Dear Diana,
I'm 29 and happy to be gay. But my boyfriend has changed a lot in recent times and acts funny with me. We keep having ugly arguments and in the end, he leaves the room and walks out. I can figure that he wants to get out of this relationship but doesn't have the guts to say it. Thanks to his behaviour, I'm having a terrible time. Both my career as well as my social life is suffering. I don't know what to do. I tried talking to him but every time we end up having a spat.

Dear Milan,
Every relationship has its share of fights and squabbles. Is it one of those or something more serious? Something is amiss and that is irritating your partner. Why not have a chat with one of your common friends to sort out what's going on his mind? If this fails, you need to take time off and stay apart from your partner for a while to clear your mind. If your partner is having second thoughts about the relationship, he needs to be honest and frank to you. Next time before he walks out, clearly tell him to explain the reason so that both of you can move on life.
