The person that seeks to control to the level you are speaking about, is either a sociopath or a narcissist, or both. In that case, I would say, stay clear of such a person. But I don't think all control freaks are incapable of beng a true friend.
I guess it depends on what you mean by the term 'control freak'. Those I would refer to in that way want to control everything in their lives, including you.
Mazzy you just described to a tee my biological father and brother. I hate to say it but I had to disown them and to this day do not regret it one bit. Wish I would have done it sooner. Oh the stories I could tell.
