I have a boyfriend who I have been dating for about 5 months. Everything seemed fine, but on Thursday night he started saying that he was having some problems and he didn't know if he wanted to stay in a relationship anymore. He told me all the things that had been bothering him and I said that I would work on the mentioned things, and then he said everything was fine. Then Friday morning he called me and we were talking and everything was fine. He seemed happy, and he even said "I love you" before we hung up. Then we both went to school (different schools) and when I called him afterschool a world war began. He told me that he doesn't love me, he never did, and he only thought that he did. Then he said that he was never happy with me and doesn't want to be happy with me. He said I'm incappable of ever making anyone happy. Then we kept talking and he was all. Let's try again. So then we were back together. Then after about twenty more minutes of talking he said that he wasn't going to give me another chance because he hates me and wants nothing to do with me anymore. Then I started arguing with him about how he's being such a jerk because all the times I wanted to break up with him and he wanted to stay together I actually cared and gave him another chance. Yet, now the first time I need another chance he is totally unwilling to give me one. Then the weirdest thing happened and he broke down crying? And he just sat and cried saying that he hates his life and that he's worthless. That he hates his family and that he hates his friends and he hates me. That he's never been happy and all anyone does is make him unhappy. Also that he is so upset that no one loves him, cares about him, or needs him. And he thinks that all of this hurt that he is feeling will be fixed by getting rid of me. So I stayed on the phone and tried to comfort him? I tried to make him see that he won't be happy if he gets rid of me because it won't fix how he feels in general. It will only be a temporary fix. I also tried to tell him that I love him, but when I said that all he said back was well I don't love you. Then after he finally did calm down his father walked into his room and asked him "Did you get rid of her yet?" And then my boyfriend was all "What do you think I'm trying to do?" And then they both laughed. So then after about another hour of talking he said he is gonna give me another chance and that he is going to "try and make it work" but he still "doesn't love me" But maybe he will? So my question is, is this really all him talking, or is it stuff that his parents have been saying? Did he really only "think" he loved me? And most of all is all of this trying really worth it?
