My boyfriend is slipping away from me - what should I do?

  • He behaved a lot like my ex did. Lol, you think having a fight two months after dating is bad... try a week. I'm the type who cools off immediately after I understand where the miscommunication went wrong. My ex? COMPLETELY more emotional than I was. Not crying or anything like that, but shaken up enough that he DEF. distances himself from me, enough that I broke up with him.

    You should date someone who reacts to fights better than he does and who's more understanding, and optimistic. He sounds like a really sensitive guy but not in a way that's beneficial for both of you. I was just about to say he was way too idealistic when I read a blip of Neberle's comment. He's right. I mean think about it... what does this guy do when he gets in disagreements with his friends... cut them off? Like he can't handle anybody ever being angry? Plus, I'm sure your foul mood couldn't be any worse than my temper. Then again, you did say you don't get to spend a lot of time together. So that leaves room for him to idealize you a LOT since he's not used to your mannerisms quite yet.

    Chalk it up to your first fight, and if he breaks up with you move on and find somebody else 'cause it wasn't worth the effort in the first place for that minor of a deal.

  • This is called buyers remorse he was head over heels in love with a perfect girl... then he found out you aren't perfect. This is more his problem than yours. I would say that you should stop contacting him completely if he contacts you than great he has decided to be a man and accept that you aren't perfect but like you anyway. Or he can be a little wimp and keep looking for a perfect girl. If he leaves he isn't as great as he seemed when you met him.

    Now the other part of this is do not forget this event. The blip that resulted in him being a drama queen might happen again and again. If it does than you can't trust him to not just leave you for no reason or the first time something serious happens.

  • Brace for impact.

  • dear lou lou, what was the quarrel that you had all about...? and did you hurt him with words that day?

    i don't know if my guy have a snappy mood I would back off for a while and see where our relation is going... but if it was the first time, I think that both of you should move on and don't make a big deal out of it.

    but if he wants some space give it to him...i hope things will be great for you

  • Try your best to make it work..f you "back off" he'll slip away from you..tell him how much you like/love him and you enjoy being with him. Be nice to him, show him you're mature..and treat him nicely.

    Good luck :)
