I think you’ve taken steps to better yourself,which is great, but remember that you can only choose to change yourself, not others. 

This was both of your first relationship, and believe me, you will learn SO much from subsequent relationships. But for now I think you need to both move on. It sounds like his confidence is low, and I don’t think you can give that back to him. I think you could both do with some space, maybe even to the point of trying a new relationship… and if you’re meant to be, you’ll find each other at much better points in your lives 🙂 OR you’ll find someone better.

 

My ex and I broke up on excellent terms when I was 22 because I wanted to move to Asia. We were both still deeply in love and we couldn’t imagine anyone else could possibly compare. Then 18 months later I found FI by chance, and he has completely exceeded my expectations. In fact, looking back I could see that my ex weren’t all that compatible at all, we were just clouded by hormones etc. Maybe you’ll have the same experience?

 

I hope you and he find happiness 🙂
