I think he realized that he can't believe in marriage because of what his father did. So he's afraid of abandonment. Tell him you won't leave. more »

This is what love it. This /\/\/\ He has told you he is afraid of abandonment. If you truly love him, you have to respond that he doesn't need to fear that about you. Be his rock. more »

Gonna give a different answer. First - walk away, but IF he gets back in touch with you, give him one chance. And tell him, he has one chance. Sometimes people break up because they are scared and more »
