I didn’t think anything of it though, because i figured I would be a little jealous if he talked to his ex. As the months went on we started spending more and more time together.
Aside from my part time job and school, I would HAVE to go to his house after work until 11 or sometimes 12.
Putting himself in a “father figure” position will install more of a sense of control.
Treating you like a child that went to the mall, prior to doing her homework, is the kind of humiliation in you he is trying to achieve.
