We all hope that we’re in an equal relationship, but sometimes one person put much more into it than the other person. This article outlines four signs that you might be letting your boyfriend have too much power in your relationship.
You do things for him that he can do himself
You are dating a man, not a child. Many women, especially the younger ones, think that they have to prove to men they are good caregivers. Being a caregiver is not the job of a girlfriend. Your job is not to grab him beers and make him dinner and coffee. Your boyfriend’s job is definitely not to kick back and let you do things he can for himself. Doing things for each other now and then is sweet. By doing all the little things that he can do for himself, you are teaching him that he has someone else to handle those things. This is a bad precedent to set in a relationship because once it’s set, it’s hard to break.
You hold back opinions because they differ from his
Holding back opinions because your boyfriend’s is a bad idea. If you hold back your thoughts and opinions to avoid arguments, you are making a mistake. It’s good for couples to discuss differing opinions because you will likely not see eye to eye many times throughout your relationship. Your shouldn’t teach your boyfriend that if your opinion is different you will sit back and keep it to yourself. There is no reason for that. You only teach your boyfriend that only his opinion holds any water.
You give in when he gets angry
Anger is often used as a tool to manipulate others. If your boyfriend gets mad at you when you don’t do exactly what he wants, when he wants, he is manipulating you. He probably knows from experience that if he throws a fit or gives you the silent treatment, he is going to get exactly what he wants from you. It’s important that you stop letting him have that control over you.
You do things for him that he won’t do for you
You’re happy to do things for your boyfriend. You love him and that’s how you show much you care. If he asks you to bring him lunch at work on a busy day, you’d happily do it. If he won’t do the same for you though, this is not an equal relationship. He’s happy to ask you to do things for him, but refuses to do anything for you. This is enough proof that he thinks he has the control in your relationship.
If you are dealing with any of the above situations, it’s time to make a change. If making changes that better serve you make your boyfriend unhappy, he’s not as interested in your feelings as he is in his own. You shouldn’t put up with a relationship where someone tries to have power over you.
