My seven-year relationship doesn't seem to be working anymore. I think there have always been problems, but since I started going out more, things have got worse. I keep thinking the grass is greener on the other side, when maybe it isn't?
My boyfriend is lovely and we get on well, but we've always stayed in a lot. Part of the reason for that was I didn't want to be tempted if I met someone else. He doesn't seem interested in my friends, what I say, or what I'm doing, and we don't have a lot to talk about anymore.
Over the past six months we've split up twice and we're about to split for a third time. When we break up I feel I'm doing the right thing, but then I worry about him and miss him so much that I end up wanting him back. Recently, I've started seeing someone else and my boyfriend has become completely paranoid. I feel so depressed and the hardest thing is that I know we both still love each other.
