My boyfriend is a sweet guy who I know is head over heels (as am I) but is a bit of an ass sometimes and his communication is really 💩. To his credit, he does try to change certain damaging behaviors (we both do) but he will fall into old habits before progressing again.
He has problems on all fronts and I suspect he didn't get an exam he just wrote but he hasn't said anything to me. He confides in me a lot.
We got into it over some callous thing he did and his social media habits. He said I deserve better which I took as the classic "it's not you it's me" and figured he's been lining up someone because that's usually the case. I said let's end it then to which he replied "I cannot leave this relationship". 🤔.
Why would he say this if he doesn't want to end it?
