It has been a while since any relationship issues have come up and I have a doozy!

My boyfriend visits hook-up sites. Not really an issue. To a point, I see that like looking at porn: we are both adult males and adult males look at porn. But, he clicks the "remember me on this computer" box so I can access the site under his name. Yes, that is bad. But:

The reason I go on under his name is he had talked about going to Florida to meet with a guy he had met through one of those sites to see if our relationship is the one he wanted or if the one if Florida was the one. So, now, I click on under his name and I see he is telling guys he is in a relationship but still looking just in case.

We had a huge blow up about a month ago. I was comparing him to John (an abusive ex) and he pointed out that I was just looking for an excuse because that is what I have done with all my past relationships. Okay, he is right on that. So, I told him that is somthing I would work on and I would give 100% to this relationship. All I ask is he give 100% to our relationship. It does not seem like he is giving 100%, but I don't think I can approach him with this, but I think something needs to be said.

Let me say: Matt (my current) is not abusive to me. I *will not* go through that again. He knows if he tries anything like that, there is nothing he can say or do to live here with me. That is the end.

What do I do?

GO CANUCKS!!

I don't mean to sound harsh, but it doesn't sound like (in his eyes at least) you have a relationship, instead you're just dating and happen to live together. A relationship is where two people commit to each other and doesn't sound like he's ready to do that. If you've told him that what you want (and that is what you have to do) and he can't/won't commit, then you need to decide if you're ok with that or move on.

Totally agree. I just went through all that shit with a Pyschowad accusing me daily of hooking up with anybody and everybody...including coworkers and friends I had known for many years and hadn't even touched once. The best part is, he left open an email account he used to hook up with and I thought, ahh, why not snoop through his crap since he barges through mine....and come to find out everything he had ever accused me of doing...he was entirely and completely guilty of. Needless to say, even though I had moved on quite a while before hand, I moved on for good right after that.

the "remember me on this computer"

I see that as deceitful and would take that as the beginning of the end of the relationship. Time to make a change, serious talks and tell him how you feel about this, either he makes a real effort to keep the relationship alive or forget it - you move on, there's plenty more fish in the sea as they say.
Bit harsh but that's life.
Best of luck

It's my apartment, so I should ask him to move out.

Yes, I know that is deceitful, but the way I see it, if he was really serious about us, he would not be spending so much time on those sites, right?

That pretty much sums it up right there. He's treating you as though you're good enough for now, but he believes there is better out there and he is still looking.

If it were me, I would take my self respect and wipe it in his face and then walk away for good. You deserve better.

Change the locks, pack his bags, and tape a list of his online contacts to the side of one of the suitcases.

There is nothing wrong with the two of you guys looking at porn on the net, so long as limits have been placed before hand that you both agree on.
ie: no personals, no posting of pictures, no contacts etc etc
You get my drift?

Having said that though any guy that treats you like your man is treating you is not worth the effort. I mean why is this guy with you if he is "looking" elsewhere to check if there is anything better on offer. Are you allowed to do the same?
As stated before this sounds more like dating to me rather than a relationship.

Time to wave goodbye to him!

He sounds like he's unwilling to comit! Ask him whether or not he wants to work at the relationship and salvage any love you share, or walk away. It's easier to end it now rather than years down the line, so think hard about what you want!  brokenheart

You are so right! I found that my ex had placed an advert on direct dating! He was a rotten scum bag- cheating behind my back, beating me, isolating me and accusing me of being unfaithful. I was 16 when I moved in with him, and he was 30, so it was very easy for him to make me completely dependent on him. I had moved a long way from my family too. I ran away a few days before my 20th with a bin liner of my most prized possesions- left everything else behind. My life is great now!

What I am saying is that it's hard decision to make, but once you get over the initial step, it gets easier and easier.

Seem? He's NOT.

If you are in a relationship that's close enough to be living together, you should be able to speak to him about this.

Kick him out.
