    Too High Maintenance (sorta)

    I love my current girlfriend to death, I really do. However, she needs ridiculous amounts of emotional support. I’m a guy who likes his alone time, a lot. However she legitimately cannot go a day without me there. She respects me when I say no I don’t want to visit, text, or Skype, or whatever, but I know it crushes her to do so, and as a very… compassionate person, it crushes me to say no. She’s believes that nobody really likes her, shje has.a fear of failure, she sometimes says that the only thing she’s good for is sex, she feels that shes incompetent compared to her family, she has body image problems, and primarily she believes that one day I’ll “realize that she’s not worth it, and leave”.

    Her needs are honestly fatiguing. I don’t know what to do. I’m the only person she feels comfortable with, and I could never drop her, she means too much to me, and I care too much about her. But I can’t go on living as her only solace in life, it’s ruining my own. I don’t know what to do.
