How do you know when it is time to say goodbye? Time to throw in the towel? My girlfriend and I have been together for would be a year next week, but we just had another horrible fight with us both saying we want out. What are the signs, that you really can't work out your problems and that you really should quit? I love this girl to death, i would give her my right hand if i had too, and i know she would too, but the fighting is so much and so often lately, it is so hard to deal with. We have been having the same problems resurface in different ways, I am a very emotional person that needs a lot of love and affection, but i give it all back. I think about her always, and try to find little things i can do that will make her smile everyday. I have always been like this, even in past relationships, and while i know she would do anything for me, I just wish for her to do more little things for me. Over the year, she went from being a metro riding, DC Yuppie, to some how being broke with a chauffer. While i don't mind driving her to work, and to the store, and helping her out with a little money from time to time, i do mind receiving negative remarks for dropping her off late when it can't be helped, or being broke or not being willing to do whatever she wants to do, when she wants to do it. She is a great gal, she supports me all the time with school and emotionally, and does all the little stuff that you can't measure, but it is getting very hard to remember all those things, when i get nagged at for small failures to meet her expectations. I know i can be a handful at times myself. I have been depressed a lot and extremely emtoinal lately, and i know it is wearing on her. I try to keep my emotions in check, but i am a naturally sensitive guy, and i can't help it if it shows often when we argue. IMO this relationship would be fine if i could manage my emotions, and she could be more considerate about doing small things too, but lately the stress of graduating, finding a place to live and life has just been so much on both of us, that we forget to work on things we say we will. I do not want to loose her, she is my sun and moon, my best friend my everything, but I just can't continue living with the feeling of putting in more effort than she is. It is very diffiicult for me to stop caring, and stop doing all the small things for her; i love doing things for her, i love helping her and being there for her, but i can't deal with the dramatics when i fail in other aspects. It is so emotionally, draining and crushing. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
