  • Why would he be wrong for ending a relationship that doesn't feel right to him?
    Sounds like she has some growing up to do (she's young!), and if he's in a different place in his life, then he certainly has the right to move on.

  • 18 to 23 doesnt look like a big age gap but it really is...especially if he's a mature 23 and shes an immature 18.

  • Relationships are, or at least ought to be, "fire at will"--either party has to be able to terminate them at any time without proving to anybody else why they had to end.

  • At 18 I had no idea what I wanted to do in life either. She just sounds like she hasn't experienced much but that's probably due to her young years. If he didn't like her or want to deal with helping her experience life then it was ok to move on. He's young. He'll date lots of girls.

  • It's never wrong when either person wants to a relationship. It obviously means that it isn't working for one of them. Therefore, the relationship will not work, because it takes two people! They are both young and need to experience the world. If it is meant to be, it will be and they may cross paths again. I bet, though, that after a few years, both of them will be different people. It's unwise to stay in a relationship for too long if it isn't likely to work out. Young adults need to learn to shop around. They are not just picking anyone to spend of their lives with, right? She will also be better off having experienced a breakup sooner than later. It builds resilience. Then, later on when it happens again, she can look back and say that she survived it before and have confidence that she will get through it. This is helping her esteem. Just wish her well and let her know that she will have many loves in her life.

  • They are both still young (and, IMO, she's very young). You don't really need a "reason" to end a relationship at that age.
