Did he have in mind to break up with you a long time before he actually took the step? - TIP

In many cases, yes!

A break up is an important decision and usually people don't take that decision lightly.

If he was in a relationship with you, it means that he probably enjoyed at least some part of it.

He probably hesitated for some time before deciding to take the step.

During this trial period when he is not sure what to do yet, he listens to his feelings and tries to get a pick into his future.
