Prior to our relationship we had been friends for 30 years and the relationship lasted for almost 2 years. For this last 10 months, we have had on and off periods of no contact, then weeks of good communication and then no contact again, etc. Back in July we had an argument and he said that he just wants me to say goodbye. He says we can not be friends, and that it needs to be over?
After 3 months I reached out to him via email and asked if we could talk sometime in hopes of being friends again. After all we were friends for 30 years before the relationship. He responded with total nastiness and anger. He said he wants me to leave him alone and not contact him. When I asked why we can't be friends, he just said he does not have to justify any of it and leave him alone.
I can respect that, however, can someone tell me why he would not want to be friends and why he is so angry? I have left him alone, and apologized , however,
I guess that is not good enough?
