Dating 3 months he said im smothering him
Sometimes I’m okay with how things are, but other times I get really angry, especially when my friends get on my case about it.
Our relationship is starting to suffer now because even though I say I’m fine with how things are, deep down this is really bothering me and I feel really hurt by the fact that even though I am his ‘girlfriend,’ he won’t acknowledge me in that way.
That was 4 days ago and I haven't heard from him since. Should I text him again or should I wait for him to contact me?
I don't want to smother him but I don't want him to lose interest either.
He texted me last Monday to tell me he was going for knee surgery on Thursday and then texted me the day after his surgery to let me know that everything had gone well.
I texted him a couple of days later to see how he was doing and he responded.
Me and my boyfriend got into an argument and he blurted out that he is tired of me smothering him.
“I’ve been seeing this guy for almost 6 months now.I’ve tried bringing it up and when I do he almost makes me feel guilty about it and says things like ‘what we have is so special, why do we have to label it?’ I know he had a painful breakup with his girlfriend before me which I think might be a part of this, so I’m trying to be understanding but I don’t think one thing should have anything to do with the other.I guess the simple answer as to why he won’t call you his girlfriend is because he doesn’t have to. Smothering, ultimately, isn’t about love, but about selfishness.
