The guy I have been dating (less than 2 mos) told me last night that he shouldn't continue to see me because he doesn't want to hurt me later down the line - this isn't the first time, he said this a couple of weeks ago as well. Both times he has followed it up with that I should get back together with my ex (whom I haven't dated since Feb, but suddenly wants to rekindle a relationship). The conversation always leads to me insisting I have no interest in the ex.
I come up with 3 ways to look at this:
1. Is he concerned about the ex and my feelings toward the ex and testing where I stand?
2. Regardless of the ex, afraid he's going to get hurt down the line?
3. Does really think he will hurt me down the line and wants to spare me the pain?
Thoughts? Other ways to look at it? Suggestions on how to handle it?

what are his reasons for him thinking he's going to hurt you down the line? why is he with you in the first palce if he doesn't somehow see you in his future or see something working out...
id say he's more so towards number 1...but I think you should talk to him, why is he so afraid of commitment, tell him how you feel, ask him what he sees in his future and how it could potentially hurt you...
just open up to one another and try to talk about things before things either end or get out of control...0
