The story in detail
A bit of background
OP’s boyfriend revealed that he misses the thrill of being single
Ever since the revelation, OP has developed doubts about their relationship
Here’s how the Reddit community reacted to this story:
“Have another check-in talk with him. Tell him what you said in the last half of your fifth paragraph.”
“To me, this sounds like another aspect of his chronic dissatisfaction, and not something specific with you.“
“You are wayyyy too young to settle for a love that isn’t fulfilling.”
“You can miss aspects of your life pre partner, that’s a completely normal thing. Doesn’t mean the love isn’t there.”
“He sounds wishy washy and can’t commit to anything because he gets bored easily.”
“Breaking up is probably the best course of action.“
“I do not think you’ll ever be in a long-term relationship where the other person doesn’t miss certain things about their old life.”
“My advice is to remember what people do matters a lot more then what they think.“
Redditors advised OP to stage an “SOS check-in” session with her boyfriend and lay everything down.
She should explain that while she had lots of fun being single, she appreciated their journey together even more and wouldn't trade it for some unpredictable thrill fest—and she deserved and expected nothing less from her partner.
The digital jury collectively agreed that if he couldn’t love her the way she wanted to be loved, there was no point moving forward with the relationship.
