Most Helpful Girl
With being as wise as I am here, dear, it doesn't have to be etched in stone, the writing on the wall and all is, he doesn't want to be hooked at the hip with You or anyone right now, for it Seems------He never wanted nothing serious not even a relationship with her...
However, no matter what, he always runs back to you, the girl in his life for 'one year, 10 months' and hopefully counting. Although he may not want to be in a Real relationship, he is still Missing the Kissing and feels the most comfy and cozy with you, even though things are what they are at the moment.
I wouldn't say he isn't 'Being dumb' right now, but an Honest John in his own personal feelings. He may still 'Loves me' and maybe things will never go back to the Way we were but one thing is for sure, you both have a chemistry and some magic that may end up keeping you friends and loving one another till the end.
Good luck. xx
