He responded witha calm, and respectful message as to why he can't take that risk again. I didn't message him after that until yesterday, with a heartfelt message and how I want him to be part of my graduation next week, if he still cares that is and that I really want to work it out.
24 hours has passed, and he never responded. How could he just disappear like that. He didn't even try to fight for us. I don't get it. People tell me to give him more time, and when my graduation comes then I will really know if he cared or not but it looks like a blur.

(This is Tinkerbell) I've been in this situation, but I was the one that "disappeared". In his mind he probably feels like he has been trying to fight for your relationship or friendship. Telling you he "couldn't take that risk again" was probably very difficult for him. But it is probably what he feels is necessary. This solution was probably his last resort and you just pushed him over the edge. I don't know if he will or won't come back. But the very best thing you can do right now is give him his space and stop trying to talk to him. The more you don't respect his decision to leave, the more he will feel he made the right choice by doing that. However, if you don't text him, and don't let him see how upset you are by this, and carry on with your life, he will eventually cool off and probably try to reach a rational solution that isn't so hurtful and permanent.

Maybe he just got tired of everything
