    Hey all,
    So this may seem a little strange to have to ask, but here goes;

    I recently got with a guy and he's wonderful, genuinely such a nice guy. The problem is, in his last relationship it seems he was with a very overbearing and slightly manipulative girl, completely the opposite of me as I'm probably the most laid back girl he could have found. (not always a good thing!)

    I'm worried this has really affected him and it may start affecting our relationship. How do I help him overcome his perception that all girls are controlling and show him that he can have a relationship that's just full of love and fun, not arguments and "her coming first"

    Thanks in advance

    Does he play Video Games?
