She dated an extremely insecure man years ago.
He was an exceptionally nice guy who loved Patricia and treated her like a princess.
The moments together were incredible.
A few months later in the relationship, he began to think that Patricia’s friends were a bad influence on her.
She started to think that too and decided to spend less and less time with her friends.
Then it was the same with her colleagues at work, with her time at the office and her time at the mall.
He was never thick.
In fact, he was extremely understanding and nice.
Patricia was important to him.
However, he seemed to get hurt when Patricia went out without him.
Except he went out with his friends.
When Patricia told him she wanted to do something, anything, he was always furious if it wasn’t something he approved of.
Patricia then started to change just for him, to make him proud of her.
After all, he was a great catch.
However, the more Patricia tried, the more she failed.
Nothing pleased him, and he always found a way to point out flaws in the things she did.
Patricia was in this situation for almost three years until she decided to end the relationship once and for all.
A few dates later, Patricia met another great guy.
After a few weeks of dating this new guy, she started to see the same symptoms she’d seen in her old boyfriends, amazing guys who treated her well but over time turned into impossible men to please.
