Most Helpful Girl
He split from the Good Ship that he had with you, to venture out and 'Play the field,' and to to test the waters. He is Not Ready nor Raring at this time to be hooked like an anchor in being in a Real Relationship, and in order to keep you around, he wants his cake and Eat it too.
He is giving you lame duck excuses of keeping you in his back pocket with this so-called 'Break and had to set a date for us to get back together.' I don't know how long he expects you to Keep this marked on your calender but I would tell him To... Not hold his breath, you may have sailed elsewhere and you both would have been like two ships that sailed in the night.
I see 'Straight through his crap' too here, dear, so better set him straight about The... Date.
I think he will 'Regret it' if he wakes up some morning and realizes what he lost.
Good luck. xx
