I've been dating my boyfriend for 9 months now and after the first month we knew we had fallen head over heels for each other. The problem began about 7 months into our relationship, I began to feel pushed away while my feelings of love deepened. I got scared and expected the worst and I cheated with my ex. I knew my ex loved me and I felt safe and secure. He (my ex) has an obsession and depression problem that led to our break-up of 2 and half yrs. I realized while I was cheating that this wasn't what I truly wanted and I left. I finally told my boyfriend hoping we could work things out. When talking he told me he also had cheated two times during our relationship. Ever since we had this conversation he's been different. He stares and nervously picks at his eyebrows or toes. He's confessed he's thinking about what I did. This has opened doors to anxiety and anger. He gets angry at everyone. He says he loves me and for right now we're not communicating. He feels I'm an added stress and when I show concern he feels I'm nagging him. I want to stand by him while he gets treated but should I? I'm giving him space as asked but I truly don't know what's best for us as a couple and as individuals. Can you help?
