dont listen to them. at that age its possible the change could be genuine and hes prob matured. besides it doesnt matter, your gonna stick it out anyway. you should write a blog about it...god knows you have been asking so many Qs!!!
If he never cared about you before, it's unlikely to be a genuine change. I'm not going to say it's impossible, but I will say to be careful.
It sounds to me like you should leave him. He treated you poorly in the beginning and regardless of his improvement you should be aware of your own feelings.. what I mean in saying that is that you feel that you were wronged by him and as such you are always going to expect this behavior. It sounds like you are asking this question because you are skeptical of the reasons for his change. I encourage you to do whatever makes you happy, but a healthy relationship is built on trust.
I would likely approach with caution. It could be he realized the error of his ways. I don't know. It could also be a ploy to get into your pants, regardless of whether you told him you were going to wait until marriage for sex.
Good for you. If you do continue with this guy, do so with both eyes wide open. I wish you the best of luck going forward.
makes no sense. he used you like a sex toy , yet you say your not having sex till your married?
He is still using you.
