Guys, I'm curious to know if he will change his mind?

I have to disagree with "bobair" on this one having been down this road myself. But please - these are all opinions so in the end you have to choose the best decision for yourself. IMHO, the best, most lasting relationships - are not the ones built out of "love at fist sight" or any other hollywood movie material; but come from a developed love and respect of another person, who you have grown to know as a friend, and finally recognized all of the beauty, and have even learned to love the flaws - of this person, and finally realized you were in love with them. This sounds like your case to me. You need to figure out what you really want. Regrets hurt a lot more, when you start getting old..."It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all".1
How will it feel to be with someone who you had to force into loving you back, by pushing him completely away first? Won't it feel... I don't know... less good than if he wanted what you wanted up front? Won't you have doubts that he's simply lonely?
It's possible he'll come crawling back but the reality is that you're more mature and obviously self aware than he is. And so you pretty much deserve to seek out someone more your level.
He's clearly saying that he loves how you make him feel, but that he wants to keep his other options open. I'm not sure how this makes you want him more... I hope you move on.
It's likely a shitty situation for you, I hope you feel better soon!
P. S. There's nothing as good at helping you get over an ex as meeting someone new worth getting to know.1
