  • You can't change a man, they need to change on their own.
    No I don't think it's a healthy relationship if that man's controlling and I honestly cant tell you why they are like that. Maybe they are brought up that way or maybe because they still have that cave man gene in them.

  • You change it by finding a different man.

  • Not all men are like this and unfortunatly you cannot change him. A man (or woman) has to WANT to change for it to actually happen. The best advice I can give you is either accept him for who he is and work on the issues at hand or find a man who loves you for you and doens't want to control you. Good luck:)

  • Not all men are like that, if you don't like your s/o's behavior then find someone else.

  • My man is not controlling. I play music in bars and he supports me and is proud of me!

  • oooh ooooh!lol Usually when a person is controlling it's because they have a deep fear of not having control. Insecurity.
