I know this is a bit of a late followup. I have been doing research for a college project about contolling people and came across your message post. Patricia Evans book CONTROLLING PEOPLE was very helpful for me. Even if you are out of this relationship with this guy it may come up again and you may be able to stop it before it gets started.
> CAN YOU HELP ME? I HAVE A ROOMATE, HE IS MALE AND NO SEX INVOLVED. WHEN WE FIRST MADE AGREEMENT TO STAY TOGETHER, I WAS TO PAY HALF. THE RENT. HE TRIED TO GET ME TO PAY THE TOTAL AMOUNT AND ASK FOR MONEY. I STOPPED IT. NOW HE CLAIMS HE IS IN LOVE. I AM NOT INTERESTED IN HIM. I TOLD HIM THIS. HE FOLLOWS ME EVERYWHERE AND TRIES TO CONTROL EVEVERYTHING. HE WON'T LET ME TALK TO OTHER PEOPLE. IN WOULD LIKE TO GET AWAY. IN HE MEANTIME, WHAT CAN I DO AND WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIM?
