    Ok, so I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for just over a year now. He is 18 and I am 17. To start with things were amazing, I loved him so much. But things have just got so clingy. He texts me all day and if I don't text him as soon as I wake up or something he will get so annoyed and say I don't love him. I've tried telling him I don't understand why we have to text all day everyday or talk on the phone every half an hour but he doesn't seem to get it.

    He does so many things that annoy me - only small things but still annoying. Like not bothering to spell things properly, being generally unorganised, being arrogant etc. And he acts more like my dad than my boyfriend. I can never talk to another guy, even the ones I have been best friends with for years, without him coming over and accusing me. I have had to stop seeing all my old friends because he 'doesn't like them'.

    I don't think my parents like him either and loads of people just find him annoying.

    I know this seems pointless posting, but I just want some advice. He loves me so much and I don't want to hurt him because he is the most loving guy I know. But I just don't think I love him anymore.

    And this is going to sound really selfish, but I'm off to uni next year and I don't want to be tied down in a relationship that I really don't see lasting in the future.. :/

    Long answer: Just be selfish to be kind; I can't believe you'd have to stop seeing your friends for a guy That's awful. You'd be helping each other to end things with him, i.e. stop his paranoia over who you talk to, and relieve you of all the things he does and actually find someone who trusts you without making your life a misery!

    Short answer: GET RID.

    A break up seems to be the best thing you can do.

    "He texts me all day and if I don't text him as soon as I wake up or something he will get so annoyed and say I don't love him" - Sounds like something a 12 year old would do. He sounds like childish, insecure man. It sounds like you're sick of him too.

    hey. If you're not happy, there is no point. You'll end up losing the people who care most, like your friends, and if he dumps you then you could be left with no one to help you cope. If you don't love him then you could start to get really upset and not being able to talk to people is a bad thing. Everyone needs to talk to people. It's just the way we are. Uni is a big step and you are going to want to socialise! Maybe it's time to move on. I know you don't want to hurt him, but you have a life of your own to live and you'll go out on Friday nights and get hammered! =D . but you may get accused of cheating or being unfaithful, when you know you're not. It's a hard thing to do, but you'll get through it. And in the end, you'll be happy.

    hope this helped x

    Leave him, cause the very moment you'll be leaving for uni, he'll start making a hell out of your life. Arguments on hourly basis, offenses, etc. and I bet he'll end up cheating on you, and won't see it as wrong, cause of ****ing male moral relativism... Run! Textbook example.

    This relationship is turning unhealthy and controlling. You need to dump him for the sake of yourself and him.
