Dating after 5 year relationship

After a couple has been together for three years, they are probably serious enough to know whether or not they want to be together for the long run; yet, the relationship is new enough to end it fairly easily if they don't see it going anywhere.

I've been dating the same guy since i was 18 and we moved in together about a year ago. I am wondering if this is how he is dealing with his father's death that took place less than a year ago and his impending college graduation. I ended an engagement with my high school sweet heart after 5 years, actually....really I the above poster had it right when he said the guy was probably just as confused if not more so than you.At this point, we are faced with two choices: 1) Let go and plummet down into the depths of "never-to-be-seen-again" or 2) Struggle hard to get both feet on solid ground and revive the relationship.The person in the relationship who chooses to let go after a few years usually comes up with the worst excuses:“I’m just not in love with you anymore.” “I can’t pinpoint what it is exactly, but it just doesn’t feel right.” “You are such an awesome person and there’s nothing wrong with you; I just don’t feel like this is going anywhere.”For all of you who have been mindf*cked by someone who said something along these lines, trust me, you are not alone. Also, be there for him, losing a parent must be very hard, but as you are being there for him, don't forget to be there for yourself as well.

If you love him and he loves you then you guys will decide on what is best in both of your guys interests.

Emotionally, you both understand each other’s mechanisms like no one else does.
