I think it's clear that you & Steve don't want the same things out of a relationship.

Thank you for your reply.

You do need to talk to him, it doesn;lt sound like you two are on the same page at all. He sounds very immature, if he has never lived on his own., I can;t imagine living with my parents. And while you may have caused yourself some difficulties, it does sound like you are supporting yourself and your daughter.

No gifts at all on Christmas and Valentines Day, no spending time getting to know his family, these are all red flags to me.

I sent him an email today, because I am tired of repeating myself on the things I want.

Hi nhcoffeegirl, I agree with all that has been said to you so far.

Now, about this email.

Regardless of you too wanting the same thing in the short term or not, what seems strange to me is that after 10 months you haven't met anyone from his family, especially if he's close to them and you're "his girl".

In your post you don't mention any reaction on his part to your unhappiness, not sure if he didn't provide any explanations or if you just didn't write them here.

As for his responses to me to being unhappy and what not, he always says he doesn't like seeing me unhappy, and will say or do something for like two days that will make me very happy, but will just go right back to what he was doing to make me unhappy.

I broke up with him tonight.
