EBPhopeful Posted July 25, 2017 Share Posted July 25, 2017 I have been dating a man for a year and a half. It started out fast. Asked me to be exclusive 1 month after our first date. Asked me to move across the country with him I told him I couldn't so he took a job where I lived and asked me to move in. I was hesitant but ended up moving in. 3 months later he moved out originally looking for a place for both of us but decided he wanted his own space. Broke my heart. He told me it was okay he still cared and wanted to be with me. Continued to date I got a job 3 hours away that would advance my carrier I took it after he told me "we will make it work you are worth it". He was upset and used it against me a little bit. Still we continued to date. He once mentioned he will never marry me, months later said he didn't mean never he meant not this year, asked where this was going because he was about to give up something he loved to be with me. We have had woundeful times togeather and helped each other grow in many ways. He mentioned months ago he was planning to move and I started applying to jobs in and around the city where he is going. He told me then he wanted a clean slate or a 6 month break to get his business up and going. We broke up it only lasted 2 weeks (I broke up with him). I was tired of the back and forth. He told me it was hard, he can't bare the thought of me moving on and him losing me forever. We started dating again. Had a wounderful summer with vacations and weddings. Now he is moving out west next month. Told me he can't do it he won't have time for a relationship. All he wants if yo start his business and his dog. He did tell me a while at a wedding I was perfect and the only thing he would change is the timing in which we met. I know he struggles with this. How do I show him support and love and let him know it's okay he needs to go do this with out me? I don't want to lose him but I don't want to be strung alone either. Link to comment
