'You're reading too much into his sensitivity'

I have had bad luck with a lot of my relationships in the past. A number of men I was with earlier used me and, for a long time, I assumed I would never find love again. A year ago though, I found someone who I think is perfect in every way. He's kind, romantic, genuinely caring and always thinks of me first, which is rare. I have loved being with him, except for the fact that he is too sensitive. He gets upset very quickly for the smallest reasons. For instance, he was almost in tears a week ago when I told him I had run out of shampoo. I don't want to lose him, but I don't know how much longer I can be with him if he continues to take things so seriously. I am afraid to discuss this with him because that might upset him too. What should I do?
 

So, if I understand you correctly, the only person who you think you have found love with is annoying you because he's a little too caring? I'm not sure if that makes sense. So what if he's upset about you running out of shampoo? How is his sensitive nature so awful that it makes you look back fondly at boyfriends who used you? If he's too emotional about everything, speak to him about it and tell him it annoys you. To consider ending this relationship for something so seemingly trivial sounds like a bad idea, especially considering the run of bad boyfriends you have had in your past. Don't jump the gun. This guy seems like someone who deserves a chance; so give him one.

My boyfriend doesn't respond to any of my messages on WhatsApp. I don't know what to do.

Our parents didn't have access to WhatsApp or even smartphones. They managed just fine. Maybe you should just try and speak to your boyfriend face to face more often. You might find it surprisingly refreshing.
