My boyfriend of 5 years broke up with me 2 and a half months ago. We have been together since we where 15 and we are now 21. During this time we have both gone to uni and lived away from each other and have managed the relationship fine. He told me that the reason he was breaking up with me was because he didn't think he made me happy anymore. He told me he did wan't to speak for a few months, then told me he was torn with what he was doing and might change his mind and when leaving to travel back to where he is on placement told me he loved me. He left me so confused.
A couple of weeks later i messaged him to let him know i would be dropping his things off at his mums house and we ended up having a conversation. During the conversation i asked him if he had missed me and he said yes of course but that's half the reason i am doing it. He then said he didn't want me to be waiting round while he made a decision so to just go and be single. He then told me that he would see how we where when he came home after his placement and he did not wan't to speak till then. I recently text him after 2 months of not speaking asking if he was ready to talk to me. He said he was but not all the time and we had a pleasant and slightly flirty conversation. I then decided not to text him for a few days to see if he text me which he did not.
Should I just try to forget about him or keep trying to talk to him? Do you think he is just trying to have me waiting for him when he decides to pick me up again? I'm so confused please help.
Move on with your life if you find a new interest wonderful.if this man you have been waiting on decides he is ready then he will contact you but at that time you can advise him what you will accept and won't from your relationship. Never put your life on hold for any man that is not committed to you
After 5 years, he did owe you an explanation but he seems very confused. Those teen years are the years that both of you should have explored the world and had lots of experiences. Perhaps he wants this now.
Yes, he probably does love you, but that does not mean he wants to be committed.
Go live your life and get those experiences.
