Most Helpful Guy
A controlling person doesn't just try and decide for you what to do and not, the result of that and the actual controlling is the person actually manipulating your emotions. When you start to seriously criticize, mock or plain deny people their right to freely chose and express themselves, that is controlling.
I had a very controlling girl friend once. This is an example of how it would go down:
She said I had to watch this show she liked, and I absolutely hated it, and told her I really didn't like it. Then she would get REALLY pissed, and stopped talking to me for a few days. Similar things happened too. She wanted to decide things for me, I didn't "obey" and she started "punishing" me by removing her presence from me, as she knew I really depended on her.
It sounds dumb, but it really offended me that she would misuse my trust and thought she had power over me. I'm still friends with her, but she has less influence in my life now XD2
