    I'm mostly writing this because I think I'm in need of an outsiders opinion. I have been having a lot of thoughts of breaking up with my boyfriend and they just come on really suddenly and I'm not sure why because because he's so lovely and sweet and looking at how messed up a lot of people's relationships are I feel so lucky to be with him. But I still get these thoughts and I do wonder if some part of me does want out, like I'm 18 and I feel like I've settled down in a long lasting relationship too fast (2 years) and I haven't had any time to experiment or meet new people, he's my first boyfriend. Also we haven't been very sexually active for a very long time and I just don't feel that way the majority of the time but maybe that's just me I'm not sure. I know this would crush him and I don't want to hurt him because I do love him and he's so sweet but I'm just confused and I don't know if this is what I want right now. Especially with university coming up and everything but yeah tell me what you think.

    In my experience, these thoughts just sit and brew and built up until it turns messy!
    You two have been together a reasonably long time, let him know how you are feeling, tell him that you don't know if you actually want to break up or there is just something else underlying.
    perhaps you two can come to an agreement on a short break or something?

    Hope all is well!
