(New to this sub, but have found some posts that really seem familiar to what I've recently been through)

Someone commented back to me the other day saying to beware a LVM posing as HVM. I think that basically defines my ex boyfriend. He seemed so secure, stable, and ready to settle down (and vocalized this) but a year into dating he no longer wanted a relationship, didn't know if he wanted to ever be married, didn't know if he wanted to stay in this area and just wanted to up and move...and I basically realized he can't communicate or commit.

What are some signs that a guy isn't actually HV but basically just presenting himself as such? As in, how can I figure this out without being with someone for a year and getting my heart broken?
