Every time, there's a problem ( no matter big or small ), or I'm sad, not smiling enough, etc so not in a good mood, really, my boyfriend threatens to break up with me. He immediately says things like "I'm gonna break up with you if you don't stop", "I don't want to be with you anymore", "There's plenty of girls waiting in line for me, so be careful how you behave", "I can replace you in a day", etc. He doesn't leave, tho, or if he leaves, he comes back. But this kind of attitude and things he says, make me feel really bad, unsure and unloved, because it's like I'm no different than the rest and easily replacable. I've explained this, we've talked, but his response is "if you don't like it, we don't need to be together". I really like him and don't wanna break things off, but I don't know if his attitude is some kind of a power game or he truly doesn't give a sh*t about me. What do you think?

It's definitely a power game thing. He's absolutely terrified of losing you. If he doesn't like you that much and if he has all these other girls lined up he would have split with you by now. My advice would be to call his bluff. Next time he threatens you with this tell him "fine then. If you're going to dump me then dump me." His reaction will probraly be to ask you if you want to break up. He'll dance around the point and turn the conversation into you ending it with him. Turn it around and tell him if he wants to be with you he has to stop threatening you with this.1
