My bf and I have been together for about a year now and I'm

My bf and I have been together for about a year now and I'm having some struggles. It's a long distance relationship but we're trying to make it work.

At times it seems he's overly obsessed because all he wants to do is talk to me all the time. I don't want to be rude but I just don't feel like talking to him some days because it's exhausting. We talk about the same stuff every day and it's really old now. He doesn't do anything outside of work and literally waits by the phone for me to call him every day. I feel bad if I don't call though.

The 2nd think is that I'm soooo irritated with things he does, but I don't want to change him. He's relatively older than me but has literally zero life experiences so he can't relate to anything I'm talking about. He's 35 and he's never even heard of Chipotle or Family's really weird to me and it actually frustrates me because it seems like almost everyone knows what those are but he's so sheltered.

I realize I'm probably just irritable but I don't know what to do. We've talked about how we're different, but we care about each other so we want to make it work. Unfortunately I'm getting more irritated and less invested as time goes on and I don't know what to do. Any advice?

@phdchick Thanks for your reply. I have thought about those things as well. I haven't gotten anyone else's perspective on this up until I posted on here, so I wanted to see what others would do in this situation. I appreciate your honesty.

@innerbeauty you my dear have your answer inside of you!
Be courageous and brave, be sure in God's goodness for you and for him, know that God promises peace in all circumstances not calling us to confusion.

You need to talk to him about how you are feeling and figure out if you still want to stay in the relationship with him
