ktg Posted September 1, 2011 Share Posted September 1, 2011 My boyfriend and I have been dating for a litttle under a year now. Our relationship has been on and off for the past two and a half years but this is the longest time we have been together. Like all relationships the beginning was so good. I think that I though that I loved him but I it could have been only stupis teenage love. I suppose I do not know the difference yet. This past summer has been very difficult for him. His Grandmother, whom he had been very close to passed away that spring and his relatives are constantly fighting over her estate. Through this difficult time, I have been the only one he has been able to vent to but it has gotten to the point where it has drained me. We would spend hours on the phone late at night and all he would do was talk about how much he hated the summer and how sad he was. It got to the point where I did not even know what to tell him. There were several times over the summer where I thought the relationship would end. I hated being around someone who was unhappy all the time. I know he has been trying to get better so I just stay, he cares for me so much. He has improved a lot with his pesimistic attitude but it is still there. I also don't wish to be in a relationship with anyone right now. I guess you could say that I have grown tired of it. I need a change, I want to be single. I have already tried to break up with him but he convinced me to stay and give him another chance. I stay because I hate to be another thing that makes him miserable. I care about him so much. And on top of all this his uncle was just diagnosed with cancer. I am unhappy in this relationship but how could I possibly end things when he is already going through so much? Will there ever be an appropriate time. I don't want to continue to drag this on. I love him, I am not in love with him though if that makes sense. Link to comment
