Hey everyone I'm a 16 year old guy and I've been in a relationship with my girlfriend (17) for 5 months now. When we started dating there was this wonderful spark between us for about 3 months where I could see no wrong in her. But for the past month or so I haven't been feeling it as much and I'm noticing a lot of things that I don't like about her.

A few examples:
After school she plans on moving away from the country which I can never see myself doing as I have career plans that can be done here or possibly joining the army.
She has certain views we differ on and she's quite stubborn, I've made sacrifices for her yet she won't budge for me
She can be quite short tempered and rarely lets anything get in her way of her way

And the most important part: she's planning out both our futures already! At the start I assumed it was like playing house and just for a bit of fun but she's already set on baby names and which breed of dog we're getting :/

Don't get me wrong we have a lot of similarities but I'm not as sure as before if I can spend my life with her.

Please please help me I'm in desperate need. Should I break up with her soon or let it go on in a hope that it'll work out? And if I should break up with her, how should I do it?

Thanks guys <3

    There is no doubt that no relationship is perfect so I think you need to think about the good things in your relationship. Sometimes we always think the grass is greener. I was a complete idiot when I was your age and blew so many girls out. Looking back now I realise I was just an arrogant twat and should have taken my opportunities rather than sleeping around. Your girlfriend does sound quite bossy but having a girl that knows what she wants can be better than having one that is just totally passive about everything. Have you ever tried talking to her about it and reminding her there is 2 of you in the relationship and you'd like a say in the decisions. I think her reaction to that is important. If she dismisses that and just carries on exactly the same then you may well have problems in the future.
