sounds like he can handle being friends but he is asking you if you can handle it, usually keeping distance means he hasn't gotten over you, but if you remain friends... you never know what can happen!

It is up to you if you can handle being friends, do not do something that will hurt you more. Some people stay friends with their ex because they do not picture their life without them... does that mean there is a chance to reconciliation, only time will tell.
