My boyfriend is getting controlling and raised his fist to me

DEAR JOE

I have been with my boyfriend for the past nine months or so. The beginning was great, we hit if off well and everything looked promising, but in the last few months he’s changed and has become really critical of me. He puts me down in front of friends, when I tell him I don’t like it he tells me I am just imagining things and being too sensitive. When we make plans he’s often late or doesn’t even show, and if I complain he tells me he is upset that I do the same thing – which isn’t true. Lately he has been accusing me of being on Grindr and hooking up with other guys, which is absolutely not true. Things came to a head last week when he grabbed my phone from me after I received a text. I tried to grab it back but he shoved me and showed me his fist in anger while shouting at me. He didn’t hit me but it terrified me. I get on with him like no one else when things are good but I feel bullied by him. What should I do?

About Attitude

The new issue feature former child star turned Bates Motel psycho, Freddie Highmore – who is all grown up in our exclusive shoot and interview. We also have a feature looking at why gay men love horror movies so much. On the eve of the UK general election we look back at party voting records and ask can we really trust the Tories? And as the Irish marriage referendum approaches, we look at the country’s road to equality, and how Colin Farrell is supporting his gay brother. In other voting matters, we ask experts if the UK can ever hope to win the Eurovision again. We have interviews with pop prince Will Young, American TV guru Andy Cohen, music mogul Pete Waterman, and that absolute babe Alexandra Burke. We also give you the run down on all the best prides and festivals of the summer.
