I've been living with my boyfriend for almost 3 years and I am pretty much done. We both lost our jobs and even though he just got a new one things still clearly aren't working out. He developed anger issues and it seriously scares me. Hes 25 and well pretty much a failure at life and as soon as I leave hes going to loose the apartment... im more than sure. We are down to my car because our apartment complex towed his away so he won't even have a car to get anywhere. His driving scares me and he just disrespects me and I can't take much more of it. Im scared that when I leave him he will call my parents house and say terrible things and stuff like that. When I move back in with them my life will turn back to normal, I can loose some weight and go back to college. But I know the only thing that made him have a life was me. I feel so terrible wanting to leave him. What if he tries to commit suicide... I pretty much don't know what to do... so someone say something please :)

You gotta think about number one...and thats you...especially if he does things that scare you...hes sounds like hes goin downhill and draggin u with him...just leave and dont worry what he says to your parents...they know u better than he does and will know if hes talkin crap...3 yrs is long enough for this crap...get out before its 5 yrs and your livin in a homeless shelter just because you were afraid of what he'll do...your young..beautiful and have your whole life ahead of you...sorry to b so blunt...but lose the loser.

Pretty much when I think about leaving him I think about more what he will miss out on than me. I make his lunches and stuff... I bought all the groceries I fixed up our apartment... and he will be left here alone crying one day and I wont be there to tell him it's okay because I will be the cause of it... I will be lonley but I will get through it without barely even a scratch... and for him it will be EVERYTHING...

This is probably what he needs...a lil shot of reality...somethin to make him pull up his boots...and get his sh*t together...your lucky u dont have kids...hes a big boy...hes gotta deal with life...and b a man.
