I had a date planned with this guy tonight who had recently ended a relationship. We have gone out a few times. However, I received a text from him this morning, saying this...
"I hate doing this but I have to be honest. I'm really not ready to start seeing people right now. It's been a weird process for me and you seem like an awesome girl who is secure with your life and I'm really not right now. I should be ready to move forward right now but I'm not and it's just not fair to you at all if you can't see the best side of me. I'm sorry when things calm down in my life I would love to explore the idea hanging out with you more".
I haven't replied, but was thinking of saying this...
"That's understandable. It seemed to me that that was the case, and I wanted to give you your space. I enjoy hanging out with you, and would love to remain friends. Let me know if you ever need to talk..."
Please let me know what you guys think! I'd love a male perspective here as well.
I won't be contacting him again unless he contacts me.
My next question is, do you think he will be back around?

I think your reply is straight and to the point. A rare glimpse into handling rejection maturely. Kudos to you.1
