I never ended a long term relationship, it was always them. So I don't know really why people breakup so easily.

AT my age, I've had quite a few relationships. Hitting on the highlights:
PP Decided that divorcing her previous husband was a mistake. She dumped me to return to him, they remarried and divorced again within a year.
EA I moved away and she returned to her ex-boyfriend
JS I broke up because she was too self-centered, I gave her crystal candlesticks for Christmas, and she gave me a lint brush (really!)
GL She had a cocaine habit and I didn't, She thought that I was too good for her and would dump her eventually, so she dumped me first.
DH Married 17 years. Diagnosed with MS, turned into a prescription drug addict. Just fucking nuts!
PJ Married 2 years. She had an affair with a female friend; she filed
for divorce when I got laid off from my job ("If you don't have a paycheck to support me, there's no reason for me to stay," she said, and I replied "And I wouldn't want to stand in your way as you're leaving.")
OB She moved away; didn't want to commit because I was still
JJ I broke up with her when I discovered that she was mentally ill (borderline personality disorder)
LC Married 3 years. Her adult daughter was jealous and told her mom to divorce me; LC never said no to her kids.
IC Current girlfriend of 4 months. All is well so far,1

I’ve ended a long term relationship with a man before because what he had to deliver was simply not enough. I needed more integrity, loyalty, protectiveness, sense of adventure, romance, chill peace, and intense bliss. Over time, I accumulated a list of things that excite my spirit and he just wasn’t on it anymore. I tried to stay with him but found my imagination wandering what it’s like to be loved by a different man…what kind of experiences and moments a different man could bring. Even though there was no other man physically there capturing my attention. My head tried to make it work while my heart felt confined so I decided to stop wasting my limited time alive and move on.1
