It is good to see possessiveness in your partner but once that takes the shape of close control on your daily movements, it can get very suffocating.

  1. I don’t care much for possessiveness in my partner. we are two individuals in a partnership, not objects to be owned. I find that whole concept very immature and superficial. Falling in love is not about owning or having monopoly over someone, it is caring for them unconditionally.

  2. Possessiveness that comes from pride is great in my opinion. But if it stems from insecurity or lack of trust, that may be an issue. And it is the latter that can get controlling and suffocating and can be the death knell of a relationship
