Often, immaturity and emotional unreadiness also play a role as we try to navigate life with a significant other.

One user shared, “It was a series of small things building up, a handful of big things that I overlooked while trying to make things work as long as possible. The short of it boiled down to drinking.”

A second user said, “My ex broke up with me because I wasn’t a church-going virgin. Took him over a year and a lot of s****x to figure that one out.”

A third user recalled, “My girlfriend at the time called me from my best friend’s house saying she was in his bedroom and they just had s****x. At first, I thought it was a poor excuse for a joke. Then I heard him in the background asking who she was calling. I was done with both of them.”

This poster added, “I was dropping her off at home, and her next date was there waiting. It was a really odd experience considering we’d been dating for a few months.”

To Be Dumped

A Redditor said, “He cheated on me, then he fell in love with her and mooned over her til she dumped him a month later. It was good to hear, but it didn’t help my broken heart!”

Too Young

This user posted, “She wanted marriage and kids and to settle down. We were 21 and had been together for 4 years. Just too young. I could’ve seen myself going down that road with her, but I was not ready for that type of commitment.”

A top-liked comment said, “He was just with me because he lived too far away from the girl he “really” wanted. Strange, really; when I found out and talked to the other girl, he used to say the same things to both of us, send us both the same pictures, same compliments.”

One user said, “She had continuously cheated on me, I only found out after we planned and paid for our trip to Aruba. We went to Aruba, I made sure to have fun anyway. I broke up with her when we landed back home pretty much.”

Breaking & Entering

This Redditor recalled, “She broke into my house and called me from my home phone when I wouldn’t hang out with her. It was like something out of a horror movie.”

A user added, “He was a narcissist who cheated on me with underage girls. I say was as if he probably isn’t anymore. He had a lot of issues.”

This user mentioned, “He became physically abusive after years of being mentally abusive. I didn’t even realize he was mentally abusive until I was out of the situation. Lots of gaslighting.”

College Relationships

One user recalled, “We’d been together for 8 years, she started university after the 6th year. Got a house together, and that’s when things started going downhill. She would go on “nights out with the girls” every other weekend. Then, one day I was talking to a friend of hers, and she asked me where she was because she never sees her anymore. I responded by saying, “Don’t you guys go out every weekend together?” She responded it’s been months since they hung out. I questioned my girlfriend about this, and that’s when I found out she was with another man. To add to this, after her friends found out that I knew. They told me it was a string of men since starting university. I packed my stuff and moved out. Hurt like hell to lose my partner/best friend of 8 years.”

Substance Addiction

A Redditor divulged, “I told her I didn’t want to be in a relationship anymore when things ended. Truth is, I was descending into what would be a years-long on-again-off-again battle with alcoholism and didn’t want to drag her down with me. She deserved better. Haven’t dated anyone since. I’m still broken.”

A top-liked comment said, “I walked in on him f****king someone. Well, it wasn’t just anyone, it was a good friend of mine. She texted me a couple of years ago to say he cheated on her, and she wanted to be friends again. Nope.”

A user shared, “She was jealous of any female that breathed the same air I did. Seriously, it was awful. She’d get jealous over female servers, movie ticket takers, anyone!” After too long of this, I broke it off with her.”

Psychotic Behavior

This Redditor recalled, “He constantly talked about r****ping me, I couldn’t tell if it was a joke, but either way, I was not amused. He also told me I was going to he**** because I was raised an atheist. He slept with his guy friends, and he said it didn’t count as cheating because it was with a guy.”

One poster commented, “She was a clingy psychopath who put a tracker if my car. She wanted to rule every facet of my life. Needed to know where I was at every minute of every day.”

Not A Confidant

A commenter added, “My first and only relationship. I got really sick, and he told me not to talk about it because it bummed him out. Here I am with blood cancer, and I can’t confide in my fiance because it hurts his feelings. I truly believe that man was a narcissist.”

Can’t Deal With Emotions

This Redditor said, “My douche ex broke up with me the day my grandmother died because it was too emotional for him to handle. He never even met her, but it was apparently too emotional for HIM.”

Polar Opposites

Finally, a Redditor shared, “We were together 3 years, took each other’s virginity, and had great times together. By 19-20, we were growing apart; her into a cop/military, and me into a pot-smoking hippie. Obvious compatibility issues moving forward.”
