Break up
My b/f and I broke up on Friday. I am so upset and depressed about it. But, I dont even think he cares! He said his work was more important than me at the moment, how can anyone cut someone else because of work? I thought I meant everything to him, was the whole relationship a lie?

Well, h, if it was really a relatonship with an emotional investment, of course you feel upset and depressed. If you didn't feel that way, it wouldn't have been a relationship at all. Actually, though, a relationship in which one person expects the other to consider them "everything" and thus to neglect work duties and other committments in life, rarely works and is really unwise. You may have been too demanding for him to be able to give you all that you wanted and still survive in his job. Maybe if you seemed less needy, less demanding, a relationship could develop in a more lasting way.
And the comment of shutshut BEP makes a lot of sense, too !
