How to Break Up:
Don't Be Afraid
My boyfriend and I have been together for nearly three and a half years. Some would wonder as to why the two of us have settled down at such a young age, and they're right! Things should have ended about a year and a half ago, when things really started to go downhill. Our sex life has gone down the drain, he no longer shows any affection, we argue about everything, and he's just plain grumpy all the time. I don't feel like I have anymore of his respect, and I don't know why. Breakups are heart wrenching and absolutely horrible to experience, but sometimes, a relationship just won't work. I feel like I am growing more into a woman, and he is still stuck in boyhood. He feels he is invincible and the future is far away. We have come close to breaking up plenty of times, but we always end up agreeing to "work" on it. Everything is usually nice and splendid for about a week, then its back to the old bitter couple. It just isn't worth it. I am constantly worrying about whether or not something I'm going to say is going to upset him. He's like a time bomb. All day and every day. To make things worse, I practically abandoned my friends and grew close to his friends. Now if we break up I'll be left with nobody. That used to scare me, but not anymore. I am much more ambitious now and I know I am a friendly person who does not have a difficult time making friends. There are just so many problems that we both have, we've just simply grown apart.
Don't think the rest of your life is going to hell because you spent such a large chunk of your life with them. It's better to leave them rather than waste anymore of your time. Honestly, after this relationship, I no longer believe in soul mates.
