It’s acceptable to text the man in your life to see how his day is going or to share a piece of good news. It becomes a problem if you text him constantly throughout the day and expect him to reply every time. Then get upset if he doesn’t text you back instantly. Unless he doesn’t have a job, go to school or have any hobbies, a man is not going to be able to entertain you all day. Needing to be in touch with your man every moment of the day gives the impression that you have nothing else to do with your time. Your man might start to feel smothered or that you don’t trust him. Besides what do you have to talk about when you’re face to face if you text him all day?
- You run all decisions past him
If you require your boyfriend’s opinion on everything you do in your life, you are probably too dependent on him. It’s fine to ask his opinion sometimes, but if you make all your life decisions based on what he thinks, if you ever breakup you’ll be up the creek without a paddle. You need to learn to trust yourself, not all your decisions will be the correct ones, but that’s life. We all make mistakes, and we learn from those mistakes. You can’t live your life afraid to make the wrong decision and it’s not fair to put the burden of your life choices on your boyfriend’s shoulders. Especially if you blame him for decisions he made that didn’t go the way you wanted them to. Your opinion is the opinion that matters the most when it comes to your life. Also, your man might start to become irritated that you can’t seem to think for yourself.
