    I am trying desperately to break up with my

    boyfriend, but he won't take no for an answer, he won't leave me alone, he refuses to see that I just need to move on. He won't let me go because he says that you need to fight for someone you love. And I do know that he loves me that all of his heart. It really and truly has...

    So my bf was amazing

    when we met. Sweetest guy ever. Cried if he upset me, took me to fancy dinners and had lots of sex. I eventually moved in to his house, which is quite far from where I came from like 4 hours... He started to change when his sex drive went to basically zero. He got grumpy, he...

    My boyfriend isn't your typical bf.

    I'm pretty sure no other woman would ever put up with his ****. We have a son together so it's not that easy to just break up with him. I am trying to make it work. But I'm not even the slightest bit happy with him. I feel like he acts like he is too good for me. The girl he had...

    I didn't end up leaving him today like I'd

    planned. I just didn't see the rush. Maybe it's just the honey moon phase wearing off, and I'm not used to having relationships that last more than a month, or relationships at all. For the most part, I've just had flings here and there. So he came over, and I couldn't think...

    We've been dating for three months.

    We've said "I love you". I know he really cares about me, but I just don't feel the spark. We don't do anything fun when we hang out and he's really moody. He's not a bad guy, which is why I haven't broken up with him. But I don't want to be with him anymore.
