I don't live with my boyfriend but see him most days. The other day I was going round but missed the train. I texted him to say that I would be there soon after 7pm - but didn't actually say I had missed a train. I then called to say I was at the supermarket and would be there in 15 mins, but he was really annoyed when I arrived. He is generally quite controlling and suspicious of me if I happen to go out and not tell him in advance for example if I decide to go shopping and don;t mention in advance he thinks this is not acceptable - we don't live together and I am used to being independet - is this unreasonable?

I think you already know that it is sad
You told him you were going to be late, that should have been the end of it unless you were heading for a flight/train and you'd have missed it as a consequence.

I think I would ditch before it gets more complicated.

unreasonable yes.

you know it is.

very controlling and big red flag.

Do you have to ask? It's worse than unreasonable, it's positively nasty, creepy behaviour. I'd restore your independence on a permanent basis and dump Mr Possessive back under the rock he crawled out from.

Get rid pronto.

Hugely unreasonable. Run like the wind.

You need his approval to go shopping or to go out? He throws a huff when you're unavoidably late? He's suspicious of you doing..absolutely nothing?

Sounds like a real charmer! Run for the hills!
