Look hunny, I know it sucks, because I just came out of a 2 year relationship very similar to yours. Except only a lot worse. First of all...I don't know if you do, but if you can't spend every free minute you have together, or on the phone with each other. You need to have your own personal space. Wether or not you think you want it or not. Trust me. Me and my ex were ALWAYS either together, or on the phone. I didn't have time to breath. I stopped being who I really was. I couldn't sit down by myself and write down poetry like I wanted to. The only time I had to myself was when I was asleep, or in the shower. In the end that was one of our biggest downfalls. Inside we were soo stressed out and just fed up, but we didn't even realize why we were stressed, and we didn't see that it was each other that was making us sick...and we'd argue because we were then just gotta be careful who you trust...and spend time alone with yourself every now and then. Becoming co-dependant on another person, is very hard to get out me.
