I attended the Branford Marsalis and Joey Calderazzo Duo performance this weekend. It was a truly fantastic night of live music that drew a very diverse crowd. I had such a great time!
I happened to notice (because I’m nosy when I want to be!) a woman and her man/husband/bodyguard nearby. They were standing very close to one another. What I first thought to be sweet affection started to look more like overprotective man with his woman. I tried not to roll my eyes when he had to stay by her side as she walked to the bathroom. Seriously?
I know I’ve been single for a hundred years, but when did it become necessary to guard your woman this much? I do love the idea of being protected and taken care of by men. I just wonder at what point does it cross the line into domination territory?
What are the signs that the person you are seeing is too controlling?
Some women like to be dominated and encourage Alpha male behavior. I always find it interesting how the dynamics play out in a relationship, though. Are men happiest when they retain the power? What are your thoughts?
