Dear T2T: I was dating a guy and we broke up two months ago. He broke up because he said his parents will never accept me. But he told me that he has been going through depression for the last three years. The time we were together was the best. I had never seen him that happy. He really loved me a lot but all of a sudden I don’t know what happened. We never even had a fight. He just changed in a week. What do you think the reason was? He told me that we will never ever get back together again. Do you think he will come back some day? What should I do? I really love him a lot and want him to be happy! Please help! — Whiplash

I understand where this could be hard and you want to do everything in your power to save your relationship with him because you love him so much. You also have to understand his part. It may seem hard and you probably don’t want to, but you should just believe what he’s saying and move on with your life. If his parents won’t accept you then you just have to accept that yourself and move on. It is a sketchy situation and seems hard to know what to do about it all. But you have to trust that he  has his reasons and they are legitimate. You said you wanted him to be happy, so maybe your best bet would be to respect and support his decision to the best of your ability. You also must consider the fact that he might be going through depression where he might not want to talk to friends or doesn’t feel like discussing there problems with anyone. If he is feeling some type of depression than I would recommend that he talk to someone about that. You just have to accept that he might be going through something, the best thing for you to do just accept his decision and move on. Go do your thing and be happy and if he does want to come back to you, I wish you guys the best of luck.

Thank you so much for opening up to us about this issue. We know how hard it can be to open up about this problem. It’s probably nothing you’ve done. During teenage years people often experience many different and unexplainable emotions. There are many reasons for two people to break up. Sometimes their personalities aren’t compatible, Sometimes it is because of fights, but more than often it’s because one of the people don’t feel the relationship anymore. Who know if you guys will ever get back together? The universe is so unpredictable and any thing could happen. Our best advice for you is to not wait on this guy. Get back out there and meet someone who loves you for you. If you’re not ready to date yet focus on you. Do something you enjoy.
