WillowWandered Posted August 21, 2017 Share Posted August 21, 2017 Hello everyone, My ex (29) and I(26) broke up with me suddenly first via phone, stating that he "wants to go separate ways" so I calmly agreed and asked if I could get my stuff back to which he replied "not tonight, how about Sunday?" We have been in a relationship for over 2 years, and I recently had cancer which I recovered from (he insisted on taking me to all of my appointments etc, but I noticed right before the break up he was becoming distant and increasingly irritated). He normally doesn't get into relationships because he has communication problems, but we were trying to work on them. He also started a new job where he was also really stressed out, and when I was in the hospital he was sitting there doing work a lot. When I met him in person that Sunday, he said he was "depressed, wasn't talking to anyone, stressed out and didn't prioritize a relationship and he didn't make me happy" . He looked like he was on the verge of tears. I know he struggles with depression and letting people on, but I didn't know what to say or do. He said this is something he has to do alone. He only gave me back some of my things and said that he probably has more of my stuff then hugged me for a long time and tried to kiss me multiple times. He was also wearing an item I had given him, but didn't give that back to me. I randomly ran into his friends a week after who didn't even know he broke it off and hadn't heard from him. The break up was a couple of weeks ago and I haven't heard from him since. I just don't understand why he is pushing me away, only to kiss and hold me? I've never had a break up like this, can anyone reveal any insight or relate? Is he gone for good? I didn't beg, and I just walked away to give him space. Thank you. Link to comment
