Ask sis Dolly: She has fun without me

My girlfriend goes out every weekend without consulting me.

I'm 30, and work night-shift most weekends. What should I do?

Sis Dolly answers:

When you say "consult" do you mean she has to ask for your permission, or do you have a mutual agreement where you tell each other when you're going out? If you're expecting her to ask for your permission, she's clearly sending you a message that she's an adult and is not keen to do it. If you have a mutual agreement which she's not honouring, then you need to ask her what she expects from you and the relationship when she does behave in that way. If you are being controlling in your relationship, you need to check yourself and ensure your possessiveness does not become abusive. Speak to her about the issues at hand if you feel insecure.
