Dating an Overly Emotional Guy

Group Therapy: An Overly Emotional Boyfriend

This question comes from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

So I have been with this guy for about one year now. It was a really strange situation, us getting together: I liked him a few years before (but he didn't know) and then we went our separate ways, only to meet again. He started liking me and I was so happy because I had had a crush on him. However, the first time we went on a real "date," he had a breakdown and was crying for about an hour about his past. I was really surprised and honestly thrown off and uncomfortable. However, I swallowed the discomfort and went on.  

Throughout the next few months he wanted to hang out with me every second of every day and I shouldn't have, but I did, because I liked him and I didn't want to hurt his feelings. He ended up being extremely sensitive and jealous, having crying fits a few days every week. Now I am in a different country and we keep talking over the phone and I am not sure if I like him that much anymore. Well, I think I do, but I feel like there are too many things I've "swallowed" over the past few months. However, I REALLY don't want to hurt him, and I know that it will absolutely kill him if I break up with him. Plus I am going back to college next semester and he will be there probably bugging me if we have broken up. I can't see myself without him but I can't see myself with him. I lost most of my friends because I was with him 24/7 and I'm scared to make a new beginning . . . it's also hard to picture myself with any other guy. What to do.
