Dumping Entitlement

When you partner dumps you, they go through a period of deliberation deciding if they should leave. To solidify their decision to go, they vilify you. Keep in mind your partner is thus not predisposed to treat you fairly or compassionately. He may even think you deserve punishment. So don’t expect him to rationally discuss why he decided to leave. If you demand it, you will be sorely disappointed, and you will suffer needlessly. You will have to figure it out for yourself from all the small clues he gave you in the preceding year.
