Why was my boyfriend crying when he broke up with me?

My boyfriend of 2 years broke up with me .. I couldn't believe it .. He said he still loved me but not as much as when we 1st met .. and that he didn't want to stay with me and in 2 years love me less again! But the while time he was in bits crying and squeezing my hand .. I gave him a hug and he broke down more and asked for 1 last kiss .. I was so upset and when I got out of the car he kept holding my hand - I had2 pull away .. I'm so confused .. Like he was breaking up with me? Why was he acting this way? .. and what's weirder is he is not an emotional person in the 3 years I have known him I don't think iv ever seen him cry .. What does this mean?

  • He probably hated hurting you and it was probably hard for him. After 2 years you are probably one of his best friends and when you end a relationship like that it can really change everything. Sounds like he saw how he was hurting his best friend and felt awful about it and also was dealing with his own feelings. It sounds like he cares about you and had strong enough feelings to finally call the relationship to an end, but when he was in the situation wasn't sure if he wanted to go through with it.

    I wouldn't read into it. Just be satisfied that he had an emotional reaction and worry about yourself.
