How to get over a relationship when you didn’t even see the break up coming? After his dad got sick he started pushing me away he ended up breaking up with me. the reason for breaking up with me was because his dad died and he wasn’t coming back to the US. He’s from the Middle East. Arab Muslim. The way he broke up with me was so cold too. He was also studying out here higher education and told me that was cancelled. He said his mother and grandfather are his responsibility now and he can’t be with me. Maybe the love started fading with distance? Who knows. I just wished he would of been more straightforward I don’t think that was a legit reason to break up with someone. When I asked him if he still loved me he didn’t respond.
