I had a 3 year relationship with my boyfriend, but I happend to be offered an excellent job abroad on a 1 year contract (which means it’s just one year, they won’t renew or extend) I told my boyfriend and at first he understood and the next day he broke up with me because there was no point in going on with the relationship if I will be leaving soon, on his POV. The issue here is it just hurts so much, to be without him, for him to not understand the magnitude of the opportunity and him to be mad at me.
Should I try to take him back?
should I ignore the situation and look for him when I come back and if I still want and he still wants to, start all over?
Or should I not speak to him again because he is not supporting me?

I don't know why he did it, but he should have stayed with you for support, even if he wasn't there with you... or visiting you when the chance comes.
one year is not heavy, and the days are running faster than we expect.
his behavior and reaction are wrong, so you don't have to stay in that relationship anymore.
eventually, you will forget.
wish you luck with that job.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

Were you in a good place in this relationship before the job offer? Is he just using this a convenient excuse to break up because he was unhappy?
One year is really not that long in the grand scheme of things if your relationship is one that you both want. I say this because I’ve just done a LDR, that has finally ended. That’s not to say it won’t be hard, it bloody is, but it’s definitely possible, especially if you have an end date.
In my LDR, we had only dated for two months before I left... we made it work for 10 months, because he moved to where I was.
How far away are you moving? How plausible would visits be during that year?0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
