I’ve been dating my boyfriend for around 4.5 years. We started out happy and fine but for the past year I can tell my feelings have been changing. I’ve changed a lot as time’s gone on and he hasn’t.
I’ve been feeling unhappy in our relationship for a while now and I just try to brush it off, but now it’s really taking a toll on me. I’m constantly unhappy and stressed anytime I think about my relationship. I just don’t think we’re right for each other at all. We have nothing in common and we’re just awkwardly and uncomfortably different. It’s hard to explain but I just don’t feel the same as I used to, and I’m simply not happy.
Everyone I’ve talked to has told me to do what makes me happy, or to break up with him. I honestly would do this but he’s recently practically begged me to stay with him. He says he needs me. I know he’d be better off without me but he won’t seem to think so no matter what I say.
