I appreciate the guest post, Jewel Rodgers
My girlfriend and I decided to move in together next month, and I am worried that I will not be able to deal with her behavior. She is very anal retentive, and this move is making it more evident than ever. She will not let me have any say in where we live or the décor of our new place, and I feel like she is trying to take control of my life. She has already gone to http://www.direct.TV and set up our satellite service without consulting me. I really wanted to get HBO and Showtime, but she got the most basic package and said she would prefer we didn’t spend any extra money on that. It’s not that big of a deal, but she said it without giving any deference to my feelings. She is also making me get rid of all of my furniture because she says we need to start fresh. I understand some of the things she wants to do, but I think she is taking it too far. I am worried that I am making a huge mistake moving in together and I don’t know what to do!
