I've been talking with an acquaintance online for a year now and we have developed a flirty relationship and he's said that he is interested in me BUT is overwhelmed with depression, social anxiety and fears of commitment from past relationships. I tried waiting around for him but after a while said that if he didn't want to try to see where things went that I was moving on. He said he was still interested but that because of his issues, anyone who would wait around for him would be crazy... And then he said he wants me to be happy and thinks that I should give this guy who's been hitting on me a chance instead of just being disappointed by him. I showed that I was reluctant but I have the other guy a chance and we have now gone on 4 dates. I thought my friend would be okay with it since he encouraged me to explore my options, yet now he is talking to me way less and being brief or bringing up this guy in a sarcastic/rude joking way. What does this mean?

He's just having emotional imbalance suffered from low self esteem. What you can control now is your thinking, actions, you can't do for him in this part.0
