Did his grief cause this breakup? - Love simplegirls.date
He was going out of control and he was doing things to punish himself and everyone around him. I thought I was going to loose him to his own self destruction. He is slowly making his way back.

We are not a couple as of today but we do everything together. He's not seeing anyone else but we are more like best friends instead of a couple. He gives me a hug and kisses my cheek and that is as far as it goes. He bought me a tv for my bedroom, pays for my meals, spends the night with me.

We snuggle and thats it, no sexual contact. He said in the past that he was scared to show me his feelings in case he couldn't give me what I wanted and didn't want to hurt me like before. It's hurting me more now because were together all the time but I still want more.
I finally confronted him about our situation and told him I didn't think I could do this anymore because It's been 7 months since Jay died and I can't keep holding on if there is no future for us. He said he didn't want me to leave. He didn't realize how he was treating me. I believe he has been so wrapped up in own grief and problems that he couldn't think of anyone else and how they might be feeling.

I continue to love him with all my heart but I'm still scared. Just know that the grieving and healing process can be very long and painful for all those involved. Don't give up on him and I'll pray for both of you: Sign Up or Sign In.

The night he asked me to be his girlfriend he text me and told me he was waiting outside for me. He told me first he loved me and he was always showing me affection and treated me like a queen.
I was there for him every step of the way. I didn't crowd him and I just listened to him when he needed to talk.
He started pulling away from me instantly. I thought this might be good for him, by getting away. On weekends if we did do stuff together we did things in a group.
We were seeing each other but not doing things as a couple. He continued to cry about Jay. The day he did call him he was just getting home from the emergency room and then he died 3 days later. Everyone that was close to Terry could see him pulling away.
He said right now he had no emotions or feelings about anything.
I am willing to give and sacrifice whatever it takes in order to be with him again. My guess is that your boyfriend is so overwhelmed with family responsibilities that he doesn't want to manage another person you. Healing from Parental Neglect. We are not a couple as of today but we do everything together.
He said he loved me but right now he needs to be alone. He said I didn't do anything and there was no one else but he just wanted to be single.
The breakup shocked everyone because they knew how much we loved each other. His family and friends are telling him he's a fool for breakingup with me. I miss talking to him so much. What should I do? I'm afraid he will forget me and move on. Comment You need to be a member of LegacyConnect to add comments!
