Question:Breaking up with your first love...after six years!

Hello I am 24 years old and I was with my boyfriend for six years. He was everything to me my first sexual parnter my first love my first everything. Not only that but we did alot of my first things in life....going on vacations to business trips to being on an airplane in general. We opened a business about ten months agao and our realsonship did suffer a bit there are things about both of us that had changed and we were bickering alot. We came together just a few days ago to talk which I thought was going to be to fix things when he threw something at me I never expected. He advised me that at my last two jobs he knew people there and one of them is claiming I slept with someone. This is totally false and I never ever cheated on him at all. I asked him if he believed me and he said it didnt matter it mattered on how I let myself get put in that situation and hang out with those types of people. I asked him where this left us and he told me he was single and available..which also hurt more lnowing he was really ready to just move on after six years. Its so hard because I do have to see him due to the business and I would like to stick around for something we worked so hard to build. I am just so upset and angry at the same time. I really need some good advice on how to move on because this is the hardest time ever he was my first everything I replay all the good memories we had over and over again and how even on my next plane ride I will always think about him. At times I am upset and cring like crazy and then other times I am so mad he would believe garbage like that and I want to move on. Please help where do I go from here?????
