Before Reading: The title does come off a bit offensive, but it's a quote from a song. Storm Large - Ladylike
I've had a somewhat (though really not) similar thread like this deep within the past. But, the topic has somewhat changed since then. I'd like to make it very clear I am not biasing any gender, as what I'm about to explain can happen with any gender.
I'm sure all the ladies here have experienced this before, or at least see it around them.
In relationships of any pair, why is it every so often a partner is very controlling? Why do they feel us women (hell, even men, but this is more geared towards ladies, guys!... You can still give your opinion ^^; ) should look a certain way? That we can only do certain things, or that we aren't allowed to be ourselves at all? What drives someone to be so possessive, controlling, etc?
I'd like to discuss the following questions in this thread:
What is ladylike in your opinion? Like, how should a woman act?
Have you ever been in this situation? Or saw someone close in this situation?
And, your opinion on the subject in general.
