Wondering about what guys want
Hi. I am a 25year old female. My ex bf and I are still very close as friends and often chat.We broke up this year when his business he owns was going through a rough patch (no money coming in etc, he was working LONG hours) as he needed to concentrate on that and felt that he could not be the bf i needed (his time etc). I still really love him, we often talk, we call and sms each other. We are supposed to just be "taking a break" - am i kidding myself or could he maybe still love me? I also needed to grow up and change and not be as demanding (I know this for myself - when enough people tell u this it must be true!!) of people and their time, be more independant etc. I think I now am (I love my own time, doing my things and being with friends) I wouldlove to try work it out with him? Could that possible happen? How independant do guys like girls to be?

Sounds like he behaved rather responsibly in trying to sort out his major business problems and in worrying about not at that stage being able to care for you sufficiently well. The decision to part AT THAT TIME could well have been made lovingly, and it is possible that you two might get back together again --- but maybe this is something you need to ask him ? It's always good for you to grow up, and to be less demanding. Maybe some relationship counselling, if you two decided to get back together again, would be useful
