So my guy and I have dated for about 6 months. There are a couple things I'm not happy with in the relationship. He won't label us as boyfriend girlfriend. He says we're basically bf gf because we're exclusive. He still lives at home and always has to get his parents okay to do pretty much anything. I'm not expecting him to get his own place but I think he's satisfied just living at home. We only see each other once a week because he works two jobs.
He has talked to other women he met off a dating site. It's innocent but still. I don't like that he talks to them. It just seems like there is a bunch of red flags. When I've tried ending it, he'll beg me for hours to stay with him. I have feelings for him but I feel like it's dying for me because we're stuck in this state of limbo. I didn't want to break up with him over the holidays so he's not depressed but I know he bought me gifts so I plan on giving them back. Should I break up with him? I do have feelings for him but I'm tired of the way things are.

I don't think the living with parents is an issue but...
I think the not wanting to label a relationship after 6 months is an obvious red flag that he is hesitant to commit. so why is he hesitant to commit? well either it's commitment issues or he's not totally vested in the relationship
And being on a dating site while you are "exclusive" with someone should be an absolute non-starter. there is nothing innocent about talking to girls on dating sites while dating someone else. it means he's still exploring his options. It means that he is exclusive unless something better comes along which isn't in fact exclusive at all0
