The "My ex is a bigger control freak than yours..." threadPage 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Thought I'd start a thread like this to hear all the possible horror stories.

So I'll start it up with the worst of my exes in the controlling/possessive department:

We were at a restaurant and we had just finished our dinner and were about to leave. She said she had to go to the bathroom so I'm like "sure" and she goes. When she comes back she's hopping mad at me and tells me that as her man I must escort her to the bathroom and wait for her there in order to make sure she'll be safe.

And I'm like "wtf?"


Aahhh the memories. :)

Look forward to hearing others.

Just some ordinary restaurant, but she believed that's what a man should always do. Not to mention the dozens of other things she expected of someone that made you go "wtf?".

And there was plenty more where that came from. It was a tortuous 1.5 years with that person, believe me.

I've been divorced with my ex for many years and she is not only still my absolute best friend, but sweet, supportive, caring and wonderful. Sorry, no horror stories here!

Try going to a friends cook out where se dont want to go. Have her literterally calling every 5 - 10 min. Or have friends over more busy running around for what she ask then actually visiting to keep her from yelling at you. Eventually stopped getting invited to cookouts and friends stopped coming over. It was her way or hell to pay. I done the game for 10 years but she used my children as a chump card to do her bidding. Example I ended my carrer as a marine in fear of her leaving and taking my baby from me as she threatened.

I really was blind to it all and never really realized what she was doing till it was over. She still tries to control me or make me feel guilty for anything I do. She even drove by 4am to see whats in the yard and called yellin about it. But yet she left me and is supposedly happy why check up on me?

I’d split at the first “you gotta”.

I also like “Little Miss Jump to Conclusions”.

I had been single for about 3 months. I had met this gal for a root beer float. We had said hello for the first time about 6 minutes ago.

her > “Well how do you like single life”

me > “Well after being married most of my life - I am starting to get use to living alone”

her > “YOU’RE NEEDY”




And there is the world famous WTF did you just say lady? .............

Blind date - never saw her before. I think she was a football player for the NFL. I weigh 185 and she was bigger than me.

I’m sitting there wishing time would fly FASTER - and she ask me something that was NONE OF HER BUSINESS. We had only met (ugg) 5 minutes ago.

I kind of skated the issue ( it was nothing big but something sexual and she would have been the last person on earth I would have talked to about it )

She said.

“YOU BETTER NEVER LIE TO ME AGAIN”

The world is full of WHACKOS lol

Man! She sounds crazy! I hope you cut her loose, after that!

My ex would call my workplace just to make sure I was there...if he saw a car like mine...while he was out and about during my work hours.

No Crazy, HE was in the wrong - he should have escorted her to the bathroom just as she wanted , the idiot !


Restaurants can be dangerous !


A friend of mine was attacked by a SHARK on the way to the bathroom !
He was a good guy too !

I stand corrected.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your friend, Chuck.

Restaurants and bathrooms ARE DANGEROUS!
PLEASE! For EVERYONE'S SAFETY! Use the buddy system!!!

if he has to escort her, does he have to be transgender to go in and search for sharks?

never bothered with a control freak, but knew two ladies who did, and their control freak bfs trusted me with their "property" but no other guy. Its nice when even irrational jealous guys know you have no chance with their hottie gfs :) Still, I guess I can see the initial rush, a partner shows a blatent sense of caring, and by the time one realizes its not caring, its possessing, its "too late" to escape. Hopefully the controller buys lots of pretty jewelry or puts out often, b/c I personally can't see otherwise the attraction. maybe its a reflection of what they got at home growing up.

op reminds me of the actor, Eric Banna.

Wow. These stories are alien to me. I'm the "no drama" type of guy. My gf once accused me of cheating because of a voice message left on the house phone. She was pissed, and kept asking me "who is she?" and "what's going on?".

I told her to play the message so I could hear it. Wasn't a voice I recognized...but then I'm just not good at recognizing voices on the phone - I'm really terrible at it. The message was about meeting her somewhere for dinner or something. The voice never gave her name, never mentioned MY name, didn't specify the place to meet. Okay, wrong number...?

Gf was STILL mad at me, after playing the message 3 times. I told gf to call this woman back and find out who she was and why she called our home phone. I said I didn't care what she discussed since I didn't know who it was. I let her look at my cell phone for numbers. Ffffttt! What-evah! She never made the call-back. I wondered if she just had a bad day at work or something...? I dunno.

I've been lied to plenty of times by women - for what reasons, I dunno, but never "controlled".

I don't know your sense of humor so I'm thinking/hoping that this is a joke. If a man followed me to the bathroom, that would be the last time we saw each other, lol.
