5. Makes You Feel Guilty
Controlling men often try to make you feel guilty because you have other interests.
They may imply it, rather than say it outright.
Let's say you want to go away with friends and your boyfriend doesn't like it.
He may pretend that he's not feeling well, but tell you not to worry, go anyway, he'll cope … So you cancel your plans, and he's got his way without appearing to have told you what to do.
