Backstory: boyfriend and I both in our mid-thirties, been dating for nearly 2 years. First 6 months were amazing, the rest of our relationship has it’s highs and lows, mostly fighting over his work and not spending enough time together or traveling together.
Recently, I moved to a new city and the plan was that he would move up here as well in a few months. We had thought we’d move in together but he said that our fights concerned him and he didn’t think he was ready. To which I replied that if we’re not ready to make this move after nearly 2 years together, maybe it’s time to walk away. I’m not in a rush to be married or anything, but feel like at this stage of our relationship, if we’re not moving forward, that what is really the point. He told me he loved me over and over and said that we would work something out.
He was supposed to come back to see me before I left on a trip and canceled on me last minute over text message, which is highly unlike him and he didn’t even call me to talk that night or once while I was away. His behaviors were all really strange and I spent the weekend in emotional turmoil trying to figure out why my boyfriend just stopped talking to me. He finally replied to me on Sunday and we both agreed to take a break. So, I guess I’m single? This whole thing was so sudden and unlike his typical communication that I’m really having a hard time understanding his behavior. If anyone has any insight, it would be appreciated.
