My boyfriend and I were dating 3 years. He's 28, I am 25. About a week ago we got into our first real fight. Along with my best friend. The two of them got very upset with me over something rather petty, it had just been building up for a while. But we all talked about it. We all had things to work on. My friend is also going some troubles with her soon to be ex-husband. The three of us all close friends, so we're all also trying to deal with that.
Not more than a week later, he broke up with me. He said he needed space, he didn't see a future with me anymore. Although whenever I tried to talk to him about "our" future I was brushed off quickly. How could he expect to see a future with me, if we never talked about it. We're still friends. He said I was one of the closest friends he's ever had. He still loves me, he still cares about me. We're still going to be best friends. Along with my other friend.
Does it sound like there could be a possibility that he'll rethink his decision to just be best friends?
Things had been a little weird between us since the fight, but he said we'd work on things. No one really saw this coming. Our other friend was shocked. My sisters boyfriend talked to him (they're pretty good friends) and even he said this wasn't the person he knew. Something else has to be going on.
