Why is my partner angry whenever I go out or go away without

This answer was rated:

Why is my partner angry whenever I go out or go away without him.I am 60 years old.
Dr. Mark :

Hi! I'll be glad to help you with this issue.

Dr. Mark :

It sounds as though your partner is very insecure. And that he keeps testing you to see if you really love him. Is this possibly what's happening?

Customer: I would say yes, though i need to tell u more.
Dr. Mark :

Please do, because so far from what I know, it would seem to be that self defeating pattern he's on that is based on insecurity: he says go ahead when he really means inside: "I'm scared if you go that you won't want me any more, so please show me you love me and don't go". Is this what's happening?
