Thank you for your understanding ...

I wanted to make a second post to thank the people that replied to my first post . ( Yeah - that DOES sound weird ! ) It was about the equality issues - just a few posts down.

I can't thank you all enough for not making me feel foolish for complaining about such a weird thing.

Quote from asolo :

We are pretty bad at taking feminine hints, I'm told.

You made me crack up laughing .... I really needed that laugh ... * high 5 ing ya !*

Being blunt doesn't get me anywhere - neither does bargaining . As I said , I've been near tears & that hasn't helped. Actually - I have a laundry list of things that he does that make me feel smothered. I guess too much of a good thing can even be crippling. I don't see an end in sight - ( maybe I should "threaten" counciling ....!) I just want to thank everyone for your understanding.

RE: Thank you for your understanding ...

if nothing helps then maybe your only option is to go see a counselor, don't threaten, just suggest it to him, not a bad idea.

If he does not want to go, go by yourself, see if it helps you to put things in a perspective. everything is relative...

I certainly understand how you feel. Try to laugh about it rather than cry. :)

RE: Thank you for your understanding ...

As someone said, "Polite can be controlling."

only it isn't manners;
it's control being called manners.

A person who knows that his behavior is making his partner unhappy & who says, "*I* like it" & continues...
is not concerned with her happiness or comfort.

He's in the driver's seat, & he's driving his life & yours.

I'm so sorry;
I don't have any suggestions on how you can get what you want.

When someone has all the marbles & won't give you any, you have to make decisions about whether you want to stay in a game you'll just lose over & over until the day one of you dies.

Oh yes, it is really very great. Your are welcome all the way. Defiantly here we are to help other in social matters.

A counselor is a good idea. I was going through a bad time and my doc recommended seeing one. He explained that when we are unhappy we see the problem one way, a counselor can offer options we have not thought about.
