I just broke up with my boyfriend. The reason is I just don't like his character. He seems controlling, and I definitely find that unappealing. We talked about me wanting to put up an artwork in his new home. I mean, I don't even know if I want to paint; it has been so long. It was just a fun idea to think about. I don't even know if I would go through with it. I don't even know what to paint. It would probably take a year or so to think of something interesting to paint.
Anyway, he told me that the living room is off-limits and that he would have to judge my painting. You know, I hate restriction. The more restricted something is, the more I want to do it just to get back at that person.
It has occurred to me that this is not love because if you love someone, you would allow them to hang up anything on your wall no matter how crappy it looks
. I mean it's just a wall. It's not like I wanted something big. I mean, if he can't even do this then I don't know how we can fit together. This is a big deal breaker.
He even compared me to the previous owner that still lives there where the husband allows his wife who is an artist to put her paintings on the wall. He said it's because I am not like her, who happens to be an artist
. Gee... thanks a lot. That is a real heart warming comment.Is he being controlling? Have you ever been in a similar situation?
