As a female, I am struggling with this question myself. I had what felt like a great relationship, and a really compassionate guy. He never failed to express how he felt for me. We had a deep connection from the beginning and a one year relationship. But then things seemed to take a 180. I'm not even sure what happened. Yea we had outside things to deal with causing stress, but this was nothing knew and we usually could always communicate our way through it. But then less and less he wanted to talk. The problem of him not having a job caused us to not be able to go out as much and stress. One day he broke up with me, I'm sure it wasn't because of another girl. In the months following we still had contact and he expressed his love for me on different occasions, but we never officially got back together. We still had that special connection though. But less and less he wanted to talk, he did get a job early on, but I don't know if its commitment issues, when he was so committed at first for a year, or what. I don't know what is going on in his head, and he may be talking to someone else, love? idk. I never ever cheated or anything like that, but am struggling with how our relationship quickly turned so sour, please help!
