He travels a lot and text is the best way to keep in touch. I figured texting now was better than dragging it out. This is what I wrote:

I'm dreading his response. Was this too curt? I don't know how else I could have phrased it.. :/
We were supposed to get married in the beginning of October so I felt breaking it off two weeks prior would have been colder.
We went in half cocked. Not to mention he was MUCH older

I think calling him would have been a better option. Ideal would have been face to face, but I can understand how that wasn't option. Calling him at least makes it as close to face to face as one can really get (without facetiming or skyping, but that may be kinda weird).
I think that, on the whole, breaking off the engagement was a good idea, so in the long run it is a good idea. The entire engagement was pretty shakey at it's foundation. In the short run though, the methedology was a bit cold. It was a well-written text message, I just think calling would have been best. It may have give him more closure and have him move on faster.
Heck, he may still want to call about it-- or at least, I imagine that'd be my response in his situation.1
