Need a Break From Boyfriend

Not open for further replies.


Hello everyone,

Lately I have been overwhelmed with alot of things and find it hard to put on a happy face for my boyfriend. I don't want him to worry about me. I don't want to cause him more stress.

He just doesn't understand depression. My friends say he is in love with me, but I am not sure where my feelings are. I am not sure I want to be with anyone right now. Maybe I am just scared. He also has a son who has ADHD, so his son is very hyper. I find my patience is very thin right now, so can't deal with his son when he has him.

I am not sure how to tell my bf all this. Just feel like I need a break from everything before I say something I will regret.
Guys rarely know whats going on. (I are one). From my perspective just telling him the truth, from your heart would be the best way. It will hurt him esp. the part about his son but if he knows your speaking from the heart he should understand. This is just my 2 cents. Good luck
I agree with Terry. Whilst women have this magical power to read males minds and feelings, we males do not have the same power over you females. If you don't talk to him, he will just think everything is all rosey and life is good.
