    Me and my boyfriend have ben dating for a year and two months. It never seems like he cares… He will make plans and at the last moment cancel them. Ill be sad and ask to talk to him but he will say “im busy” or “Im tired”. No matter how long its been since ive seen him or what we are doing or if its our anniversary, He will leave to go hang out with his brothers… And when we are on the phone he wont talk… ill just be talking and asking him questions and he will respond “yes, no, okay, oh ok, oh yea”. He never talks to me and I feel so alone… He wont hang out with me on holidays because of his family (they donnt even celebrate holidays) What do I do?

    My BF keeps telling me that I’m not allowed to talk AT ALL, to my ex, we are just friends I sware, but he won’t stop telling me to, I had to unfriend him on everything, I’m not even allowed to make eye contact with him. My ex, is just my friend, he’s someone I can talk to about anything, but I don’t have any feeling for him, I just enjoy talking to him, all my “friends” keep telling my BF everytime I talk to my EX, it’s just confusing me, and I can’t tell anyone really, please help, thanks

      I see where you’re coming from because I couldn’t understand why my bf didn’t want me talking to my ex of 3 years , but after a while I came to understand that he’s my ex and I had to understand where my bf was coming from , I mean I wouldn’t want him being friends with all his past girlfriends , I mean you’ve been involved with that person (sexually or not) I just think if you want a healthy relationship you need to stop talking to him sorry “/. And where you might see your ex as a friend you’re ex might not. And if your friends are doing that to you , then their not very good friends because it’s none of their business. Hope this helped :)

    Met my last bf who became my b oss where I volunteer, hes 9 yrs older. Very smart in some ways, never was any attraction, I lived with him 2 yrs s ince I had no where to live-hes very difficult in alot of ways, he fired 2 people at work, hes high on himself but is not attrative, hes overweight and disabled-he knocked me down for 2 yrs, cut off my 2 friends, lied behind my back to my sister and family hardly called, would buy a few things then never let me forget what he bought me, turned the landlord on me that I caused all the fights (it was him for hrs screaming and throwing things so I woul dhave to leave for hrs and return), is extremely jealous that he got my previous ex fired at his job, has me watched when I go to a mall shopping, accuses me of cheating if i get a text, gets me a laptop then complains when im on it, wont let me watch tv other than news, wont allow me to cook but complains when im about to eat and it turns into a huge fight of stuff in his mind that i complained and wanted it at a set time, makes me his slave for evertying and there is little thanks (do all his laundry, grocery shopping, help at his work for free, do all his coupons and computer stuff as hes visually impaired incluidng taking computers in snowstorms on buses to deliver them. … get blamed for everyti ng that is broken or missing in his place, at times all my stuff is piled up beside my bed for no reason, he goes into hissy fits and breaks many things and says im the one with issues.

    Been with a guy for a year now. He gets jealous. He gets mad. He assumes, he questions, he doesnt trust, he doubts. I always think, “i dont need him. i can do bad by my damn self. How great my life would be without him.” And then he always knows how to calm me down and become the perfect lover. Straight make me forget what we fighting about. But dammit. when he says i cant do something i say he cant either. If he dont want me chilling with my girls on saturday. He sure as hell aint gonna chill with his boy either. I grew a pair and fought back. i still am. Learn how to box if his dumb ass wanna slap you or hit you. If a 16 year old girl can take a 50 year old dad with boxing skills, im pretty sure a woman can take a man. Women aint weak we damn gangsters. Men cant hold a baby for 9 months and either cut it out of the womb or squeeze it out a small vag. Men aint sh*t. I stay with my man because we finally made it to the point where we can make it work. He dont act like a punk and i dont act like a puta. If you arnt happy with yo lover, reality check holmes, there are 7,271,093,5… people in this world. There isnt just 1 person out there for you, theres plenty to experiment with till you find “mr right.” Or you could even be happy with “mr right now.” Go! Your waisting time!

  • Jaxz

    Ive been in a few bad relationships, in my last relationship it lasted for a year and 6 months and that was the worst relationship ive ever had. In the tims span of that relationship i suffered a severe concussion, 2 broken ribs, a broken wrist, and a sprained ancle. He was also extremely jealous, im a surfer and all of my friends are guys that i surf with. He was so jealous that i wasnt allowed to talk to them without his permission, and even though he didnt surf, u waznt allowed to surf with my team unless he was present. He also tried to change me and i let him. It got to the point that i had to wear what he wanted, i couldnt wear the bikinis i wanted, it got to the point that i couldnt even listen to the music i wanted! I dont know why i let it get so bad, but dont make the same mistake i made, if your guy is treating you like property instead of the princess you are, call it off, because i promise there are so many guys who would love to be with a beautiful women just like you!

