if your boyfriend is keeping track of your ovulation schedule is that normal? I've never known a guy to know that or keep up with. my boyfriend told me its because he's very mature and I've never been with someone who thinks of all these things but it kind of makes me uncomfortable. does that make him controlling?
I assure you I would track it too. On an app... Ask me how I know about this. I want to know when the really dangerous days of conception are in the month and I also want to know when to expect aunt flo... or if she was late. Controlling, I can't see how it is. I can track it without you knowing and the girls I have tracked it with never did know. I knew how long the menses lasted, when to expect it and if they were late. It is a pretty responsible thing really.
Responsible and controlling are not one in the same.
A,he's just curious and wants to know. Were guys and don't have open plumbing, curiosity!
B, he wants to learn what days to avoid you ripping his head off his shoulders for leaving the toilet seat up(avoiding pms symptoms)
C, know what days to "pull out" or let the d*** tell the condom:"cover me I'm going in!" to avoid the baby making process.
D, all of the above.
I will go with D! Is my guess, now I've got a big fat joint that I must smoke now so good luck and congratulations on your man taking a deeper interest past your vagina and now into your uterus. Maybe someday he will make his way up to your heart. :P
I don't keep of my girlfriends but I generally know what time of the month it happens. I personally like to know so I know when to expect a bunch of PMS and so I can make sure I don't try to do anything sexual and having to make her tell me she can't do it.
He probably wants to know when you'll be on your period. Every guy knows women can turn into nasty creatures during that time and since your period generally occurs around the time of ovulation, he wants to know when to be prepared for it.
If you are on the pill or using other forms of birth control, I think this is very odd. If you are having sex with out birth control, he just wants to avoid getting you pregnant. Keeping track of ovulation is a common birth control method called the rhythm method.
He's actually behaving like a total male. He realized you have a cycle, it's what makes you work so he learned about his interest and what makes you work and now he is learning it and taking it into account for decisions. Total logical male behavior.
Sounds like he wants to avoid children. I personally find it intelligent. I keep track of mine and tell him because I know we both care about them. I have a feeling if we ever were to split (not actually foreseeably likely really) but he would have grown to enjoy the security of that knowledge and would try to find ways to keep up with it. It's a nice peace of mind...knowing that info. If YOU had a way to track when your boyfriend would be emotionally off balance...and know when he was most likely to impregnate you, you don't think you'd keep up with it? Pregnancy and emotional states are both really good things to keep in consideration. Think of it as his way of wanting to know when to be a little more tolerant and nicer.
