    My boyfriend almost broke up with me last week but we're in a sort of limbo where he said he would give it another chance but we haven't really talked this week apart from me calling him briefly twice.
    I'm so stressed as my dissertation is due in the next 3 weeks.
    I am heartbroken things arent't working out with my bf. All i want to do is call him. Absolutly everyone i know says I shouldn't call him. I know I should listen to them but I'm crcking up. All I've been doing the last few hours is crying. Not calling him is killing me.

    What should I do?

    I think you should call him, but only to sort it out, I know you don't want it to end but being in limbo is 10x worse, at least if its over, you can accept it and eventually move on.
    Maybe phone and ask to meet face to face? Then you can air everything out and tell him hes either with you properly or not at all. It could be he feels awkward after trying to break up with you, and needs to see you to clear the air, or unfortunately he may not want to be with you anymore, either way you need to know in order to deal with it however you need to
    I hope it works out

    Do not call him. You already have twice. If anything text him asking if he can get in touch to talk about it soon properly, but even then I would give him space. Obviously, we don't know the background story here, but if he has something to think about, then you really need to let him think about it; talking to him frequently might make it worse.

    I personally think it's really insensitive for him to put you in this position so close to your dissertation, it's one of the most stressful things of your life and he should've waited for this to be over. Like I said I don't know the full story so maybe that comment isn't appropriate, but if you did want to get in touch with him you could be like 'Listen this is a really difficult and stressful time for me because of my dissertation and I would really appreciate some communication right now, are we going to stay together or not? I need to be able to focus on my work and I can't right now when I don't know where I stand with you.' If he is decent he should give you an answer quickly.
