Customer Question

I always obsess over my boyfriend and in a way it drives him away because I always seem to have him to be there for me. I want to learn to have a life outside of him and not feel like I am missing out on anything without being with him. Is there a solution
for this? Thank you!

When you say you need to have him always near do you mean in his free time or 24/7 regardless of work and obligations?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No in his free time
Expert:  Jen Helant replied 2 years ago.

How long have you both been together? We're you this way with past boyfriends or just with him?

What do you enjoy doing without him?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
no just with him and i like to watch tv but i get upset when he gets into his little bubble and doesnt seem to be into me as much. I have been with him a year and a half and i dumped him once then got back and then he dumped then we got back and then he dumped me again and we got back. just yesterday he said he loves me but today when he got called into work he got into a little circle of his and wouldnt talk to me as much and i just wonder why is he like this with me
