Has anyone broken up with someone over a difference in COVID boundaries? If so, how did you know it was a deal breaker? I’m considering ending my relationship because my partner is too strict (i.e. doesn’t really leave the house for much).

Everyone has a different risk/reward system. To your SO the risk of resuming pre-covid activities doesn't present enough reward to do so. That seems like it's on you to not take their feelings into consideration. This is a global pandemic most people haven't dealt with before. Show some empathy and communicate like an adult.

I get your frustration. My SO cares his elderly parents and his dad very high risk with lung problems. We only do social distance since MArch. I think he too cautious but I want him do what he feels is right. I miss a lot of things our relationship but we talk about it all and do a lot talking/video and outdoor visits social distant. I am focus on keeping connection strong and supporting each other emotionally. Given how long this going not sure what future will bring but so far I feel closer and stronger. There absolutely no one else I want be with and know things will work out...just not on the timetable I hoped for. Hope you find way ahead that works!
