Re: he's on the brink, i don't want to lose him.
Those are some pretty minor issues in the grand scheme or relationships. If you're going to be in a long-term relationship and make it work, you'll have to learn how to work through issues like this--generally by having a rational conversation and making an effort to address the issues from both sides. Every couple, even the best couples, bicker about stuff. However, if these little differences continually become big issues between you, then that may tell you something about your overall compatibility.
