Thanks galagirl. I really appreciate the advice. I think I'm going to try backing away and figuring things out on my own. Just scared about court but I can't let that he the deciding factor.
When I was dating him he made himself vulnerable, open, and honest and I didn't think he would be such a control freak over my life. And when I tried talking to him face to face he would talk over me and tell me not to give up on him. But I think the best thing to do is break up with him via email or letter.
Thanks for all your advice. My mind is more clear and I know what I need to do.
