I need some advice. I think my boyfriend has dumped me but as yet hasn't told me.

We went out on Saturday night for a belated Valentines Dinner. In the last week I have had the feeling he doesn't want to see me that often. He often comes to me for dinner and basically picks fights with me. Then he storms off, claiming later that we are both a bit 'sensitive'. On Saturday night, (my boyfriend does not have

I doN't tthink it was about your having a drink too many. I feel from what you've said that he just isn't man enough to break it off and tries to annoy you. Whatever the problem is please think about the real issues at hand here. Is this a man who makes you feel happy, loved and good about yourself ? Is this a man with whom you have fun with? Is this a man who treats you like a lady and the wonderful woman you are? Is this a man who you feel you can trust and rely on even when things are perfect?
If you can't truthfully answer yes to all of those questions then my suggestion would be to really take a close look at the relationship and explain to yourself why it is that you don't deserve all those things. Because you do,, you need love, companionship, humor, tender loving care, and you need to know that your guy is one that can be trusted in the long haul as things are not always perfect but communication is the key. If he feels he can just storm out or off a bus and leave you sitting there, what does that tell you? You deserve better, you'll find much better, and you'll be happy and loved.

Welcome to the board :)

You don't say how long you two have been togehter as well as how old you both are?
Has this happened before where he says this about your drinking ?
