Flamingo12 Posted August 5, 2019 Share Posted August 5, 2019 My boyfriend and I have been dating for quite some time however I do have strict parents. Due to this fact, I get to see him twice a week and it has never been a problem in our relationship. For the entire duration of our relationship it was perfect. We always compromised, made time for each other on calls, trusted each other and would do anything for each other. Like I said, it was perfect. We never had a terrible argument and if we did have any disagreement we would be able to talk everything out and be better than we were before. He was always a sweet heart to me and his family and I are awfully close. 5 days ago we went to a water park with a couple of friends for the first time. Seeing that I have strict parents, this was the first time they let me go to a place that was far away from home with a bunch of people they didn’t know, given our country’s crime rate. They trusted him and he knew that. In the water park, everything was amazing. We went on slides, pools and we had a good road trip all together. However, this was also his first time going to an event like that with a girlfriend. The legal age to consume alcohol and smoke cigarettes in my country is 18 and we are both legal to do so. Personally, I’m not a fan of smoking and I do not consume alcohol but he does both of these things. Before we went to the water park, I had asked him to not smoke but he could drink alcohol. I’m less bothered by alcohol than I am with smoking. As per my request, he agreed and did not smoke even with his friends doing it there. When we came home around 7pm, we still spent time with each other. We cuddled and enjoyed each other’s company until my parents came to pick me up. The next day, he was distant. He didn’t call and didn’t message me like he would in the morning. I called him to see what was going on because the previous day was amazing and this behavior was very sudden. He said that going to the water park made him realize that he wasn’t ready for a relationship. He said that he was sorry and he loved me so much but he just isn’t ready to continue a relationship just yet. My heart broke and I cried buckets. I asked him if there was another girl and he promised me that there wasn’t and he still had feeling and love for me. I asked him to promise to come back to me and he did. It has been 4 days since and I have been in contact with him for at least 10 minutes each day. It’s hard to cope with and I’m still confused as to why he isn’t ready after having been in the relationship for some time. How do I deal with seeing him elsewhere, not knowing where he is or if he’s okay? Link to comment
