Wow, sounds like something a middle schooler would do. It's only been a month after all.
Well I'm trying not to judge here, so sorry. But unlike (I'm assuming he's now an ex) boyfriend, I like to keep things at a steady pace and not get too attached too quickly in case things like this happen. I know that her (ex) boyfriend is not me, so you don't have to remind me. I'm not trying to start an all out debate on the matter, I'm just voicing my opinion. That's what the comments are for, after all.
.....seriously 24? I had a boyfriend kind of like this. we only dated for three months and were in a casual relationship (as we both agreed to) and when I dumped him he was like "you make me fucking sick" and "I GAVE YOU EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!" I was like holy shit I dated a pussy...
You've got to be kidding me. What is she supposed to do, stay with a guy she clearly doesn't want to be with forever just because he'd be hurt if she broke up with him? If you don't want to be with someone, breaking up with them is FAR nicer than faking it. And there's nothing to indicate she did it in a mean way. All we know is that she did it in person, which is a point in her favor.
Kudos to you for breaking up with him in person rather than by text. He would have probably handled it much worse (like crying for 10 hours on your couch) if you did that.
This might come off a little (or a lot) asshole-ish/heartless, but I think in this situation I would prefer to have broke up via text. Him crying 10 hours somewhere else besides my sofa is better than him consuming 5 hours of my life sobbing like a maniac. Move on, plenty of fish in the sea. Seriously...
Perhaps you are his first, making him so emotional about it. And SMS is always the best.
