Home More advice Education & School

My boyfriend & I have been dating for about a year, it's been a great year but their has been some bumps in the road. He was a jealous person at the begin I thought it was cute, but now it's getting out of control. Theirs a forgin exchanged student(Well now he & his family might be moving to the states) named (Vladimir) from Russia. He's is in 5 of my classes plus my lunch. He sits next to me in British Literature AP, so usually were partners. My teacher has asѕigned us a long term project and Vladimire & I are together (we did not get to chose our partners). The way she chose who goes with who was by are ethic differences, he's Russian & I'm black & Hispanic. We have to learn to things from each other and precent it to the class. I'm teaching Vladmir a Bachata Dance, I let him pick which type of Latin dance he wanted to learn. ( and how to cook my family's recipe Red Chicken Curry. He is teaching me The Chort – "The devil dance" and how to make Lemon Tvorozhnik. My boyfriend usually always wants me to be with him and I will admit for the past year I haven't really been able to spend as much time with my friends & family because Ivan wants me to be with him. Now I had been driving Ivan to my house so we can do this project and I go to his host family's home often too. Ivan will get jealous and say rude & petty things, and I know it bothers Valdmir even though he doesn't say anything. I talked to Ivan about why is he acting like a child and he was like "Why are you taking his side" "He's only been here for a few months and the both of you are stuck at the hip" When he says stuff like it just pushes me farther away and it's getting on my nerves. He always blowing up my damn phone with text and calls asking where am I and who I'm with. A hand full of my friends want me to break up with him, plus Valdmir tells me how I can do better and how he can take care of me. I just really know what to do, I feel stuck.
