Monkey ai Posted February 16, 2012 Share Posted February 16, 2012 my BF(EX) just broke up with me 17 days ago, same story as many people have been shared in here, I have been dating him for 15 months, it was very loving relationship, we are both in 40s. he have been low mood for last 10 months, but last 3 months got worst, withdraw from me and friends, no energy and sleep issues and no sexual desire... finally he send me a break up email( it was sincere email), as I still was trying to working things out with him…it really make me wonder if it is his depression or he is just not in to you, basically he told me that he cannot focus anything now and want me to move forward, he felt guilty as he can not be a loving BF. As I am not really familiar of depression that time (I know much better now), so I did accepted break up and agreed keep as friends, it hurts, but I will be OK... I am no contact now for 11 days now, part of it I want to give him space, and part of I want to give myself time to recovery, as we have not really talk in person after our break up, but I still have some questions: 1. Should I send some of information to him regards depression, so he will start to treat this illness seriously, he is seeing a therapist on and off since he told me that he need figure things out for his life (he had very tough time last 4-5 year with cancer survivor, lost business and ex GF left….), do you think I should just keep light and distance… 2. Do you think this no contact will help him to better recovery? Also do you think it will help for him to come back to me…. Thanks for your help on this! Link to comment
