I have been in a relationship for the past 4 years. My boyfriend has fought with me a lot during this time, which I have tolerated. He now wants to end our relationship though, because he has been unemployed for a while. I keep telling him that he will find a job eventually, but he refuses to listen and insists on ending this. I have asked him not to think about the future too much and concentrate on the present instead, but he doesn't really understand. What can I do? How do I convince him?
I'm not sure what you want to convince him to do. On the one hand, you don't sound particularly happy about the last four years spent with this man, on account of his behaviour, which you claim to have tolerated. On the other hand, you want to hold on to him despite the fact that he wants to end this relationship for what is admittedly a flimsy reason. He is obviously not happy being with you, or he wouldn't have tried to end this using an excuse that doesn't really make much sense. I can't think of anything positive that can come out of forcing him to stay against his wishes, to be honest, and you don't really seem to have a reason either. Why not simply move on?
I want a girl who listens to my parents, because my brother was married to a girl who didn't listen to them. The marriage eventually ended because she refused to listen to my mother's advice on anything. I have been dating a girl for a year now, but she doesn't seem very keen on listening to my parents either. I have tried explaining to her that this can work only if she agrees to everything they say, but she thinks that is ridiculous. What can I do?
You should end this relationship and let her go, for one. And you should stay single, to protect other women from your parents.
