I don't know what to do.
Okay, I have been dating this guy for 6 months now. I am only 16, but I know for a fact that I love him with all of my heart. We started to go out in the summer, and then high school started. We still have a very strong relationship. I mean I tell him everything and vice versa. But I decided that I could confide in my older sister who is 21. I told her that me and him were experimenting and just fooling around. We never did anything serious, I am way smarter than that. We talked about having sex, but we both decided that we were too young and should wait until we were emotionally and physically ready for it. One day, my sister told my mom everything. And that day without me knowing, my sister went over to his house and threatened him. She told him to never touch me again. Of course my mom had a talk with me and she said I was making stupid decisions. There is nothing wrong with fooling around ... is there?? I mean it's not like we were harming each other. I know for a fact that I love him and he loves me. So that's all that happened at 5 months. And now we are at 6. My mom said she wanted me to start hanging out with my girl friends. She said I was not allowed to hang out with him at all. Before we got into all of this I had made him my everything. And neither of us hung out with other people. We always talked on the phone with each other and hung out together. So, just a couple of nights ago he said that we should take it slow. I was okay with that because there is never anything wrong with that. But last night I asked him if he loved me any less. And he said kind of, but in a dependent kind of way. That really hurt, because throughout all of this I have never stopped loving him even the slightest bit. Yes, I know that he is more mature than me. He said that we were too young to be settling down and that we just need to be friends. He said that he still loves me and wants to be together forever but we need some time off. I really don't know what to do. I love him so much. And he said I love you too but in a different way. What is that supposed to mean?? He also said that he expects me to hate him for a while, but I will see that things will get better. But that is what I am afraid of. Over time he could stop loving me altogether. This is not my first time having my heart broken, but this is the worst. I know that we are meant for each other. I want to hate him and be mean. But I also understand. I just want things to get better. And I don't want to lose him. What should I do??
