I was in an 8 month relationship with him... and I can't help but rewind how it all lead up to the break up.
Long story short. a month into my boyfriends new job as an auditor at RSM, I knew I was bound to expect less attention from him considering how many hours of work he was going to have, and how important I knew this new job was for him and his career.
I was completely happy for him, and thrilled to know he landed his dream job at one of the top 4 audit companies in America.
I guess I saw it coming..
He finally came to me one day expressing how he has a lot going on and that he can't continue this relationship for now.
And that I deserve someone that can nurture me and give me the attention that he once could give me when he was in his previous job as a retail accountant.
I'm dealing with it fine now, however difficult it was for me to accept at first.. considering that I too am in need of focusing on my career as well.
I know because of mutual friends and also his sister that he's even working on saturdays now.
He's not seeing anyone... so i guess this break up really was about his stress at keeping this new job..
I guess my question here is, can this really be a valid excuse to end a relationship?

It's hard to find balance sometimes.
It's even hard to juggle two things all at once.
Perhaps, this was for the best.
My brother is studying to be a Doctor and was away in another country for 3 months (only coming back 2 weeks at a time), and then going back.
Him and his girlfriend made their relationship work.
But this isn't for everyone.
