I've been with my girlfriend for six-and-a-half months now, but something's been building up inside her to make her unhappy, and it all came to a head today. She said she needs a break. She wouldn't tell me what was wrong, saying she didn't have the words for it, and she wants me to be happy without her. I don't think I can do that; I was never really happy before she came along. We do love each other, but for some reason she has this need to depend on herself, and apparently it's too much pressure for her that she means the world to someone. We agreed not to see other people, but she wouldn't promise me that she'd come back to me. I don't know what this means, or I don't want to face the possibility that she might leave me completely. I'm afraid; I love her so much, and she means so much to me. I just want her to be happy that someone loves her, and I want her to stay with me. I haven't felt this way about anyone, and I doubt I will again. I normally just frequent the Off topic board, but I don't know where else to turn right now. Has anyone else been through something similar to this, and if so, what was the result? I don't want to lose her.
