My boyfriend(age 30) and i (age 27) have been dating for 5

Customer Question

My boyfriend(age 30) and i (age 27) have been dating for 5 years (off and on). Some times he's nice and loving with me and shows me attention and others he says he doesn't want to "deal with me". Just recently we got back together after a 3 month split. He came crawling back with a promise ring 3 months ago and said he took me for granted and he promised he would always work to make things good between us. In the past he would disappear for a few days and not want to talk or text or call or see me because he needed his time away. He would also get so mad at me and cause a huge scene over something small and it cause me to get emotional and cry and he would say he can't deal with my feelings and storms out. Within the past 3 months we have been back together things have been great. He's been supportive, loving, caring, we've had fun together... just perfect. so i started to fall for him again. As soon as i say i will move in with him and he knows he has me back for good, he starts the same stuff all over again and blames it on me. My boyfriend is on the phone texting 24/7 and i wonder who he could be texting constantly... espcially the fact that he puts his phone on silent and warns me to never touch his phone, that its his business. At night when we go to bed he keeps it in his pocket or puts it in a drawer. I don't think he would cheat cause he keeps wanting me to move in with him and he gave me a promise ring that he will ask me to marry him soon. I'm not understanding his actions. Just yesterday we took a trip to the beach for the day since we haven't been able to have alone time. (We only have one day a week off together and it consists of me following him to his families house or doing whatever he wants to do...rarely what i want and we rarely get us time). At the beach he was sitting there texting and i made a comment and said "im here too...come be with me" and he flipped out and said no one will ever try to control him and he can text if he wants to. He was so mad that he wanted to leave and didn't want to even touch me or hold my hand or understand why i said that. We ended up packing up our stuff and driving an hour home where he continued to ignore me. Every now and then i would apologise again and tell him i'm not trying to control him. He would tell me how yes i'm controlling and he will do whatever he wants. I told him his actions are hurting me and he said he don't care about my feelings. Well today is no different. Hes not being loving or understanding he blew the whole thing out of proportion so i decided to call and ask if he wanted me to come home (since we live together) or go to my old place. He said he dont want to be around me and is second guessing our relationship beacuse i wont leave him alone and stop beggin for him to act like he cares about me. I'm not understanding why someone who wants to be with me forever and move in togheter and get married one day will be so total opposite the next day. I'm so emotionally alone and hurt. I've tried to talk to him but he says he don't want to hear it because he's tried or hot or trying to relax. I don't know what to do. Please help.
