Blog Hog Today - Is your SO healthily scared of you?
Now that may sound REALLY strange, but I was unsure how else to word what I am trying to get at. I saw another poster's comment about saying how they would look like the girl in the Exorcist if their SO had done what the OP's SO had done and it made me think about relationship dynamics. For example, when watching a movie or show and either a man or woman does/says something in regards to an ex or even step life situation that is a definitely boundary crosser or disrespectful to the current SO/relationship, my bf jokes how he would be too scared to do that and see my reaction. He says it in a joking manner, but I also know he knows deep down that I would not forgive him or put up with that sort of behavior, especially when it comes to an ex or something along those lines. Personally, I think it is a good thing that he knows basically what my boundaries are and I will not be a door mat even though it may not seem as big of a deal to him or he would lose me and losing me scares him. I can even say I have things that I know I would not want to see bf's reaction to, but I have less possibility of those things happening than he does because I have no reason to be in contact with anyone I have a history with. So this brought me to my conclusion that my bf is the healthy amount of scared of me and I think it is a good thing. Thoughts?
