Until two weeks ago I'd been in a relationship with my boyfriend since September (8 months).
I thought we were happy and he always seemed pleased to have me and content, we argued occasionally but it was nothing major and we didn't have many issues.
He suffered a family bereavement in April and since then seemed to be distancing himself from me, he never asked for space or a break but we'd talk less and less.
Like i said, two weeks ago he said he couldn't handle things anymore, he didn't want it to affect me and wanted to end things between us.
I got where he was coming from but does this seem like a phase of grief that he'll get over and he will eventually want to reconcile? What is the likelihood of us getting back together given the circumstances and how long would it take?
We haven't spoken since then, I'm 19 and he's 21, it wasn't long distance and i don't believe there would have been another girl.
Who do you think it is...
