I want to break up, but I stay cause I'm scared.

I want to break up with my boyfriend. But, I'm so scared and worried that I won't love anyone else when I grow up and won't find some other guy and I'd end up alone. I'm so picky about guys and I'm very pessimistic...

It doesn't help that has happened to my mom, she met the love of her life, it ended for some reason and now she's sad with my dad. I don't want to be like that. I just want someone to love the rest of my life and someone to love me back.

I'm 16, so I have all the time in the world, right?

I need advice or guidance to help me overcome this feeling and not be worried that I'd be alone..):

  • You're 16, you are young and can look forward to many opportunities to meet guys as you get older. Definitely break up with your boyfriend if you feel it's no longer working. It's far better to be alone, then to stay with someone because you're afraid to be alone. Too many people find themselves in codependent relationships unable to leave for fear of being alone. Don't do that, you could waste years of your life in unfulfilling relationships if that is the route you choose for yourself. What happened to your mom is unfortunate but it doesn't have to be your path. The best thing you can do is work on yourself., Work on your self esteem and independence so that you will find the right guys. Enjoy hanging out by yourself or with your friends and the right guy will come around.

  • I am in the same situation. I want to break up so bad. but I'm scared! I advise you to break up with him. do whatever makes you happy. if he's not the right guy , he's not going to make you happy. break up, then go looking for another. I guarantee there is another guy out there-don't doubt yourself. if that doesn't go so well, try dating sites. just as good. hope I was a help!
