I know, I couldn’t help myself. I have broken up with someone after a little more than three years together. We had been talking about living together and marriage. But we grew in different directions that were just no longer compatible. I saw a chance to break things off while at a restaurant (side note, he was not abusive at all but had a short temper so I was glad for a chance to do this in public) and stumbled through an explanation. I think we met twice after that to give stuff back and talk. After that, clean break, which is for the best.

Would you like this in PowerPoint?

We lived together and dates for 4+ years. I was around 28, attended a friend’s wedding and asked myself if I wanted to marry the guy. Somehow it was a very clear answer in my mind that I don’t want to spend the rest of my life with him. I told him we were growing apart and we had different life goals. He moved out of the apartment and that was it.
