My ex and I have been apart for about 6 or 7 months now. I ended things. He was devastated and begged me to reconsider for about a month and half after we broke up. Basically it seemed there were just too many issues to contend with and I eventually decided we couldn't get back together - even though I really loved him. He loved me too (apparently more than any other girl and he wanted to marry me). Two months after we finally cut all contact, I heard he had moved on. I on the other hand, said no to every single guy who asked me out because I felt too guilty to say yes. Anyway, fast forward a couple of months... So three months after NC, I texted him saying it had been a long time and that I hoped he was keeping well. He replied like 2 hours later, saying he was doing well and asked me how I was. I causally replied and he never replied back to my text. He is so cold and standoffish towards me. I realise that I hurt him & I was deeply sorry for that. So is it safe to assume that his silence is a clear message that he no longer cares/loves me? and that he has truly moved on? I can't deny that I still love him and it's affecting any chance of me moving on with another guy which is frustrating because I have been approached by sooo many guys and I can't bring myself to go for it...

'He is so cold and standoffish towards me. I realise that I hurt him & I was deeply sorry for that."
Sometimes being sorry isn't enough. You destroyed his world, and left him to pick up the pieces. It's a hard road to get past that, and once you do, you don't really want to risk that kind of devastation again.
You hurt him once, what's to stop you from doing it again?3
