We're both 22 and have been together since high school. We decided to go to college together although he didn't plan on going, so it was kind of just him following me. He's in a good major, though we are both going to end up in debt; him more so than me.
I don't feel comfortable in this relationship anymore. There is no passion, and most of the time, I feel suffocated and unhappy even in my own apartment. I feel like I'm moving in a different direction. I want to mature and grow but it's hard with him around.
I can't bring myself to tell him I want to move on. We own everything together (furniture, etc), and we've always done everything together. I just can't understand how I'm supposed to tell him that everything he tried to give me wasn't enough. I feel like I'm just throwing him out in the dirt to fend for himself. And I know he has to grow on his own as well, but I feel so guilty. Too guilty to make the leap.
Does anyone else have a similar experience they went through? Are long relationships always so effin hard to end?
