ok sorry to bother you guys again but i want to know what this means. I've been with my girlfriend for almost 2 years. Sometimes she tells me that we been together to long. I tell her if she wants to break up with me to do it. She always brings this up. In a way i think she wants to dump. Sometimes i convince myself she doesnt like me but other times i think she wants me beyond so bad. Well i would apreciate some advice thanks you guys later

Rather than telling her to break up with you, why don't you engage her in a conversation asking her what she means by this?

In other words, something like, "You say that a lot, but I don't know what you mean by it and it's troubling me. Are you sayiing you're tired of the relationship, and do you want to talk about that, or are you saying you're not sure about feeling this familiar?" or something to that effect.

The way you're responding right now shuts down communication rather than enabling it.
