My boyfriend keeps saying that school is more important than me. I totally understand the importance of education. I'm in University as well and it is very important to me but I wouldn't go as far as telling him that he's less important. It really hurt me when he said that. He means it too. What am I suppose to do? I talked to him about it and he says that school is just more important than me. Then why doesn't he just dump me and focus on school? ughh so confusing.

"Then why doesn't he just dump me and focus on school?"
If he said that you were more important than school would you expect him to drop out and focus his attention solely on you? Of course not... right? It's entirely possible to have multiple important things in one's life at the same time.
That being said, it was a dick thing to say because it implies you're not very important to him, which may or may not be true. Guy should've qualified your importance to him. But since he didn't do that you're either not very important to him or he's not that emotionally intelligent. I might reconsider your relationship.2

School is his definite future, you are his maybe future.0
