Hi, I am 25 and have been in a 6 year relationship. My bf and I love each other dearly. However, throughout our relationship i have gotten nothing but disappointment and a huge problem with him not stepping up to the plate and taking charge as a man should in a relationship. I play my part as any woman would in her relationship, but i play many of his parts as well. I don’t seem to be getting the same in return…just broken promises and more talk than action. I am a woman with standards and qualifications, just like any other, and i refuse to settle for less. I have spoken to him about this but it doesn’t seem to be getting through his brain. I love my bf with all my heart, but i don’t want to be miserable in my future. I want to know that he will have my back in the future when we do decide to get married, but he isn’t showing that now; 6 years is a long time. I feel like if he doesn’t open his eyes or i don’t leave we will be a very unhappy couple with only one in love. It hurts me so much to just walk out on 6 years.
What would you do? Any advice would be highly appreciated
