Maybe ou would benefit from seeing a good counsellor, to improve your own personal coping skills, so you wouldn't need to feel so dependent on the availability of your aunt in handling your personal and relationship problems. This is an issue of politeness and respect. It's not for her to decide which boyfriend you should have.
In the example you quote, I'd guess you aunt is angry that you didn't TELL her, having introduced the first bloke as if this was to be a continuing relationship, that it had broken up and that you were heading in a different direction. Just apologise, and don't make a big issue out of it. Take her advice seriously, but make your own decisions
