Have a plan. Get support. Let your friends and family know what you're trying to do. If you're leaving do it all at once. Have friends help.

You must cut off all communication. Once you tell him your relationship is over, don't have anything to do with him. He'll try to control you even in the breakup. But you must not allow him to manipulate you. The only thing he'll understand is a complete, final cutoff.

Just tell him you are through and he needs to leave you alone now. If you don't feel safe doing this, or if he continues bothering you afterwards, don't hesitate to contact a domestic abuse hotline or your local police. As a domestic violence advocate, I know that controlling behaviors escalate into other kinds of abuse.

Stop being coy , show him that you are an independent person. Do not obey everything he says,but try to make him do what you want for a change. Make it very clear that it is going to be an equal relationship. Otherwise,tell him it won't work. Explain that both will be miserable together and end the relationship.
