My partner has trouble controling his impulse to look at young females. He does try. He doesn't get anything out of it.He just has trouble controling the urge to look. It's really strange and has to be seen to see how bad it can be.He loves me to bits and would not be unfaithful in a million years. But it is sometimes a nightmare! Has anyone else had to deal with anything like this?

  • Its nothing. I mean, it's something to you, but hey: he likes lookin at hot chicks.You didn't give much information, and theres probably none needed, but are you talking Pedophilia type "looking" or excessive **********y, or staring at the waitress?I'm probably guilty of two out of three, myself (the latter ones, of course!)- and it's not an issue of impulse control and it isn't a disorder. Men are visual. Just be happy.

Besides that I don't need a definition for "young females"- but make sure they are young like 19 or 21, not like 14 or 16.

  • This is normal, he will grow out of it. They all do it. What he is doing wrong is getting caught at it. Guys look at women, they are wired in their brains that way, its not their fault. The only problem is that MOST men have learned through the years to do it discretely. I just told my husband that he needed to be a little more discrete about it and on MY part, I stopped looking to see if he was looking. If he had an impulse problem that involved other things, I would say there is a problem.
