He's in school right now, currently in Washington DC. We broke up this past summer because I'm ready to settle down (I'm 28 and in a career) and he's still up in the air (21 and undergrad).
Our relationship is/was marriage material. But, he freaked out about committing while he was in undergrad to the first person he's ever dated/slept with. And I can't say that I blame him. I've had my fun, and think he should have a chance to do the same.
So, we decided to break up with the understanding that hopefully a few years down the road, we can pick it back up again.
I'm not holding my breath. I understand that the likelihood of it actually working out is slim, but ... I can't help it. Still in love with the fucker.
Oh well. Guess only time will tell.
