    You have to keep in mind that she is 8 years younger than you. You might be the "provider" in the relationship simply because you are older, more mature, and know how to be in a relationship better.

    She isn't even an adult yet, and might be looking for something less serious than you are. You should talk to her about it. Tell her you feel as though you put more effort in the relationship (or whatever it is that you feel), but don't be mean about it. Just let her know that you want to make sure you two are on the same page.

    Are people actually taking this seriously? You all need to learn how to spot super-mega-obvious trolls. Here's a tip: they're super-mega-obvious.

    I provide a lot for her. Since we started going out from the first date, I have always paid half of the costs of anything that we do so it is always a fair relationship. I let her go out with her friends once a week and don't interrogate her over who she spoke to or what she did providing she's home at a reasonable time. I've helped her with her degree work (she's 19 at university, and i'm 27) and pointed out parts that made her sound stupid that she could improve on to get a better grade. The list goes on.

    But I still feel that what she does for me doesn't really balance out. I am grateful that she has a meal ready for me at 6pm Monday to Friday when I return home from work, but then she tells me she's been busy with university all day and is too tired to go out sometimes or do anything with me, when i've been working a busy 9-5 job.

    Another thing that bothers me, is that I come from quite a wealthy family. She has met my parents and they didn't approve of her background, but I convinced them to be civil. Now I'm supposed to be meeting her parents in a couple of weeks and I'm worried they will be very common.

    Just wondering if anybody has any suggestions on how I can train her a little better, and maybe make her a little more respectable?
    Let me highlight the points that made me think to myself 'what an absolute tosser'.

    In conclusion I think you may in fact be a tosser.

    If my boyfriend EVER tried to tell me I couldn't go out when I wanted to I would walk out the relationship, laughing at the fact I'm so stupid not to have realised previously what a complete knob he is.

    You don't boss your girlfriend about.
    You don't put yourself above her family just because mummy and daddy had a bit more money than her parents did.
    You don't complain about paying half... what, you expect her to pay full???

    **** off troll

    U have finished ur uni, why can't she concentrate on hers?
    U r too egoistic and it appears you want a woman that only listens to u, do as u say etc, "respect" u...

    I think if she ditches u it will be for the best /=

    What's sad is that although this does seem like a complete and utter joke, there are doubtless some people in the real world whose opinions are exactly like this.

    Perhaps more worryingly is the fact that some people will actually put up with a partner of this sort of attitude.

    On the upside, it does make me feel somewhat more confident about how good I will be in future relationships. I can't be this bad can I?

    They can do that?

    OH WAIT. We resolved our differences over a coffee and I've apologised for my control in the relationship! We are living happily ever after.

    I think she's done enough for you already just by resisting the urge to strangle you.
    Seriously, you want to 'train' her??? You're worried her parents will be 'common'?? GTFO
    This made me burst out laughing lmao.
    To the OP: If i was her i'd have left you long ago. You're a controlling freak and besides, most guys offer to pay for everything(although i don't let them )
