Relationship advice I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for 5 years now. I love him and everything was going great until i had to move 1 1/2 hours away for college. Last semester was our first semester apart and it was tough but we managed to make it work. This semester is getting harder between us because I have made friends and he is becoming very jealous. He doesn't want me to talk to guys even if it is for school, he doesnt want me going to bars even if it is for a girls night out. He expects me to text him 24/7. Last night we got into a hugh argument and im hoping for some advice. so last night i went to the movies with a groups of my classmates, both boys and girls went. I picked up my friend at her apartment and after the movie i texted my boyfriend letting him know that the movie finished, this was at about 11 pm. I then went to drop off my friend at her apartment but we ended up staying in my car for about 1 1/2 hours just talking about school and gosipiing, however while i was talking to her, i forgot to text my boyfrined back and let him know that i was still with my friend and so he got worried thinking something had happend to me. he called me 27 times multiple texts, he got os worried he called my mom to ask if she had heard from me and since i live away from home, my mom got worried so she called my roommate who didnt know i was at the movies in the first place. so aparently everyone was looking for me for those 1 1/2 hours that i was just talking to my friend. once i checked my phone (which was on silent) i called my mom so she wouldnt worry but when i called mmy boyfrined he just blew up and got super mad. know he thinks i was cheating on him with some guy, he doesnt believe that i was just taking with my friend for that 1 1/2 hours. i told him he could ask my friend so he would know im not lying. I understand he was worried, i admit i should have checked my phone or at least texted him so he wouldnt have been worried, the fact that he went through all that trouble to call my mom, shows me that he cares, but the fact that he is still mad and accusing me of cheating and saying that i dont care about him because i didnt text me, is what gets me mad. I appologized for not texting him, i don't know what else he wants from me. Im afraid he might break up with me since he broke up with me last onth for no reason but we got back together after 5min (it was more of just an intense argument). I dont know how much longer our relationship can last as a long distance relationship (fyi, i drive home every weekend to see him) im doing everything for my part to try to make this relationship work but he still doesnt feel like it is enough, i just dont think he trusts me, ok know im just rambling, please if anyone has some advice i would greatly appeciate it

He sounds like he has issues. You haven't done anything wrong. He needs to speak to a rational friend who can make him see how irrational his behaviour is (in a nice, caring tone though).
