I've been with my boyfriend for two years, and we've lived together for 1 1/2 years. I'm currently unsatisfied with the way the relationship is heading. I don't feel as though we communicate as well as we should. We don't seem to be able to share the household chores enough to make me feel like I'm NOT doing everything (I feel like I do just about everything.) He can go from fine to frustrated in 4 seconds flat over the most insignificant things, whether it's with me, his parents, his friends, and I can't STAND it. Our financial decisions always seem to clash - he spends on big things a little more freely than I do, and while we're just dating, and I don't expect him to check all his purchases with him, we DO live together, and I have helped him pay off bills before so to me it's a slap in the face when he splurges without talking to me. I could have put that money elsewhere.. I've tried a number of times over the past two months to talk to him about what I'm feeling and try to figure out what we can do to fix it. I know I'm not perfect, and I'd like to know what he would want me to work on so we're both happier. This seems to be getting me nowhere though. I don't know if he just doesn't take me seriously, or doesn't think there's a real problem. I know he thinks I don't listen to him enough (which is a problem with him as well.) He thinks I treat my dog better than his dog (though he does the same thing.) He feels as though I never get excited about things he talks about (I guess I'm just not a super excitable person.) I'm considering moving out for at least a year. Perhaps that will give us the space to just date, and work on our relationship. I know we already take each other for granted. We don't go on dates. Our sex life is non existant (which is both of our faults). I feel like I just have a roommate, not a boyfriend. I don't know if moving out is the best idea though. I'm not sure if it will fix the things that aren't working. All I know is I'm getting beyond frustrated. Any ideas or opinions would be great.
