Possessive BF Traits That Are Scary, Not Sweet ...


Some men will treat you like a criminal, but will claim that they act that way out of love.

However, it doesn't matter how much someone cares about you, because there are some lines that they just shouldn't cross.

If they do, it's not a romantic gesture, it's a red flag.2

Here are some possessive traits that you should consider scary, not sweet:

1. He Reads All of Your Texts

If your phone is sitting on the counter and buzzes, there's nothing wrong with your boyfriend looking to see who texted you.

However, if he demands to read every single conversation you have on your phone and on Facebook, he's overprotective.2

It's a good idea for you to allow him to look through your phone occasionally, because it shows you have nothing to hide, but it's unhealthy for him to snoop through it every single time you leave the room.

He Tracks Your Movement


I disagree with letting him go through my phone on occasion. I'd never ask my man to let me look through his (so disrespectful!) and I'd dump him if he needed to go through mine. Boundaries.
I once dated this really charming, handsome, kind man who slowly started to become a creepy psycho. One day out of the blue he informed me that I "swing my left arm a little to much when I walk". Yes, his true colours emerged and he was a controlling asshat! Couldn't get rid of him fast enough. Literally. He stalked me and I had to call the police. Beware of any and all red flags and trust your instincts. There are plenty of weirdos out there!
This is some scary shit I will not put up with or anyone should we have to live our own lives
That's a relationship destined for failure.
