Did his parents make him dump me?

) We dated for 4 months, got to know each other over the course of a year
2) We're teens
3) His reason for dumping me was that he just wasn't ready for a relationship, but he said that we could still be friends
4) He seemed VERY INTO ME until one week prior to the break up, when he was a little less physically affectionate and didn't see me quite as often (but that could be because of parental intervention--see 9). When he was planning our last get-together (aka, when he dumped me), he seemed desperate to see me again (so either, he was DESPERATE TO DUMP ME or his parents were forcing him to ASAP)
5) Up until MINUTES before the break up he texted me ALL throughout the day (as he always did after we started dating) asking about my opinions, interests, what I was up to, giving me updates about his life, saying good night, etc.
6) I was recovering from surgery... so maybe he just texted all the time because he felt bad for me? We discussed many other things beyond how I was recovering though
7) He bought me flowers about a week before the break up due to my injury
8) He always kept up with doing me little favors/being a gentleman
9) One of his parents (who he is VERY close to/who he allows to control nearly his ENTIRE life) made it clear they did not like me.
10) He is very passive and aims to please his parents first and foremost

Do you think his parents made him dump me? Please be honest. Thank you!

  • Well, yes and no. Ultimately it was his choice and even though his parents may have been a big influence, there was something in himself that he realized he just wasn't ready to date. Doesn't mean he doesn't like you though. Obviously he still wants to be friends and who knows? Maybe you'll date again later.

    • Thank you! Did you vote in the poll?

    • You're welcome! Um no... because it's like a little of both so I didn't pick one.

  • A man won't do anything he doesn't want to do..

    But maybe he was influenced by his parents
