Long story short, he broke up with me about a month ago. It was a rough breakup, we were both in tears. He told me he wanted to remain friends, but I was too hurt at the time and I told him I couldn't talk to him for a while.. Well now I'm starting to get over him and I can handle being friends. I asked him today if he'd still like to be friends, and he said no because he couldn't handle it right now.. Why would he ask to be friends and then turn me down when I bring the idea up to him? It was his idea to begin with!

He may have been so uptight over the whole brawl and break up, that he would have done Anything at the time just to hang in there a little longer...Even if it meant to 'Remain friends.' He wasn't able to cut you loose completely, and still was hanging on to a thin thread.
Now that the smoke has cleared, tears have dried up a bit, he has had time to do some soul searching, and rather than Latch on, he has decided to Move on. He is protecting his heart now. It has started to hit hard, being Rougher than he even thought possible, and he just wants the pain to subside.
Respect his decision. If you really don't see that you both are able to reconcile, then you need to move on yourself. And, being it's a fresh cut yet, perhaps it wouldn't have been so easy just to be pals. The old wounds may have opened up wide again, and could have made it harder to lick them this time around.xx1
