The fact he is using that as an excuse I would recommend seeking help for your boyfriend. He is using something that will lure you in and never let you leave. If this is not what you feel, let him know, trust someone to talk about this so it doesn't happen. People tend to find ways to lure you in a bad way. It's great hes expressing but I feel like you were caught off guard cause it might of been to soon, or u just weren't ready. If you feel like you can't handle this kind of relationship, move on, Nothing will ever come to it if your just making him happy when your not happy. It just doesn't go one way so think about it, his actions speak very loud. Seek help, I beg you if you want to try and get out. Go for advice, see what you can do. Think about it. Don't be trap in a relationship where your being control. It should never be like that. hope this helps. Good luck, you know the right answers. We can only support you and hope you make a really good decision.
