When I leave work I head straight to his house and usually stay there the entire weekend.
When I don't, he throws tantrums and threatens to not see me for days at a time or to break up altogether.
My guy friends all tell me to let him go because it's only going to get worse, but my female friends all tell me to tough it out. Your guys sounds majorly insecure and like he has some control issues.
Information is power, and that works both ways, but if he knows how busy you actually are, he has little ground on which to stomp his feet in anger.
If he's not understanding of your busy schedule, or your priorities, once you've laid them out, then he may not ever be.
He also sounds like a bit of a baby (who throws tantrums, really? Whatever his deal is, you're totally right to assert that being in a relationship doesn't mean you should give up your pals, or all your free time.
He should have his own life, and while he should appreciate the time you spend together, if he continues to press on you like this, he needs to realize he's going to chase you away completely. Maybe reassure him that you're with him, but make it clear that that could change if he continues to act like a gatekeeper.Why would a woman stay in a relationship with a guy who puts her down, hems her in, and perhaps even physically abuses her?
