Alright, I feel like I'm in a bind here and I could really use some advice :\
Basically, I really love my boyfriend. We have a lot of great times together and are incredibly compatible in so many ways.
He's ridiculously sensitive! Now I have nothing at all wrong with sensitive guys, in fact that's one of the things I love about him, how he cares about me instead of just looking out for his own interests. But it's gone too far where it's at the point where it's a major hindrance.
If I try to bring up even the most minor of problems in a discussion, he gets REALLY upset about it, and most of the time beats himself up over something that is not even his fault or that big of a deal.
As my most recent example, today he asked when I wanted to come over to his house tomorrow. I suggested around lunchtime, 12 or 1-ish, and he asked if I could come over earlier since I have work to do tomorrow night and can't spend the whole evening with him. I said that was fine, but suggested that we don't have to spend the whole day together, because we do get to see each other a lot and in the future when we both get jobs and such we will have to get used to seeing each other considerably less.
In response, he got really upset, blaming himself for being "too clingy" and repeatedly apologizing even though I kept telling him he didn't do anything wrong, I was just making a suggestion!
This is so aggravating for me. And the worst part is, if I tell him how I feel right now, that I'm afraid we won't be able to communicate well if he takes everything as an attack, he'll just get upset about that too and beat himself up over it
What should I do? I really want to save this relationship, but the way it's going, I'm afraid there will just be a lot of stress and unhappiness
