independent and headstrong, and don't understand why someone like me is even with him after his control issues.
I wear loose-fitting clothes and never show cleavage — I rarely even show my arms.
He said he was OK with any job that no longer required travel.
I found a job I really wanted with only two overnight trips a year, but he said no.
They feel like I'm being a hypocrite and are disappointed in me for not taking my own advice.
I know he loves me and that this is his first real serious relationship. Yours triggered four-alarm sirens, foghorns, flashing lights, the Bat Signal, weird flashing lights on my i Phone, and car alarms on my block.
I know he can learn to be in a healthy relationship without being controlling. I agree with your friends and family so much that I will take this one step further: Break up with this guy.
