When you break up with someone, do you owe them some sort of explanation as to "why"?
I no longer wanted to see someone recently. The real reason was that his company bored the tears out of me but, he was downright gifted in the bedroom. Strange combination! He could not fathom "why" and attempted to be all approachable (which I found totally irritating) but, would not drop the one question, "what happened"? I had nothing kind to say, didn't want to criticize as it wasn't a personality defect- I just didn't like his personality. I ran into him after a short hiatus and it only reconfirmed the utter yawn factor of his company but, he described the interaction as "great". Not wanting to hurt his feelings with a bleak character assessment- and likely unfair, as it was only MY perception, I offered nothing and avoided it. However, even when being what he thought was "non-threatening", he still wanted to know- "Why" or "What happened?". Is that a mandatory part of the separation process? Is an explanation "owed?
