It's happened before with me and usually signals the end of the relationship, or a dramatic shift at least.

My Man and I have been together more than 20 years. There have been times, especially when the children were very small, when I felt, "OMG, I can't get out of this! I'm totally dependent on him and so are these babies." I felt very panicky when I would hit these times.

They were usually short lived. I want to depend on him. I can depend on him. It was just scary knowing that if I had to go it alone, my life would have been substantially different and very difficult. I got married fairly young, so I had little time on my own, except for college.

It happens, but we overcome it and go on. I know he's felt the same way, but usually with the fear of "If I go, all these people will starve to death and have no where to live!" That's a lot of pressure.

We overcame it and we still love each other. Long term loves go through a lot of different phases. I'm glad I didn't leave the first time I panicked. It got better over the years, and I am grateful we are still in love and still together every day.

Not really, I mean once in a while I daydream about other stuff and what ifs but I've never felt trapped since I'm just generally a pretty independent person I suppose.

Fortunately, I have not felt that way with who I'm with now. I have in the past with an ex though.

When my husband goes on a drinking binge, yes. But we have been able to work through a lot and have compromised to make this relationship work. I think there are always times in every relationship when you both feel trapped, but the key is realizing why and working out the issues.

It happened twice in my life... Oh well, they are over blissfully, and now I am with my OnlyMaster all safe and sound and as happy as one could be! ^^

This right here for me too. Minus some information, but same general idea.

Nope. I've always been open about things, and we end up usually resolving the issue or breaking it off

I have a lot of psychiatric problems, so any "trapped" feeling I get is usually trauma related.

I felt trapped in my relationship with my son's father for years. It was mostly a matter of our worldviews and priorities simply not meshing, but what started out as him being protective of me because I'd come to him from a shitty situation turned into him trying to control my every action.

I think it's normal to feel trapped for short periods of time, or to have those moments where you feel that way, but in this case, it wasn't something I could solve without actually leaving.

I'm still glad I did.

Yeah. Been happening to me lately, I was having a lot of stress and anxiety, so I just kind of cooled it down. Going to hopefully see where it goes when i'm less stressed.

It happens, but we always communicate and the feeling goes away. Sometimes I am just in a bad mood and want some alone time. Nothing wrong with that. I think it can be a bad sign, but can happen in a happy healthy relationship too. Sometimes you just need your space.

This is same for me, except I have left every single time eventually. It's a sucky feeling.

It's at that point that a break is good.

I've been with my boyfriend for a little over 15 months, and I've only ever felt "trapped" for a day or two at a time.
