If your partner is jealous and is always keeping track of you, there will often be a lack of trust as well.
When you tell your date that you were out with friends, a non-controlling person might not ask many follow-up questions.
A controlling person's main interest is controlling you.
So, while it may seem nice that your partner is always available, this can, in some circumstances, be a bad sign.
The signs of a controlling relationship are often so subtle in the beginning that we dont even realize what is happening until we feel trapped in it, afraid for ourselves and equally afraid for our partner.
Controlling relationships usually develop from fear. The controlling partner is afraid that he or she is going to lose the one they love while the one who is being controlled is afraid at first of hurting their partner, and then eventually, of their partner.
He or she will go out with friends and get upset if you ask questions, but will not even think twice of questioning you. While there can be many reasons why someone practices verbal abuse, this is often a tactic of a controlling person.This is because you, as the non-controlling person, will sometimes be unaware of whether the controller is experiencing bouts of jealousy or lack of trust.
