should I just forget about him while I'm gone?
I'm about to go study abroad for the rest of the summer. I have a boyfriend of almost 5 years that I'm leaving behind. Everyone is telling me to not think about him and if guys ask me out to go out with them and not to limit myself. I don't know if this is good advice to take, especially since all the people telling me this know very well I've been dating this guy for over 4 years. Not to mention my family constantly asks if I'm still with him/seriously dating him. Here's some background on him: Over the past year and a half our relationship has been suffering since he started battling depression and a "mild marijuana addiction". I used to live with him (I still had my own place, but all of my stuff was at his apartment), but a year ago after him complaining that I was always around, he asked me to move my stuff out and sleep at my place. After I started living on my own again, I've felt more "free" and go out with my friends and roommates a lot more than I ever do with my boyfriend. For a few months now, I've started to feel like he only likes me when I go over to his place and we have sex. And I feel like when I do go over there and we don't have sex, he's mad and suspicious (but i don't know if that's him joking around). He never wants to come to my apartment for various reasons he gives me everytime I invite him. So, basically I'm asking- should I just forget about him while I'm gone?
