My boyfriend and I have been together for almost five years. We were each other's first for everything. We're so in love, but we're both really attached. Since we first started dating, we've been inseperable. We don't do anything without each other, because if we do, it's like we're wasting precious time that we could be spending with each other. It doesn't help, also, that we're both INSANELY jealous of the opposite sex talking to each other. But I've lost so many friends...girls like hanging out with girls...meaning, I can't bring my boyfriend with me when my girlfriends want to go to the club, or just hang out...and I would be so sad if I had to spend one night away from Chris, instead of doing the same old stuff we do every day. It sounds so pathetic, I know...but my dad was never around when I was little, and eventually left when I was ten...so I guess I'm just scared of people leaving me or something. Does anybody have advice on how to slowly pull ourselves away from each other, so we can at least have enough time to spend with our friends without each other?
