In a relationship thats not a relationship
Hi Kitty welcome
Love hurts, I hope you are ok?
Ive had 4 loves and all 3 prior to my wife now have broken my heart. At the time of heartbreak it was the end of the world. But that isnt reality. Reality in your case, is some level of incompatility, sadly. Your needs for companionship and commitment differ.
What I eventually proved to myself on each occasion of my ex's is that love is possible with another person AND that other needs of mine were met.
This will be hard for you to accept at this time.
You could however pull back for a while. It might be that he realises his love for you is not replaceable.
I can underdtand you hoping his commitment level would improve and its rare someone sticks to such when love arrives.
Sounds like he wants the best of both worlds. How can he want to be exclusive but not a relationship? Pretty easy to work out if you think like a college aged male.
While you focus on him, the person who wants you for the right reasons could be right in front of you. (We don't live in fairy tale land, but you get my point)
As dan said, if what he says isnt abusive its at a minimum offensive.
He will leave you first chance he gets, once he finds someone he wants to be with until then he is only using you to satisfy his needs.
His words of love mean absolutely nothing they're false words, and he only says this to keep you with him.
You sound like a lovely girl wanting to find someone to love you and respect you, but being manipulated by
