I've been with my boyfriend for almost a year and we live together and also have a baby. (Things happened rather fast). When we got into an argument, he never talks about it, he just shuts down and then goes out for hours then comes home and still don't talk to me. Recently, some things went down that kind of broke my trust for him and for a long while now, he's been hanging with his older brother more and more and talking to me less and less. When I was about to break up with him, he said he wanted me to stay and said he'd try to fix things but he didn't want to compromise on time with his brother. His brother has complete control over my boyfriend's frame of mind. Because his brother doesn't like to do certain things with his girlfriend, my boyfriend doesn't do them with me(etc). Its kind of like Monkey see Monkey do. I feel like he doesn't want to be with me anymore because he never takes the time out for us, he doesn't do small things to make me smile and I'm last on the totem pole when it comes to people he'd want to hang out with. Maybe its because I'm straight edge and he likes to smoke weed and drink. He says he loves me but he doesn't show it. He's really bad with expressing himself, and he can't discuss matters of the heart because he never fully let me in from jump street. How can I open him up and have him give us the real chance we deserve. Sure, nothing is guaranteed in life, and he may get hurt, but I opened up to him and he already hurt me. I want to give up on our relationship because I feel like he isn't trying and talking to him about it and causes him to become angry. What should I do?
