They are extremely jealous of anyone who gets your attention, even of work or other hobbies.
They want you there for them at all times, and they want to be your highest priority.
They plan out how others should behave as well and criticize anyone who doesn’t conform.
Control freaks cling rigidly to these plans, making no room for mistakes, uncontrollable events or human weaknesses.
They make all the decisions for any relationship or plan.
Even if they agree to do something your way, they will often go and do it their way without telling you. Often, these petty tyrants will tell you their meddling is for your own good and shows how much they care.
The most destructive thing a control freak can do is to take away the autonomy of another person.
This is most likely to happen to people in relationships with them.
Control freaks also use guilt and fear to manipulate others.
They’ll paint a picture of the disaster that will result if they are not in charge.
Now you can tell the warning signs that your date is a control freak.
