I think thats a bullshit excuse.  If you arent ready to be in a relationship, you should have known that WAY before 2 years.

Yup. Besides, chances are that when you are ready, you won't be going back to the same person. Call it what it is, you don't really want to be with that person.

It depends. Some people stay in a relationship because it's comfortable. I have a friend that was with someone for 6 years and they broke up because they realized they weren't ready to be serious. That same friend thinks that DH and I rushed our marriage when we had been together for two years. Everyone is different.

Same with this guy who broke up after six months saying he realizes be doesn't want to be a sf. Okay you couldn't tell me this before I invested my heart in this relationship? He has his own kids too...

Yes. Any reason is a valid reason.

If you don't want to spend your time with someone, that's OK.

I would think not after two years.. Maybe 2 weeks or 2 months though.

Maybe it took him 6 months to realize he didn't want to spend his life with you and your kids.

That doesn't make him a bad person.

Should he have stayed and wasted more of your time to avoid hurt feelings?
