While things start sweet initially, it may turn your lover into an overprotective and dominating so much so that you find it difficult to breathe.

7 Signs you have dominating boyfriend!

Sometimes it is difficult to analyse if this is love or plain controlling behaviour. You may turn a blind eye to all the signs when your relationship is still in the nascent stage as you are so much into him. While love can come with its own set of negative emotions like jealousy and tendency to overpower the other person, it is unhealthy if you are manipulated and made to feel guilty about every move that you make. Here are a few signs that your boyfriend is dominating over you even if you don’t realise it:


He won’t respect your space


A dominating boyfriend will never respect that space that you need as an individual. To him you are his pawn and he will try and use you to his own benefit. Your social life frustrates him for he wants you all to himself and doesn’t approve of the company that you keep. He has been caught trying to stalk you in public and disrespects your private space. You are answerable to him for every move that you make. At the end of the day you feel weak and powerless.[ Read: How to deal with a dominating partner?]

While this may feel great to those women who seek emotional refuge in the partners, it will surely get suffocating with time when you too will want some space to do things that you like with people other than your partner. Basically he expects you to worship him at all times. [Read: Do you crave constant attention from men?]
