Breaking up is hard to do

I need to vent.  I just broke up with my boyfriend but we're still friends.  I love him more than I've loved any partner I've ever had, including my son's father, but I can't be with him.  Is that wierd?  We were together a little over 6 months.  I'll admit I have commitment issues because of a bad marriage and other reasons, but when he asked me to move in with him I just couldn't.  I like my own apartment, I'm so afraid of being dependant on someone again.  I was struggling for months to tell him I couldn't make this commitment, I'm so in love w/ him & he treats me better than anyone has in my life but he's also treated me worse than almost anyone.  He has a TERRIBLE temper!  I feel like I have to walk on egg shells around him sometimes.  I'm not as organized as he is & that's an issue, he goes off so bad!  He tells me I'm not serious about anything when we argue, he blames me for wierd things too.  I don't remind him to take something he left somewhere, he feels I did something wrong.  I talk or hug someone he had a small arguement or fight w/, he feels I'm taking sides with them.  He never feels I value his opinion & somehow my not moving in with him shows this as well.  He'll yell at me in public, then get upset I'm not walking fast enough when I've gotten tired of him yelling at me & I'm getting depressed.  On top of it all we don't have sex much cuz he's NOT too good in bed lol, & I don't know what more to do to help him, good grief he's 37!  On the positive side he's very loyal, he always backs me in a dispute, he's careful to remind me how beautiful I am & how much he loves me everyday.  He's a real family man & is constantly buying his daughter things & sometimes even my son.  He talks about us as though we're already married & says when we broke up he felt he was served with divorce papers lol.  I just can't deal w/ his temper!  Or nitpicking.  Can't decide if I should take him back.

If he wants you to move in after 6 months, then he's the one with issues, not you! And you shouldn't have to feel like you are walking on egg shells.... at all! So you made the right decision not to be with him!

I feel he's a fucking asshole who doesn't deserve the time of day, and should be horsewhipped for treating his woman like that in public.
