hey so I need some advice on my relationship. my boyfriend of 2 years and 5 months and I recently took a small break from each other. it wasn't his idea, it was all me, and he was crushed when I asked for this break. I only needed a couple of days and so then I texted him how much I love him and how sorry I was for hurting him. Now he is willing to be in a relationship with me, but I have to pull my weight. he was so crushed by the break that at one point he was crying so much that he began to choke. he doesn't even want to look back at all the memories we made for the past 2 1/2 years. he wants to start completely from scratch but that is really hard considering the fact that we are both about an hour away from each other and we both don't have cars to see each other, not to mention our busy schdeules. So we would only see each other once a month. I guess the advice that I need right now is, what can I do to show him that I am serious about our relationship and that I am ready to truly be with him. Also, did I do the right thing?
And ok, thank you! @sophiamor
I just needed time because the fact that I never get to see him was really building up in me.
Well, why did you ask for a break in the first place? Was it just to have time to think? I think if you really find the root of why you needed a break, you can see if you did the right thing. As far as showing him your feelings, just be honest with him but also respect that he'll be hurt for a while - just support him and give him the time he needs.
