Being in very possessive relationship before there is one question I hated to answer...
Why do you spend time with your friends instead of me? This the question a possessive person asks. If your boyfriend or girlfriend wants the two of you to spend every waking moment together, that’s a sign of insecurity. This person needs constant affirmation of your “love” for you. You’ll be asked to prove your love by either taking your girlfriend/boyfriend along with your friends, or be asked to stop going out with your friends altogether.
Either of these is an unhealthy situation. A relationship should be healthy and open enough that the two of you can spend time away from one another without distrust and anxiety. A guy needs to be with the guys every once in a while. A woman needs female friends to bond with, too. To ditch your friends and spend all your time with one person makes you a lot less well-rounded and a lot less interesting.
Don’t be controlled and don’t be controlling. If you let your partner control your every action, they are going to have less respect for you. And if you let this person set the ground rules — that is, every decision has to be okayed with him or her — you are setting yourself up to play the fool in love. Stand up for yourself, be your own person and let your partner understand you need time with your friends.
Ultimately, if you’re not doing anything “wrong”, it doesn’t hurt for your boyfriend or girlfriend to have a little healthy jealousy of your time. If you don’t want to be separated, you probably are a little anxious about your partner’s wandering eyes.
