    Me and my boyfrienfd have been going out for just over two years.He will not let me get facebook. I am desperate to get it, because i am going to uni in september, and i really do not want to lose contact with my friends. He doesn't see it this way because at the start of our relationship i used to go to on the internet and chat to lads i didn't know, but i do not do this anymore. He keeps saying do what you want but i know if i do he will shout at me.

    What would you do?

    Do it anyway, **** him. Having a relationship where he tells you what you can and can't do over things like this is incredibly unhealthy.

    I would sit him down and talk to him about the reasons why I wanted to get facebook. Explain to him the fact that you think that it will enable you to keep in better touch with your friends from home when you go to uni and also allow you to keep up to date with what is going on at uni (as invites and events are sometimes advertised on facebook. Make it clear that this is not for you to chat up guys and that he would be able to see that if he added you as a friend.

    I think that if you are sensible about it he shouldn't really have a problem with it.

    Don't let him control you indirectly through his behaviour. If you want facebook, get it. I can't understand why people allow other people to tell them what to do.

    Get it & get him to get it too. He's obviously feeling very insecure about you having the opportunity to talk to other boys, so if you both have you can have each other in your relationship status and 'mark each others terroritory' so to speak. Then if you do speak to boys they will know you have a boyfriend.

    next time you give him a blowjob, don't be afraid to use your teeth and then the little ***** won't be telling you what to do.

    or if that fails, talk to him about equal rights.

    Talk to him about it, it is not just a random thing he has picked out of thin air, there is a reason he dosent want you doing it.

    When you have the reason you can then try and work throught the problem and talk together about it, at the end of the day facebook is harmless enough and i think you need to tell him how it isnt going to detract from your relationship in anyway.

    Am I reading correctly?
    He said that you can not have facebook.

    Take this advice:


    DUMP HIM!!!!!!!!
    How can you allow yourself to follow him and take your orders he is just your boyfriend , not your dad!

    Don't let anyone control you. It seems asif you're boyfriend is very jealous, I would stake my student loan on the two of you splitting up after a month of uni because of it.
