I'm very curious about this question... So if it doesn't bother you, please answer... I just want to see what people have broken up over...

Sorry for the long response, apparently I needed to get this out. My ex-boyfriend broke up with me because after 11 months of dating he couldn't see himself falling in love. It was really hard to understand because even after the breakup he would always say how great he thought I was, how intelligent I was, how attracted to me he still was, and how much fun he had with me. He even told me 2 months after the breakup that he didn't enjoy a camping trip he took with friends because he thought of me the entire time. All of those things just never added up to me because I would never put a time frame on when you're supposed to fall in love, especially when so many things in the realtionship are great and you know being appart will make you suffer. Part of me wonders if it was largely a timing issue because I'm in a place in my life where a relationship is a top priority, where for him his career and misc. activities are more of a priority. He even admitted that he was in a very selfish stage in his life and that he wasn't ready to give other things up for a relationship, a huge conflict in our relationship.
We tried to be friends up until a month ago, 4 months after the breakup, but we inevitably turned into FWB and started talking all of the time. Even with everything that happended after the breakup and how much we both still obviously enjoyed spending time together he insisted he thought he still made the right decision by ending things. I finally had enough when he diminished what we had been doing since the breakup (hanging out ever week, sometimes talking everyday) to simply "catching up and chatting sometimes". I felt completely disrespected and taken for granted so I told him that I didn't need someone like that in my life. Since then there's been almost no contact. I think about him every day and miss him like crazy and wish we could be friends, but sadly I don't hink that will ever happen after all that went on after the breakup.1
