My Partner Doesn’t Break Up With Me But

Anu was going through emotional turmoil for the past 1 month. She has been in a relationship for 1 year and last month when she disclosed to her boyfriend about her past relationship where she was physically involved, it seems that all hell broke loose. Her partner has been unable to accept and digest the fact that she was intimately involved for 5 years. Since then the relationship has been going downhill. He had started ignoring her calls and would reply to her messages in one word. He would get angry for small reasons and begin bringing up her past with every fight.
