My best friend was married to a man that was abusive like this to her. I am afraid this man is far to controlling and abusive, please leave him. It doesn;t matter how you manage to leave him, just please leave him. This kind of relationship is unhealthy and it only gets worst. Take care of yourself. Good Luck.

Ciar agony auntI got about halfway through your post and I couldn't take anymore. Dump him. Dump him now. Don't wait for the 'right moment'. Don't even bother waiting to do it in person. In fact it's probably better if you don't do it in person because he'll just hold your arms at your sides until you agree to stay.

Please just dump him.

bruce lee agony auntWell, I think the sensible thing to do is to break up with him. Find someone who doesn't act like a kid. That's about all you can do. You don't have to tell him what you think. Just avoid him for a few months till he gets the message that it's over. You might have bitten off more than you can chew with this relationship.

Denise32 agony auntFor heavens' sake, everything you're telling us about this man is extremely negative! He seems not to have any redeeming features AND he's controlling, and abusive.

Since you don't live with him any more, I recommend you get a new set of keys made for your home so he can't just come in and bother you whenever he feels like it. Change your phone number (home and mobile) and block him. If he DOES manage to call you the second you realize it's him tell him he is not to contact you ever again; it's over, and then disconnect. Change your email address; block him on Facebook; don't hang out at places he's likely to be.

If he comes round to your workplace, then speak to your boss about your "unwelcome visitor" You might think about getting a restraining order if he insists on trying to get in touch with you - ESPECIALLY if he's going to be verbally or physically abusive.

The guy sounds like a monumental pest.
