Hello Pauline,
Gee, there are so many reasons why any person might feel guilty ! And in the situation you seem to be describing, it sounds as if you're not sure why he fels guilty, because you don't think he did anything wrong ? Well, maybe he and you didn't do anything wrong in breaking up, but that doesn't stop him from feeling guilty --- that only requires that you THINk it was wrong, however right it was. And like is complicated. Maybe he feels, rightly, that it was right to break up, but he feelssad, and guilty, that you were hurt when that happened.
