I had been dating my now-ex boyfriend for four months. I'm 24 and he is 27. We met online and hit it off right away. Our first date was awkward, as he was so nervous he babbled and was totally unlike the guy I'd been emailing. I gave him another chance though and for the next two months it was bliss. He texted me every morning. He'd stare at me, unable to talk, finally choking out "beautiful" when asked. We were always doing something. He took me to meet his parents after the 4th date. He introduced me to all his friends. I spent Thanksgiving with his family, at his invitation. He's a professional ballet dancer (I have never danced, although I did musical theatre), but at 27 is transitioning into a career in physical therapy. He had talked about staying together long-distance if needed due to my PhD candidacy and his DPT, or applying near me if he didn't get in this cycle (I only can do what I do at 3 schools) He was taking a heavy, heavy courseload (senior in biology, need I say more) and dancing in 4 different ballets. I knew I would have to take backseat starting mid November to let him handle the school and ballet. I was OK with that, and tried to support him as best I could. He pushed me away. Honestly he was completely overwhelmed. I thought his distance was due to this, but out of the blue this week he broke up with me. He said his feelings had plateaued and he didn't see us going any further. I am totally shocked. Guys, please help me understand what happened here! Feel free to chat/pm me as well. I need some insight. Thanks.
