Does your girlfriend control conversations, attempt to prove you wrong and constantly rewrite past events to make her point?

Does she force you into agreeing with her and threaten to leave you if you don’t do as she says? Do you constantly find yourself on the defensive, having to explain all your actions and words? Does she break down your self-confidence little by little until you begin to believe you’re nothing without her? If so, you might be dating a controlling woman.

These over-dominant women believe that men and relationships should run no way but their way and will even convince their men that it’s for their own good. If your girlfriend exhibits any of these 4 tell-tale signs below, you may very well be in the hands of an overbearing, emotional bully and unless you like having your life steered for you and your opinions made by someone else, it might be time to reconsider the relationship.

1. She makes your decisions for you

Controlling women will define you by telling you what you think and feel. They’ll tell you when you can go out and when you can invite the guys over to watch the game. These manipulative women believe that they should be able to make every decision in your life and will explode into long tirades when you do not behave in line with their plans. They believe that they know what’s best for their men and will even go as far as selecting the clothes you wear, choosing what movies you’ll watch and deciding what you should or shouldn’t eat.

2. She always has to be right

Controlling women must be right at all times. These women are never wrong, and everything is always your fault. They constantly use lines such as “I didn’t do that,” “I didn’t say that,” “I don’t know what you’re talking about,” and “It wasn’t that bad.” These women control men by shaming them for their thoughts, actions and every time they voice an opinion. They never try to understand your views and will constantly threaten to abandon you, end the relationship or give you the cold shoulder if you don’t play by their rules.

3. She tells you how to spend your money

A controlling woman will tell you that you’re spending way too much money on things you enjoy, like drinks and eats with your pals, and suggests you save up for more important things, like her new wardrobe. Before you know it, she’ll eventually become in complete control of your credit cards and your pay check.

4. She keeps constant tabs on you

A controlling woman will call you 10-15 times per day to keep track on what you’re doing, who you’re with and where you’re going next with each call. She also expects you to call her multiple times a day and demands to be by your side as often as possible.

One reply on “4 Signs Of A Controlling Woman”

Great to see people talking about signs of a controlling woman. Men are often surprised to be in relationships with controlling wives and girlfriends. I see this in my counseling practice frequently but we aren’t talking about it enough as a culture.
