my boyfriend of almost 2 years of whom works full time as remains busy said that he was going to come and see me yesterday and he never came. he said he called , buy i was not able to receive the call. this has made me want to break up with him but i know he loves me and i love him. but i dont like being stood up. should i let it go or break up with him?? iam unsure becauz i am very insecure about our relationship but he thinks that i am overreacting. what should i do?????

Take a deep breath, sweetie. Feel better?

Ok, now nobody likes to be stood up. And it's not cool when it happens, either on purpose, or by accident. But we all have to recognize that occasionally there will be things in our lives, or our partners lives that may change plans suddenly. Sometimes phones don't work, or cars break down, or bosses demand that we work late. Such are the things of life.

Unless this is an ongoing problem (ie. you're being stood up everytime you turn around), then I don't think there's any reason to worry. It sounds like your boyfriend tried to get ahold of you, but for some reason, it just didn't work. And it sounds like he's sorry. Sometimes circumstances are out of our control, and things happen. Don't panic. Understanding and forgiveness are some of the most key parts of any relationship.

thankz,kitten goddess. i think one of the things that stresses me most in my life is that i worry too much and take some things too seriously. like 2 days in a row, i did not speak to him and this made me furious , but i had to consider he has a fulltime job and he is busy. but how do i know when he dosent want to be with me or am just overreacting. I AM SO AFRAID OF BEING HURT IN MY RELATIONSHIP AND I THINK THIS IS HINDURING ME IN GROWING MORE IN LOVE AND TRUSTING HIM, PLEASE REPLY.

Sweetie...this is two days, in a relationship that's lasted two years. And he apologized...do you really think he would have done that if he didn't want to be with you? Relax a bit, put a little bit of trust in him.
