Should I leave my boyfriend

I have been with my boyfriend nearly three years, and before we started dating I liked him for little over a year. When we first started dating, I thought he was the greatest in the world, I thought that i ddint deserve him, I'd fear that he would meet someone better and end up leaving me. As the time went on I noticed things I never knew about him, for over a year he would go through my phone, contantly ask me questions, tell me he dosent trust me, ignore me for other girls and I eventually found out he kept secrets from me. I never saw anyguy besides him, he's the love of my life. But he's put me through so much , I try talking to him about my emotions but everytime I do that he puts me down . I can talk about my problems with everyone but him . Recently I met a guy and hes everything i want my boyfriend to be . HE defends me , understands me , and is open with me unlike my boyfriend . The guy has been trying to form a realtionship with me for over a year , but i still deny him . The more I talk to the guy the more I like him and the less I like my boyfriend . Everyone tells me that my relationship is unhealthy but I dont want to leave my boyfriend, at the end of the day I love him, but it hurts to love him at the same time . What do I do

Hi Anonymous,

Well, no one can make up your mind about this situation but you. Although, by writing it out..I think you already made up your mind to stay with your current boyfriend as you mentioned at the end of your post.

I would not drag both men around, make your decision and stick by your decision. No relationship is perfect and everyone on the outside can look in and pin point what they think is good or "bad" but in reality, none of us wear your shoes.


I am sure you will make an informed decision. Good luck.
