Dear Writer, thank you for writing to us. I understand you get angry easily and argue a lot with your boyfriend because of your possessiveness. You are scared to lose him because he's in touch with his friends.
Do you have friends you are in touch with?
Has your boyfriend done anything to break your trust before?
If not then this is an insecurity which requires you to work on. The more you try to possess him and hold him close out of fear, the more you will end up pushing him away.
Are you losing interest in him or is it just him who's losing interest?
Please message back to continue discussing. I am here to help. Regards
