I found one of these men. He broke up with me three or four times in the first few months. He’d spent his youth chasing relationships and then decided to get comfortable being alone. He’d been single for five years when we met, and I terrified him.
Funny (tragically) how they just decide, isn’t it? And even when he talks to you about it, it’s no use, because he will talk from a point of view of having already decided what’s best for the both of you. It becomes a talk for the sake of being able to say you both had a talk about it, but it’s not a conversation because he’s not there to listen…
What the others have said: exquisite, a beautifully rendered piece.
I’m an introverted guy though nowhere near as accomplished as your prototype. For your piece to ring true, for me, you’d need to make a slight adjustment.
It’s you that will leave him. Every time.
