    Hi Warren and thanks for bringing your issues to this forum.

    I think you should stop focusing on why she's being the way she is being and focus on yourself and the emotional toll this relationship is taking on you.

    It's clear that she doesn't want the same things as you do, at least not at this time. A relationship between two people who want different things out of life is not a good relationship at all and somebody is going to pay the price for it, in this case you yourself.

    She would continue on with you indefinitely - pulling you in then pushing you away. It has to be you who takes responsibility and does the mature thing and ends it.

    In life the older you get the more you understand that you have to think about what a situation is doing to you emotionally and then take the necessary steps to put an end to the pain by breaking away.

    Please do not prolong this agony any further. Leave her behind once and for all and do not be lured back. You know by now that she is never, ever going to change.
