While I enjoy a good Alpha male as much as the next girl, there are lines that cannot be crossed. A good writer knows where that line is and respects it. That didn’t happen here.

To summarize: stalking=Not Okay Punching holes in you SO’s wall=Not Okay Detaining someone who wants to leave=kidnapping/unlawful detention 30 missed calls/texts when someone doesn’t answer reply=Not Okay (unless you’re a mother with a hooligan kid) Disregarding your SO’s concerns about your relationship/behavior=Never Okay If your roommate locks an irate person out of the house, and you not only let that person and comforts that person and then leave your roommate alone with that person=Never Okay. You don’t need that BS in your life. If someone thinks its okay to use dog training tricks/ behavioral training to change you=Never Okay. Keeps you from doing your job/sexual harassment/puts you in a position of lying to your boss=Never Okay Power games=Never okay. Relationships are partnerships. One person does not get to hold all the power and call all the shots. and so many more.
