Most Helpful Girl
Many of today's toms are sporadic, unpredictable and... grow cold duck feet when feeling scared or cornered into Thinking they have to do the Big "C" which Is----Commitment.
In your case, when he sealed it with the Kiss of death on his part, he got a bit nervous that it meant being hooked at the hip and now, he has these lame duck excuses for wanting to back off and is calling this a... break.
Shake it off here, dear. I just have given you the sure signs of a guy who couldn't handle not only 'Two times' but you also now know that Three strikes and he is out so move on... this bird is dead in the water.
Good luck. xx
