Our expert says:
In the old days, a woman in a situation like this could sue the guy for "breach of promise", but I haven't heard of such a case for many years. If he wasn't ready to commit, you're probably well rid of him --- but why on earth would he get engaged to you ( presumably announcing the engagement ? ) and arrange for you to move in, if he was so scared of committment that he would break this all off so soon afterwards ? Unreasonable and cruel.
However, don't let this disappointment encourage you to even think of harming yourself--- if this is how he behaves, youre better off without him even if it doesn't feel that way just yet ; and no point in punishing yourself for someone else's stupidity. Call Lifeline for someone to talk to, and consider counselling to get through this period of upheaval. And then get an appropriate revenge on him by living well and hapilly, and in time, finding a relationship with a real man which will become permanent and happy.
