So I never stopped liking my ex. We have been broken up for over a year. Recently we were getting back on track, (a little). He said he's kind of scared to talk to me in person, because I make him feel different (he can't explain it) in a good way and he doesn't know how to express it. Were were texting & he agreed with me saying he thinks it might work out between us if we tried dating again. Then 2 days later I texted him saying, If you think we are going to work then prove it, I'm trying but you need to try too.. (cause he said he was going to text me after work but ignored me & didn't answer) anyway PLEASE GUYS.
***Explain this to me: He said " I really would like to try and make it work with you, but right now's not the time for me. I'm sorry, & I understand if you don't wait around forever for me. I just have a lot on my plate right now & a relationship isn't the top thing on my priority list. I still have feelings for you though." now this guy is known as a man whore somewhat. but I feel like I'm different to him & his feelings are genuine. PLEASE help me. (btw I haven't talked to him in weeks)

he's obviously scared. it's most likely a pride thing for him. if he's know as a manwhore and gets with many women, he doesn't expect a girl to mean much to him in a deeper sense. you obviously do that to him, which is why he is panicking. he is having a battle within himself whether to commit to someone he know is worth his time, or continue on in his ways. he's scared of the commitment, not of you, which means he is just insecure. it sounds like he has strong feelings for you, which explains his distance. you know your heart better than anyone else. and he is struggling with his. he may come around, or he may not. nothing is absolute. but you have to figure out within yourself whether he is worth the time and your heart. he may have other things he is dealing with, but it sounds like he just said the "you don't have to wait around for me" thing just because he wants to see if you really like him. sometimes people don't know what they really have until it's gone. and if it doesn't work out with you two, he'll regret it in his heart somewhere down the road and be upset he didn't take the leap. that's just how life works sometimes. much luck to you guys though.1
