Why Did My Boyfriend Leave?

Aug 25, 2008
I'm sure you've seen it in the movies, it seems like every romantic comedy has this scene: the female protagonist, slumped in her sweatpants on her couch, red-faced and puffy-eyed with a Kleenex dangling out of her nose and threatening to plop into her fifty-gallon bucket of ice cream, bawling out desperate pleas to figure out why her boyfriend left her. Even if real life rarely gets that dramatic, breakups feel like that, and being left with that bewildered feeling of not knowing why he left is horrible...so let me help you figure out what went wrong!

There are a number of things that may make a man want to leave, some decent reasons and some stupid reasons. Not all of them can you do anything about, but a lot are pretty easily fixed if it's not too late. You'll find that many relationships can be pulled back together if only you know what was wrong, so I'm going to help you out and list off some of the chief culprits.

1) Girls, you know those movies where the guy has this unbelievably overbearing girlfriend who nags him to no end, calling him every half hour to see where he's at, and every time someone mentions he laughs and jokes about what a demon she is? Well, in real life, the guy doesn't laugh and joke about it, he gets steamed and hates his life. There is very little in this world that will make a guy want to head for the hills like a girlfriend who can't leave him alone.

So try to ease up a bit on the guy, if you catch yourself doing this sort of thing to him. Nobody should have to be constantly looking over his shoulder to see if his girlfriend is still watching him like a hawk. If you don't have trust, you don't have anything, so loosen up on the reins a tad.

2) The sad fact of the matter is that a LOT of relationships are absolutely destroyed by "another person." It can show up in a variety of ways, from another girl coming into his life who seems to be absolutely perfect for him, to one or the other of you two deciding that it's just not worth it to keep your pants on and be faithful to one another. Generally him cheating on you doesn't make him leave you, but I guarantee that if you do it to him he's going to dump you flat on your rear.

It's not a difficult thing to keep from ruining your relationship. Best way is prevention. On YOUR part, it's very simple...don't cheat. Just don't. To keep him from cheating, all you can really do is make sure he's getting what he needs at home. This doesn't necessarily even mean all the kinky sex his heart desires, just the attention he needs from a woman needs to come from you, or else he'll start kinda wandering until he finds it from another.

3) Another thing that really shouldn't ever cause a relationship to die, but consistently does is when a couple lets things get stale and dull. Lack of spontanaeity and "spice" can make things really kind of peter out, and that's really something that should never happen between two people who love each other.

Try keeping things interesting, being spontaneous. Don't be clingy, but spend as much time with him as he's comfortable with. There are guys who need a measure of space to be comfortable, but any decent guy will be glad to spend time with the woman he loves. All you have to do is make that time a reality, and things usually stay warm enough to endure the test of time.

Well, those are a few of the bigger causes of relationships ending with the guy deciding it's time to move on (which is a nicer way of saying "dumping you"). This is by no means the absolute definitive work on relationship killers, but it's pretty complete as far as the main ones go, and a lot of the unmentioned contributors to breakups are at least somewhat related to these three.
