My boyfriend and I have been together for five, almost six years. On Tuesday he confronted me through email telling me he's unhappy with our relationship and would like some space. I am not upset that his contact was through email because in his email he stated the reason for it being an email and not personal was because I intimidate him emotionally in serious situations. Understandable. It's actually one of my main flaws he cannot handle right now. I overreact, raise my voice and get angry quickly. Anyway, we talked for a couple hours later that evening and really didn't come to any conclusions. He told me I make him unhappy and that he was worried he would hurt me further on down the line if he didn't do this now. He also said he was scared this wasn't a smart decision and that he might lose me. We didn't make any rule or guidelines for this break. I'm currently couch surfing as we were between homes and living with his dad at the time. I'm not sure if I should attempt to get an apartment because I don't know how long this is going to last. I haven't moved my things out. I only packed a few clothes and my personal items. I'm mainly just very confused. What's the point of putting this on here anyway? Fuck my life.
