He was the love of my life watch

    My boyfriend of 5 years finished with me last night. We have never had sex as I am a virgin and had an extreme fear of my first time. He was upset and did it by phone, that annoyed me though as its seems cowardly. I understand why he ended it, it is a long time to wait and be patient and he tried to make me relax but I always put it off. I went to counselling but it was only 10 sessions and cannot afford to go to Relate.

    It had got bad in the end where he no longer saw friends, was diagnosed with depression and his bedroom used to be immaculate and now it is as bad as How Clean Is Your House. I know all the signs were there and I feel bad I neglected him. It got to the stage where he was scared to touch me as the rejection made him repulse his self.

    I am upset as I love him so much but this stupid fear took over my life and ruined it. One day I want children so will have to overcome this. I don't know if I will get him back this time as we have ended it before but this time he said we need to find the right people. Please help.

    How'd you feel if someone rejected you contantly for 5 years? Fella deserves a medal for waiting that long. This seems very insensitive and I'm sorry, but you might want to let him go his own way and find someone that can help him get back his confidence in general, as..(again I'm sorry) it seems as you're the main reason for his depression.

    You'll get no sympathy from the scumbags on here. Without patronising you, good for you for waiting. Don't be pressured. He doesn't deserve you.

    You waited 5 years? Whilst that's impressive in itself, I think the only way you're going to get him back now is to sleep with him.

    Or, you could REALLY piss him off and sleep with some random person tonight, and then tell him.

    5 years waiting, and the first night free you broke it.

    (I do NOT endorse the latter option here; if you want him back, try the former. If you want him back do NOT try the latter).

    We are both 24. I feel awful I have destroyed his confidence, I am trying to stay strong but I am worried he won't take me back saying I have promised to change too many times but haven't.

    You will never in your life find a better person to lose your virginity for. Go and get him back. And **** him. You will like it.

    Not neccessarily.
    It's a fact that sex really helps relationships, creates a new level of intimacy that sexless relationships cannot have.

    Sorry but reality check here, 5 years! He invested 5 years, its not shallow or selfish, sex is an important part of an adult relationship, and neglecting someone sexually and rejecting them for 5 years is appalling

    Any guy that waits 5 years and 10 sessions is a ****ing saint to my mind - shouldn't have done it over the phone mind

    Only person that can help is you - you just have to realise that it's a natural thing and that if/when your body is ready for it you should open yourself up to the idea of sexual pleasure and sexual companionship

    Booze and fruity thoughts will help, there's no point 'going for it' till you're open to the idea and/or preferably having sexual thoughts/urges yourself though. If that doesn't look likely for the time being you're best off letting him go (for now) and waiting for the day..

    you've already made the first step by saying 'was' the love of my life instead of 'is'
    btw you don't know what you're missing tbh, sex is amazing & relationships NEED intimacy and effection. Otherwise it's just like being friends, see yes you both obv had stronger feelings then you would have with a friend, but how can you have them feelings and not act upon them and express them to each other. seriously sex can be sometimes exciting and fun but also its making love if you're with someone you truly love and care about.
