You didn’t thoughtlessly throw him away , you wisely exited a terrible situation.
I should have mentioned, I'm not referring to abusers and cheaters
but I'm also very sorry to hear that you went through that

Maybe I should've put a comma, but no. You're cutting them out just for your own convenience
You think it was convenient?
As in, say your partner genuinely loves you and you make them better, but you don't feel the same. They're not quite at your pace yet. Also something's got them down on their luck and sorta clingy. So instead of learning to love them back, or even let them down with earnest soliderity, you cut them off completely start a relationship with someone else. You essentially ghost them because you don't want to feel like the bad guy (convenience) by owning up to your partner. I'll throw in that it feels ambiguous to your partner whether you cheated, but they're certain you disregard them.
If that's the case, discussion would be a better option. But you very well can't have a conversation with yourself, if the other party is unresponsive.
if the love stricken partner doesn't respond?
To be fair let's say they're both love stricken. You can't have a conversation with an unresponsive party.
In the scenario I gave though, it's the unimpressed "dumper", (for lack of a better word) that is unresponsive to the one they have left who loves them. Does the "dumper" deserve the same treatment from whoever they love?
