Are we meant to be?
So almost 2 years ago I met this older guy and we started dating, now at the time I was 17 and he was almost 21 so cause of our age difference we didn't broadcast our relationship. Anyway we dated for about 8 months and after my 18th birthday I was ready to introduce him to my parents. Well before he met them we broke up, I didn't hear from him again until two weeks before my high school graduation. He apologized for hurting me and we agreed to be friends. Now at that time I was dating someone new and although my ex and I had an understanding on where we stood with each other I felt wrong for being in contact with my ex when I kept getting on my boyfriend at the time about his ex. Anyway my ex and I kind of fell off again and rarely spoke to each other. Then one morning in January this year two weeks exactly after me and the other guy broke up my ex (the older guy) text me and we start talking then he says all this "I miss you" "you're the best female I've dated" and so on. Well to wrap it up we get back together but the age difference isn't an obstacle anymore it's the fact that we live in two different cities and really only see each other once a month. Because of that and a lot of stuff that's stressing him out, he says he wants to be alone. The last conversation I had with him he said I love you to death but seeing each other once another isn't fair to us, the he said I'm not leaving I'm just taking a break. My problem is I love him a lot and I do want us to last this time, but with this whole distance thing I don't know how to make it work any better. And as far as the whole "break" I don't know what to think. Are we not together? Does he not want to be in a relationship until we can see each other on a regular? It's all so confusing
I think he really does like you and want to be with you or else he wouldn't have contacted you again. This sounds to me that it really is just a break and he needs time to think all of this through and see how you guys can work it out and other things in his life. I wouldn't be worried.
