My boyfriend keeps throwing my things away without asking me or, worse, even after I have told him not to. We live in a relatively small flat and don’t have a lot of space so he thinks it’s ok to just throw things away that he thinks are taking up space or aren’t important. I have just discovered that he’s thrown our laundry basket away! We only bought it a year ago and I told him I use it to get washing out of the machine (it was collapsible anyway!) but he has ignored me and thrown it away. It’s not the first time either – a few months back I discovered some of my CDs in the bin outside and he routinely chucks away vouchers or things that I have deliberately left out so I remember them.
I really don’t know what to do. I find it so disrespectful and I have told him that when he has done it before. I feel like throwing away some of his stuff to give him a taste of his own medicine, but I don’t really want to escalate the problem. What should I do?!

he sounds like like he has got some form of OCD. I mean the the laundry basket, seriously!!! that is obviously needed to put washing in after a wash, so now you have nothing to put it in, im sorry but that dosen’t make any sense atal. As for your CD’s, well if they were not your’s you would never throw them away if they were someone elses property. I think he has got some form of OCD problem, and maybe he needs some help, because this is just not normal behaviour.
