A recent weekend trip with a co-worker has got me thinking about relationships. She's got a boyfriend and boy, does he ever make me glad that I don't have one. I mean this guy is a fairly nice guy and all, but there is just little things he does that drive me up the wall and then it makes me think about myself and what I would be willing to put up with if it was me.

It's just little things like...always correcting her on every thing she says/does, and always telling her what to do. Sometimes I think he acts more like her father than a boyfriend! It gets me thinking, how much is too much? How bad does he have to be before you can start calling him "controlling"? He doesn't hit her or call her names, does that make it ok?? Or is this a warning sign of future behaviour like that?

When I hang out with them, I think to myself " if this is what its like to have a boyfriend, then I don't want one!"
I like to think that if it was me in that situation I would definately get out. But you can't really say until you've been in it right?? I bet all girls say that until they find that one guy they love too much to let go no matter what right?

I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic! How much is too much? How much would you put up with before you leave?

It's never too late to leave. I couldn't live with that for the rest of my life - and I didn't.
