Long Distance is *always* difficult in any relationship, especially for one that involves children. A long distance relationship for a short while can be survived - but after a while both people want to have "someone there" by their side. It sounds like he got to that point.

I have an ebook about getting your ex back -


but it really seems like the distance here is the issue. You two need to make a decision. Can one of you move to be with the other? If neither of you ever plans on moving, then it's not going to work. Either you both make the commitment to give this a real try - or it's best if you instead find people locally that you CAN be with to focus on.
