I've been with my girlfriend for four years now. She is my first and only lover and my first long term relationship. I love her more than words can describe. In the past year things have only gone down hill though. Up until 2 months ago she had a nasty video game habit that took up ALL of her spare time(this lasted for about 7 months). This put a huge strain on us. I was feeling alone and frequently had thoughts of being with someone else. Aside from that she's incredibly selfish. Nearly all conversations with her stem from the sentence starting "I want..." She's lazy, will not help with any of our responsibilities and has poor hygiene. I have to tell her to brush her teeth or shower. Sex is sparse though we have weeks where we may do it 2 times if lucky. All of this is starting to ware on me... She has since stopped the video game addiction and we have our good days. But at this point I feel less like a partner and more like a parent because of her laziness and bad habits. I'm sick of taking care of another adult to this extreme. I used to think we'd be together forever. These days I don't know. I dread the though of having a child with her because I know I'd get to do all the work! We've had so many close calls with breaking up. But when it gets to that point there's never any talking. She just cries and I end up saying we'll work it out. That's how all of our serious conversations go. I either get silence or crying. I just don't know what to do any more.
