Repeatedly Breaking Hearts

My boyfriend and I have known each other since the sixth grade. We really started to hang out in the seventh grade because I was best friends with his girlfriend at the time. Well, many years went by and he broke up with her. He then dated dozens of girls before he got to me. He was what you call a "player". I never actually thought of him as more than a friend until recently. Well, let's just say that I can't say no to him. We have gone out four times. Every time, he always breaks up with me, and then as soon as I get over him he asks me back out. He says that he loves me and that he would never do anything to hurt me, but he does it every time. He says, "I love you," but when I say it I mean it. We are still going out, but I think he might be ready to break up with me again. If he breaks up with me, then I'm just going to give up on love.
