Hi everyone - I'm new to this site, nice to meet you! This is my first question. So my ex of 6 months broke up with me two weeks ago because he felt there was no realistic future for us (he has major committment issues). He kept contacting me like nothing has happened and when I told him he hurt me and I want to sever all ties with him, he freaked out! He's been texting me asking me to reconsider. I'm confused - why break up with me then?

Well, I think you should ask yourself, "Does it matter why he's upset I don't want to stay friends?"
I am not a big fan of staying friends with ex's. This doesn't mean that you have to sever all ties. One can still be civil and polite and even friendly, but not necessarily friends.
I've noticed there are three major outcomes to ex's remaining friends.
A) Fast forward a few months or a year or so and they hate each other
B) Fast forward a few months or so and one of the two gets his/her heart broken all over again when the other starts dating someone new.
C) Fast forward into the future and they're still friends.
It's been my observation that A and B are the most common outcomes.
