Sorry to have kept everyone waiting - again :)
So the relationship ended two years ago and lasted all of six months, which unfortunately speaks against"the times" or the relationship lasting decades and them just outgrowing each other ..
I'm struggling to find the meaning in it as well! I Like I said, I think he's keeping it deliberately vague, but his date's reaction's really understanding, like she knows exactly what he's talking about..
I'm leaning toward's # 8 interpretation.
thanks everyone, for taking part in another one of my guessing games :)
