There is this guy I used to date for about 4 months. We were not yet officially boyfriend/girlfriend. He was 29 and I was 20. He even said he liked me and would treat me so well. He treated me like a true gentleman and I could tell he was not the type to look for a fling at all.
Then one day, after we hadn't spoken for a while, (not a fight or anything) and he said that he felt we shouldn't talk anymore. He gave the following reasons:
1) He said that since I'm just about to be 21 and start my life, I will want to live my life without being tied down to a guy, while he's already at the tail of the whole "Living the single and young life" phase in his life. (In the back of my mind, I wondered the same from time to time)
2) He said he didn't like how I would rarely reach out to him and that he would have to initiate contact. (But I did show lots of interest without having to reach out) I admit I am guilty of this but now learned.
He broke it off and this was about 4 months ago. Throughout this time, I've missed him more and more each week. I had finally gotten to courage to reach out to him and decided to text him saying that I miss him. He texted back saying he had a girlfriend.
Now, people say before a guy breaks up with a girl, he thinks about it weeks in advance. I wonder if he started talking to this other girl while we were dating. And it raised the question: ALTHOUGH he gave the reasons for breaking up as the age difference and initiating contact issue, what happened to his interest in me?
Just a month before he had told me he likes me and how he thinks im different from most of the girls he's dated. How did he just throw his interest out the window?
Most Helpful Guy
Every guy responds differently to pain. Sounds like he saw irreconcilable differences. No way to solve them. So moving on was the only productive course of action.
Move on be happy and enjoy life. Positive behavior draws positive attention. Don't waste today and tomorrow on something u could never control. You say u learned from mistakes... great. Don't repeat them. Wish him the best. End as gracefully as you can. Leave the door open or closed however you wish and go on with life. Every step brings you that much closer to the right one rather than dwelling on the wrong one.1
