Firstly, that’s just unhealthy. You shouldn’t be putting each other down in the first place. But the thing is, we see this all the time and it’s toxic because he might actually be very hurt by it. And he can’t even make her see how much it bothers him.
#2 Rules about who you can and can’t hang out with. This is just absurd for so many reasons. If you’re in a happy and healthy relationship, these types of rules shouldn’t even exist. You should just trust your partner to be with anyone and remain faithful.
But we see far more women making the rules than men. She can even make sure he doesn’t spend time with certain male friends she thinks are bad influences. And when the tables are turned, she’ll get annoyed at him for not trusting her. That’s not fair.
