I'm in my early 30s in my first relationship and we're living together. I'm used to being always single, strong, fiercely independent and a bit of a stubborn control freak. I like things done my way (but remain open) and when I express my views to BF he says I come off forceful especially when I don't hear his ideas. Like I'm always forcing my ideas one him. Tonight he was upset about the way I was taking care of some housework. True, I didn't hear out his ideas because mine made more sense at the time. I do not think I come off forceful and maybe its just my controlling side that comes out and I don't hear him out enough. Anyway, he said he's fine, but went to bed early, hardly talking to me. I need an outsider's perspective.
