We were together for almost a year (we are both 23 y old), and we broke up a few days ago. I was out of town for a week and a half, we had a fight because I was jealous from time to time. Before I came back to town to see him, he said he doesn't want to breakup and that we should discuss this problem. When we finally met for a talk he kissed me, we sat down for a coffee and he acted as if nothing happened, until I finally initiated conversation about our fight. I said all the things that bothered me. I asked him if he wanted to be with me or he wanted to break up. He said he didn't know, and how he can't tell if he had lost interest or it's just a phase. He also said that he knows that he can't keep me hanging by telling me to wait for him to figure if he wants to be with me. In the end I was the one to breakup with him, we were standing there to say goodbye and he said how he didn't want to hurt me and that he feels attached and has feelings for me, and asked me if we could continue to hear from each other. As he was saying these words his eyes started to fill with tears, he almost cried and it was obvious that its hard for him.
He wanted to hug me but I said I can't hug him and just walked away. Its been 5 days now and we haven't heard from each other. He usually posts everyday on Facebook, but since we broke up he only shared one song over YouTube and it was a love song. He doesn't comment on anything his friends post on his wall, but I see that he is online a lot, even over the night when he usually sleeps he's up checking his FB and whatsapp.
I am so confused what happened here, was this just a case of a guy who wanted me to break up with him so that he doesn't have to? I need opinions. Thank you.

It sounds to me like you wanted to break up and he is honoring what you wanted. You were impatient with him. I mean you may have had a right to be, I do not know the details of the story. But in the end you wanted the breakup so he is not pressing himself on you.
If you want to find out, reach out to him and see where he is at.0
