This is a tough one but you need to follow your gut and look for a guy who fits better. Okay, okay, that was cheap of me. He may even join in their insults. All happy couples should be able to compromise. Also, sexual satisfaction cannot be the core of your relationship. Maybe this means reading relationship books together, or going to workshops as a couple. But my life, evidently, had not been good enough to share.
Ask your family and friends what they think and listen to what they have to say. This may lead him to start prohibiting you from talking to certain people. This may even escalate in physical violence if he catches you talking with the object of his jealousy. This will become a stress and chore for you if you stay with a lazy boyfriend. Have some respect for the person and end it before becoming a cheater.
Remember, having a boyfriend is more than having someone to hold hands with. Relationships take work, but it is the best work you will ever do. I know he was scared but he ignored me for 10 days instead of communicating with me. Pulling them away from who they used to be will only lead to them losing sight of their true identity, which usually leads to them withdrawing from you. If you suspect your boyfriend has this trait, you need to kick his butt to the curb fast. If most interactions and meetings with your partner leave you drained, irritated and sadder than when you are by yourself, you have to be honest with yourself and tell yourself that it is time to walk away.
Can we really blame him for this one? A controlling man will make your life impossible and you will wish you had never met the guy. If everyone around you agrees that he is a jerk, he probably is a jerk. It takes more out of you than what it gives. That is to say that both sacrifice their own personal happiness for the other.

There's a difference between giving advice and imposing ideas. When two people want to be with each other and are willing to do whatever it takes to stay with each other, nothing can get in their way. Instead of being a positive thing in your life, it may have turned into something worse. And, you need to learn how to listen to your heart and soul. We all have flaws and we see more of them as time goes on. Breaking up and getting back together once or even twice is fine, but more than that is just an emotionally draining, dysfunctional cycle.
This is the biggest reason to end the relationship. When someone controls a relationship, they expect you to follow suit and obey their decisions, thoughts and demands. I think that's just human nature. How lucky you are to have someone like him! Not doing anything to protect or defend the woman he loves turns him into a real dirt bag. If there is too much drama for you to handle, you need to hand him his walking papers. Kick him to the curb before you get yourself into really deep water. He would stop mid-sentence with me to reply to her texts.
And sometimes this just happens at random. Well, after reading these ten points, I hope the people needing this message will get the message. However, he always treated me kindly and respectfully in our relationship, and it was clear to me that he loved me very much. Some advice would be greatly appreciated. A man who is focused on making you happy.
That is by no means a healthy relationship. Sometimes, the relationship you are in has to go through many struggles before you finally get to that stage where you can say that you are both finally happy and settled. You owe it to yourself not to settle for anything less than what you deserve. Relationships get more difficult as time progresses, not easier.

You don't need anyone to point out your defects.
On rare occasions, you can work through a singular episode of cheating, but they are few and far between. A time when everyone seems to be on their best behavior. In case you are in doubt, here's a list that will help you know whether you should keep him or give him the boot. Once a cheater, always a cheater. Although some of this he might not be able to control, you deserve to be excited about making love with your boyfriend till death do you part!
