    I'm 22 and have been with my boyfriend for about a year. He is travelling (3 months have passed. It will be 6 Months in total).
    I love him but one minute I want to be with him and the next I don't.
    I can't see him being 'the one', so in my head I think I have convinced myself that I am wasting my time. Whereas he tells me that he thinks about 'our future', daily.
    I really don't know where I stand with my feelings. It's been going on for a while. (I can't talk to him, he is a little paranoid and very emotional). Myself on the other had, I find it hard to show.talk about my feelings, hence why I am online writing to complete strangers, searching for an answer.

    I feel a little trapped. I can't end things because I am going away with him (it's already booked) and I'm 98% sure it will be fine again once we're together. I just can't understand why I feel this way?!

    (I am not on any medication/the pill/pregnant etc)

    Maybe I'm just nuts? :')

    You dont have to decide anything now, i would make a decision once you've seen him in person again.

    Being apart has made you think he is not the one.
    See how you feel when you are with him and if you still feel unhappy then talk to him.
