I haven't been single for more than a few weeks since I was in high school (I'll be 27 later this month).

Can I be honest with you?

I was seeing a counselor at school last semester (not about this, though), but he never wanted to talk about anything other than school, but I think that's good advice- I can see if they have another counselor I can see.

That's great!

About what to do in order not to feel overwhelmed...have you thought about talking to a counselor about this? There has to be something going on that maybe you aren't aware of that makes you either feel bored in a relationship or overwhelmed. Sometimes sitting down with someone can help figure out what's causing the problem.

Maybe you're not ready for a relationship yet. If you've never been single for longer than a few weeks, maybe you should take some time for yourself and figure out what you want and need out of a relationship. It sounds like your boyfriend is a really great guy. Is he willing to take things slow and see what happens?
