He’s said he loves me in the past

He’s said he loves me in the past

Hi my boyfriend and I have been together for over a year now and we live in a small room together behind his parents house. We’ve had a few bumps in the road. This is his first serious relationship. He says he’s content with how we’re doing. But he doesn’t know if he loves me. He says he has nothing to compare it to, so he doesn’t know if this is love. We tried to be apart. I went to live with my mom. I was only there for one night and the next night he brought some of my stuff over for me and he cried. I cried and said I wanted to come home.
