Hi, I'm 17 years old and I've been dating my boyfriend for 8 months and he's 19. He's the best thing that's ever happen to me, but he's kinda over-proctective. like he always has to check my phone and everything. He just started to work, again, and I'm glad he has but he hasnt been himself lately. He seems like he doesn't want me anymore. I ask to see his phone and he flips out like there's no reason for me to check his phone, but yet he can check mine! I dont know what to do. I think he''s seeing someone else 'cause he never wants to be bothered with me anymore - it seems like that anyway. Can you please help me? ----------------Miss Emily's advice---------------- I can help you if you are receptive to what I believe you need to do. Tell him you no longer will allow him to monitor your cell phone. It's disrespectful, and he is not a parent checking on a child's behavior. Do not ask to see his phone, because it shows you are as untrusting of him, as he is of you. It's tempting, I know, but you must resist. Now, the reason you probably feel that he is seeing someone else is that he's working, again, a little tired, and doesn't have all the free time he's had before. That said, the more you appear needy, the greater the chance he'll find someone new. You have set yourself up to look as if you think the world revolves around him, and he's believing it. If you want him to stick around, start acting like a confident, self-loving person who demands an equal opportunity relationship. If he's not on board, push him over the rail, or wait until he pushes you!
