This situation and his reaction to you 'breaking up' reminds me of the pattern that abused women and the abusive man get in. The wife says, I'm not putting up with this anymore, the man returns to his 'honeymoon' behavior *for a while*, but eventually becomes even more abusive than he was the first time around....the cycle continues until one day the wife has become so beaten down by the whole thing that she up and kills the husband.
I'm not saying your bf is being happy on purpose right now; but I do want you to know that this kind of pattern can happen and that is ISN'T a cycle you want to get into. There is a saying "If nothing changes, nothing changes." If he doesn't get help, nothing will have changed. You might also get something out of recognizing what's *really* going on, and a therapist or some such professional will help you see the situation more clearly. DO NOT let your happy optimism about
life be used and abused by someone else -- this guy or anyone!!!
