Lately however he has become some domineering. I think he is afraid that if he lets her out of his site that he will lose her. She started her first part-time job and he's not pleased about that because it takes his time away. He doesn't have a job other than playing in his band which really isn't a job more of an interest. I've noticed that she's become more cranky and withdraw again. She doesn't come in the door all happy like she did at first. A few weeks ago she went out with a couple of her old buddies and wouldn't let him come. She came home so happy. They'd had a great time. She took these two guys makeup shopping with her. They'd also gone to the used clothing store. But she does it once and I think he makes her feel so guilty. She told me that she went down the hall at school to talk to another friend for two minutes and when she came back he wouldn't talk to her.
I'm worried about the summer. I told her that I don't want every waking moment to be them just hanging out together. I spoke to her about it yesterday and of course started crying. Funny thing was she agreed. She told me she told her best friend that I thought her and the boyfriend shouldn't be spending so much time. He also agrees with me an says that her boyfriend is too possessive. She is going to tell him what we think. I hope he doesn't hate us. I think personally he prefers things this way. Where she feels along and he's her saviour. The kid needs his own life, and a job.
Another thought I have is that she is afraid to ever have another boyfriend because it means having to explain about her scars and back plus the fear of possible rejection.
