Aries men controlling???
I'm dating an Aries male (3/29) and I'm a cancer (7/9). He seems to be trying to control me. I'm a very independent woman. When I won't something done I don't sit around and wait for someone to do it. I get impatient and just do it myself. He thinks he should be with me at all times. My best friend who I haven't seen in years came into town for a few days to visit and he had to go with me everything I would go see her. I don't understand why he feels to need to go with me everywhere. Then, he tries to tell me I can't go do something or go somewhere without him. What is the deal with Aries??? Also, one minute we are arguing and the next minute it's like everything is great. I don't understand it all. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!! Please!!!
Well, my experience with two aries (husband & son) is if they're not controlling in the beginning of the relationship they are at some point later. They definitely are control freaks. You have to set them straight & I'd suggest you do so now rather than later.
What's the best approach when setting an Aries straight without him going off the deep end?
Just be honest, blunt but with tact. Being an aries he should appreciate assertiveness. Just say "I really like how you care for me but I need to do what I need to do without you at the time. I'm independent and It doesn't mean that I don't want you around. I just need to do this myself. However, I'd like to see you ....; are you available then?"
