why do I put up with this?
I had a fight with my boyfriend of over three years and now he’s just ignoring me. I call him and he doesn’t answer. Doesn’t return calls. Outright ignores me on IM. He used to tell me that he didn’t love me, because the concept of “love” didn’t really register with him as meaning anything, but that he did “have feelings.” A few months ago, after breaking up, we got back together and all of a sudden he was telling me that he loved me. Everything was going good, but then we had a fight about something retarded and he’s ignoring me. He does this every time we fight, and I feel like it’s entirely disrespectful. Most of the time I get mad because of something he did, then I threaten not to talk to him, so then he just doesn’t talk to me and I end up crawling back to him. No apologies ever. I know this is f’d up and yet I continue to try and contact him whenever he does this. There are plenty of other guys who want to go out with me, and yet I’m hung up on this guy, because we get along so well. We’re like best friends normally, but then a dispute happens and it’s like I don’t exist anymore. Why can’t I leave this guy alone?
