Have you considered the fact that maybe you're just not meant to be together forever? I know most of us were raised on fairy tales and would like our first "true love" to last forever, but honestly, that's not how it works most of the time. Most folks date lots of people before settling down for just one person, and even then a large percentage ends up separated or divorced and thus hopping on the dating wheel all over again.
Furthermore, there's nothing wrong with wanting to be single for a while. In fact, I think it's an excellent idea NOT to jump immediately into a new relationship after breaking up an old one. Being single gives you time to find your own headspace and spend time with friends and family. It's also an excellent opportunity to think about what you want in a partner so maybe you'll go into your next relationship a little less blindly.
Relationships have their ups and downs. Should you break up with this guy? Only you can decide that. The only thing I would definitely advise is that if you do break up, you should do it for YOU, not for some other guy.
