He Broke Up - He Wants Me Back
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
My ex boyfriend broke up with me, saying he has a lot going on in his life, which I know he has stuff going on but not much.
A week later, we started talking again. He goes on how he is sad he hasn't kissed me.
So I remind him that he ended it with me. Then he tells me he still really likes me.
What does that mean? How come he broke up with me but says he still likes me?
Breaking up is a complicated thing. People break up for all sorts of reasons - even when they like each other. For example, a couple going from high school to college may break up because one is in college in California and the other is in college in Florida. They may still like each other - but they know it just won't work for them to try to maintain the relationship long distance.
In your case, he was busy and probably stressed. So he made a decision based on that stress. He didn't break up because he hated you. He broke up because there was too much for him to handle.
But once he was apart from you, he realized just how much you meant to him. Probably he realized that your presence was actually helping him manage his stress. He hadn't realized that before.
It's great that he wants you back! That's something many people dream about happening. If you want him back then you're all set!
