Dear MizzB

I am 28 years old and in a relationship with a 48 years old guy. My challenge is that he treats me like his kid and has so many rules that he expects me to follow. I love him so much and don’t want to lose him. How can I make him understand that we are partners and equal?

Dear Sistaz

Communication remains the best way to sort out any issues that partners come across. Be open to your partner about how you feel and remind him that respect is earned and not forced. Loving him does not mean that you have to lose yourself and be a follower. It is important for you to lay down your expectations of equality in a relationship with him. A relationship is supposed to be a safe space where you can be free and contribute without any fears. Consider going for couple’s counseling so that you can both find a common understanding. All the best!
