Most Helpful Guy
Whats the point? He already gave you an answer, the only thing you will do by insisting on talking is push him away. Walk away, let him realize his mistake and come after you, If I was you, I would send him a text saying "thank you for showing me a wonderful time and I respect your decision, it will be a good time for me to go explore life as well. Hope we both find happiness, take care". No hearts or love sign, just that. I guarantee you he will text you back and try to see you, at that point, tell him right now the best thing for both of you is to take a complete break with zero communication.
In a week or 2, he will come crawling back..
