This is geared towards younger relationships, like in college and things like that. It could apply to older relationships but that's when you're looking for "the one" so you're less likely to break up for a reason like this.
You thought it would be the best for both of you because you would be really, really busy and wouldn't be able to spend much time with your significant other, and you didn't want to hold them back. You still love them but it's not like you were going to get married so it's better to break things up now before things get tough?
I'm not going through a breakup but I'm genuinely curious after reading some of the questions.

It just happened between me and my girlfriend... She broke up with me because I was so focused on college and plus I play the keyboard for my church and I work part time, In addition she works a full time job, it truly hurts me because I felt like she was my soul-mate, we were already planning our future wedding, I even asked could we retry the relationship again but she said that she needed someone to always be there for her and attentive to her emotional needs.
Now that were are apart I realize that women constantly need attention and affection. So if I get in a new relationship I know what I need to be more attentive to her emotional, physical and mental needs, Yes I miss her and want her back in my life, but I just want her to be happy, if you really love something you let it go, and if its meant to be they will return. But the bright side is I'm more focus on the things I love which eases the pain.
