My boyfriend and I have been on and off for 5 years. recently we have been on for 2 years with a 15 day break up in the middle? Anyways 3 weeks ago his parents got their 2nd divorce from each other. I was at college (he's a HS senior) and I tried my best to listen and do what I could. The weekend of the split he came to visit and we were so happy and had so much fun and were so in love. The beginning of this week he was very tense and snappy and everything little thing i did was wrong. (liking a guy friends status on FB, I posted a picture with my friends and we were wearing bikinis). And he was just mad and he said he wanted to spend a day or two to himself. Well yesterday I came home from college for the summer and he called and he asked me to meet him at our local McDonalds and I said ok. We sat in his car for 2 hours and he was just pouring out to me all his feelings about his parents and I listened intently and commented when needed. All the while he couldn't look me in the eye when he talked. At the end he looked at his hands and told me that we should break up and he feels that we are "one sided" because he spends so much money coming to see me. (my college is 36 minuted to an hour away). then he said“you’re beautiful and i love you but i don’t even think i know what commitment or love is anymore and i wanna just be friends”. We have gone off before and the longest we were ever apart was 90 days. Should I wait and see if he comes around or are we broken up for good?(I'm currently doing the whole "No contact" thing)
Boyfriend broke up with me because of his parents divorce?

Sometimes one thinks that he knows his significant other 100% .. in tense situations, we tende to feel like strangers. You love him, you can't help him besides he is getting away from you. That what make you helpless. Rethink it again, he sees his parent falling apart, maybe he is wondering so what's the point of any commitment if in the end we break each others hearts. So he thought that he may hurt you and as said : "prevention is better than cure". But to you, you love him, and will do everything to keep him right? He is just confused and needs time. Be that caring one and give him what he needs. He will feel the need of you. Believe me. Guys are predictable creatures. Eventhough I know my bf better than himself, and how much I mean to him I feel the same panic every time we "break up". Still quiet and love him unconditionally until he realizes that in reality we get as much love as we give and every relationship is in our own hands. Wish you the best.0
