I'd very much appreciate a man's serious advice!
Most Helpful Guy
Well, for starters, guys do not remain in committed relationships with women who they view as their sisters. Also, real feelings do not dissipate suddenly and swiftly. However, one's perspective and opinion can.
Therefor, I believe that, after pursuing your father's acceptance to marry you and the act of proposing to you, he, after coming to terms with his decision and the arduous effort and sacrifice a marriage requires, simply chickened out and thus had a change of heart.
And, as such, he stated that his feelings for you changed to justify his decision, and to avoid the imposition and complications of explaining his reasons to you and perhaps to your father.
With regards to his feelings for you, I personally feel that his feelings for you are unmoved. He seemingly just does not want to reveal that he still cares, but simply no longer wants to marry at this particular juncture in his life.
So, with your best interest in mind, my advice to you is, convey to him that you want to be with him whether he marries you now or in the future when he is completely certain and ready. That is, if you are willing to wait.
