User Submitted Advice from a 21-30 year old Female
I just have to say I was a little hurt at this. I am a girl and I am exaclty like this guy. I would always get angry at my boyfriend, I rally liked him and cared about him, but all the sudden everything he did was wrong and made me mad. I couldn't help it. We broke up for 3 months, (which is key to making it work) and everything began to makes sense. it wasn't him, it was me and i couldn't see how controlling i was when we were stuck in the relationship... the time away from each other gave me a chance to really appreciate everything I love about him and we are much happier together now. If this doesn't wotk and he is verbally or physically abusive then you should immediently get out of the relationship, but sometimes people are just stuck, some time apart would do you alot of good!
