    I'm not really sure, but I think so, we spend more time fighting than anything else, according to him everything is my fault. I'll admit somethings are but not all. But even with all my problems we stay together. why?

    I am pretty sure I am in a toxic relationship.

    On top of some pretty nasty fights in which he confirmed every insecurity I have, he is the king of mixed messages--saying he wants a long term relationship with me but he doesn't want to make a commitment yet because of our issues. I believe he is emotionally withholding...
