g/fs abuse
This is my story: my g/f of a year keeps breaking up with me, leaves me in the lurch, abuses me emotionally, snoops on my cell to see who I have spoken to. I have lost all my self confidence and am drained. However she says she loves me. How can she say this? I want to leave but cant seem to actually make the move. I cant seem to get relationships right. Her words keep me there. Any advice?

Why on earth is she still your gf ? She has a peculiar way of showing love, if that's what she says she is feeling for you --- sounds more like jealousy and possessiveness than love. Don't you deserve better than this ? Jusy say NO, and leave, she sounds bad for you. We keep hearing of the very real phenomenon of women who stay inexplicably with abusive men, and you remind us that it can also happen the other way round.
