I just got out of a pretty serious relationship. My boyfriend and I had been dating for a while, even both saying, “I love you”—until one day he came to me and said, “I don’t love you anymore.” I haven’t heard from him since.
My breakup seems so out of the blue, and I’m feeling very hurt and confused. Did my boyfriend lie about loving me while we were together? How do I handle this complete shut down?
This is a question I’ve actually received numerous times, so I feel like maybe it’s something I should talk about. Just trying to please, people.
And as a bonus, I’ve brought in my padre to help respond to both the women and the men in this situation.
Now I know that not all men jump ship like this, but there are guys who literally shut down in relationships and give no information as to why—and the fact of the matter is that their actions can create deep wounds in the hearts of women.
As we talk about in the video, men and women often have different ways of processing emotion. Whereas women tend to have more integrated personalities, men tend to compartmentalize, leading them to maybe not even think twice about completely severing ties after they’ve decided not to continue in a relationship.
But as my dad cautions, men, you should think twice. Not only to honor your ex, but to honor the One you fashion your life after.
So sit back and watch me and my dad hash out this popular question! And if you stay to the end, I promise there will be a reward that may or may include rock-n-roll.
