My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost 6 months. We've had a pretty good relationship, and we've been happy, despite a few hiccups we've had in the past. Both of his parents are dead, and having to understand that when it comes to family things has been hard. For instance, it took him a long time (a lot of avoiding and being indirect) to have him come around to meet my family and him taking him a while to meet his extended family. We also had a rough patch about his living situation next year, as he's living with his best friend (male) and a girl who is a dancer.
We've been disagreeing on certain things like his forgetfulness, whether or not its intentional. I've tried talking to him about it several times, and he does apologize and tries to make it up to me, but it keeps occurring. I thought brekaing it off would work, but both times I tried he insisted on working it out and making amends and I agreed because deep down I didn't want to do it. It got to the point where I said I wanted some time away from him because it was stressing me out. He didn't answer. A day or so later, I asked him if he wants to work on things or just break up and he said "break up or not i still want to be friends and be there for you. let's have fun today and go to this party with my best friend and we can just not think about it". I took that as a roundabout break up and asked him to get his things.
When he came to my place on Saturday, he said he doesn't think it's going to work out and that he did respond to my text when I said I needed space, and he said that that particular situation was a misunderstanding and maybe space for a day would work. I felt horrible and said I didn't want to break up, and I begged him to work things out and he said no, it'll happen again and he's not sure what he wants out of his life right now all of a sudden. He finally said he just needs to think for a few days and he would tell me in person what he decides. Is it over?

wow can i ask were you manipulating him or just really naive here? I mean you keep pushing him away of course he is going to leave!!!
He has nobody else but his friends and you and you keep pushing him away. ever thought he is scared to lose you but you keep showing him a possibility so he will go elsewhere and find someone who wants to stick with him and not threaten him with a break up every 5 minutes?2
