Hi there. I'm new to circle, and I'd just like to ask your thoughts. My partner may be the bossiet guy on the planet sometimes and is what I would consider high maintenance! I love him... He has some truly wonderful qualities... Mature, Responsible, and (to me) very very sexy! However, I'm a 20th century girl... And he wants a VERY traditional lifestyle with me. If I am to stay home, our house should be a show home, and while this makes sense logically, because I have nothing else going on at the moment... I also have 2 kids, his baby mama drama with his 4 year old son, and the fact that I have recently been on sick leave at work because of burnout from my hospital job. I don't know, maybe it's me- on the one hand I think I should be greatful... To leave that fast paced life and have this instead, but I find I'm bored to tears, and my hubby has very specific criteria to be happy in life. Perfect house, hot wife, kids behaving a certain way. I'm more laid back. I'm definitely not a dog by any means, but have put on a few, and I'm less interested in the perfectly clean house, as I am perfectly happy people! What should I do? I feel very unfulfilled. Is it just me or is it him too? And what can I do to just get him to chill? He's very "My way or the highway" help!

I get what you are saying my husband Is very much the same way. His way or the highway. Ive learned that if you keep doing things his way just to make him happy and not express yourself your only hurting your self more in the end. I say express your self. Im not saying go stright in and hammer him for his wrongs but just tell him your feelings. Tell him your not a puppet or a dog and u have feelings too. Express that you love him and all but there are some things that need to change if he wants to better the relationship. Communication is key.