  • shawnna

    You have to go and leave him for good. He will break you down till you have no energy or strengh to think better choices. I am still love my boyfriend and it’s been 6 months of healing just recovering and of course going to Theraphy. I had been alone for 3 years and divorced,when I met my boyfriend . I thought at the time he was cute and something of him attracted me. All the signs were there but I was too busy just loving this new thing and feeling like a teenager. Then when intimacy came I was falling for him but he at times was very cold. He got into an accident and I took care of him and beign more involved taking him to his medical appointments,giving him his medication. He needed me there so I thought as a women I put him first. He took advantage of myself and dignity,he had already figured me out and trust me when they know they have you in control its going to get worse. Because of his accident he lost his job and accepted a job in a different state. Never thought about me at all after I help him move in less than 2 months he wanted me to move with him and I did. I met Lucifer and a twisted but caring person all in the mixed. Worst nightmare I was beign more controlled and was not allowed to go anywhere with out him, he treated me so bad called me names , yelled at me and started ignoring me even when I dress pretty he would not say nothing. He had already put his hands on me and I hold on 1 more week to get out. He demanded sex wether I wanted or not just to satisfy his needs. I left him for good and came back to my hometown broken but I rather go through the steps and love myself n heal. Before I let any man back in my life. I learn don’t accept any bad behavior from the start.. By the way he was going out with other women while I was with him and when I wasn’t. So the man thought he won a trophy girlfriend..nope I became smarter yet was very deep in love. You can get out if you value yourself.

  • gina

    I feel the same way toom

  • Lily

    My bf is nice n sweet only when he wants to be. Sometimes I try to be super nice to see if he will be just as nice back but no. He only does what he wants when he wants to do it. It doesn’t matter how I feel.. If I say anything to him about my feelings….He tells me to stop complaining n how I am lucky to have him but never how lucky he is to have me. We’ve been together for 4 yrs now n lately things have been bad. We argue ALL the time…about anything n everything….He doesn’t appreciate anything anymore. He used to compliment me on my cooking n the way I look but not anymore. He used to have cute nick names for me but that has stopped. I feel like it will only get worse…n I need to just move on. I’m scared cuz I care n I have put a lot of work into the relationship…but I don’t think I can take it anymore. I’m heart broken that he can’t/won’t open his eyes n see how badly I am mistreated by him. He’s too busy to see. I am too tired of being verbally abused n just treated like a maid. :(

    I knew when the ex would always run away from any fight. never wanted to make up and somehow was so mean. that I made him act that way and how I never knew how to let things rest. I started to believe it was me, until my closest people notice how he always blamed me and took days to get over “it” and would be cold towards me…. but one day after six months we got back together after leaving the first time because of his jerk ways, I noticed he never wrote anything on our one picture on his social media site but would for others? me and my girl.. nope nothing. like I was some random girl he took a pic with. and when I expressed how upset I was.. I was called crazy and bipolar and that’s why I couldn’t keep a man??? yup… ugh.. I stayedfor almost two months after that.. it got worse! telling me I wanted a puppy when I mentioned how he was being cold and mean. everything I saw he got defensive, I never felt heard and no compromised was met. but everything was me. I always complained I was never happy and holy fuck don’t I ever give it a rest. in other words I could never get support or love when needed. he barely told me he lovedme and when asked he flipped it on me… awful! the last time I told him how I felt I can hear his sigh of annoyance… I cried and never responded to his messages again… I DISAPPEARED!

    Yes I have had a bad boyfriend and it was his sarcasm which put me off him.
    The guy was always making sarcastic comments about me being “full of crap”, criticizing my cooking, housekeeping & calling me “some random person he met” even after we had been seeing each other for more than 6 months. It was terrible and I woyld break it off but then continued to keep taking him back each time he would apologise, hoping he would change but he didn’t.
    Life’s too short to spend time with people who treat you bad and make you feel worthless.

    • me

      What to do if your boyfriend is mean to you, get away now, imagine how you want to be treated, and you will eventually hook up with mr nice guy it will depend on how dedicated you are in the imagination proccess.

    My mom, dad, and brother all dislike my boyfriend. My mom is actually very understanding and has been cool about a lot of things. But from the very beginning, he’s told some tales that may or may not be true and my mom thinks somethings off. Like he said he works for the CIA, his dad (who’s dead now) trained him to be a sniper, he was late to pick me up one evening and said some guy blocked him in the road with his car, came over to his car and started screaming at my boyfriend. My BF got out of the car and started beating him up. He told my mom this in a matter of fact way and that he “probably broke all his ribs”. he said the guy wasn’t on drugs because “I can tell. I know the signs to look for.” And just last night he “had to make a drop and exchange information” and wanted me to go with him because he didn’t trust these guys. He says they’re Russians, and Frenchmen. And the only way to get out of this “business” was to move away. My mom thought if he was really in the CIA, he wouldn’t be telling anyone in the first place and he also wouldn’t be putting his girlfriend in harms way. He says he speak 20 different languages, but I haven’t heard him speak but a few things and I wouldn’t recognize whether or not he would be speaking accurately. We’ve been dating for almost 7 months and I really love him and he loves me. He’s told my mom he could move as close as two states away (to get out of the CIA business) and he and I could visit. I really don’t want to move. What do you think? Is he off?

    • YESGirl

      By the way you speak about him, it pretty clear to me that, yeah, hes just lying to you to make a good impression.
      Do not move sway with him!

  • to not impressed

    Maybe it’s because you don’t make them feel wanted enough?
    If not, then really their fault. Heh

    While some of these hold merit, some of these are total bs. Because I’ve been honest with my girlfriends, supportive, their friends and family like me but they all end up cheating on me… why not do an article about that? Top 10 reasons not to cheat on your bf.

    • Skyler

      That goes the other way too, you know. Bf’s are just as bad at cheating as gf’s.
      If the should make anything it should be; “Top 10 reasons you shouldn’t cheat on your lover”
