He broke up with me because he has a lot on his plate. What does that mean and will he come back once he has more time?

My ex and I just felt right and we quickly developed feelings from day 1. We got into a relationship and was together for a couple of months then stress and life started happening. He has a lot of responsibility with taking care of his father who is ill. His mother doesn't live in the same state so it's just him mainly taking care of his dad. That was always the case and he still made time for me but then he tore his meniscus at work and has other issues with family members. Then his dad received bad news that he will need a surgery and everyone is unsure if he'll make it through or not. That scared him which is understandable and that's when he started to get really withdrawn. He also takes painkillers for his own pain and works 12+ hours daily as he is in the restaurant business. Basically everyone leans on him and he expressed to me how he doesn't want to lose me but he can't really focus on us when his mind is in a million other places and he feels like a zombie. I admit that I definitely pressured him more but not intentionally. I just wanted more time with him and to know if he really wanted me or was he using stress as an excuse. (Trust issues) Every time I would ask him about our relationship or his feelings, he always said he wanted to be with me... then I think the pressure finally got to him. He broke it off but he never said the words "we're done." After I pressed him about it, he said he doesn't think he'll have time for a relationship. Then he added that in the future if I'm still single and we have the same feelings, we can continue where we left off when the relationship was healthy. To me, it gives me hope and I want that so bad because we shared too much for it to just be over with no closure. It's been 2 weeks with no contact although he works at my job once a week for catering and we saw each other and waved from across the room and smiled. Should I just give him more time and wait or do you think he'll eventually come back to me?

  • He got bored with you. If he "comes back" it means you are 2nd place to whoever he really wanted but couldn't get.

  • Well, not to be rude, you guys were only together for a couple of months... he may have felt you were too needy. Always remember is not the QUANTITY of time but the QUALITY of time that's important. I think you should move on.
