Yesterday he went to a concert and he hasn't even tried to contact at all this week so far.
Is is he only using me for support when he is sad? What should I do?
YESS!! You are his emotional fluffer, his emotional crutch, his emotional support...
Sorry for that but by what you said, it seems like the reality of the situation here.
You're left waiting in a whirl of confusion as he seems to want to talk to you one moment and then the next he's gone with no communication for awhile.
-he broke things off
-he contacts only when sad
-he doesn't reply.
Everything is on his terms. Selfish and look how it affects you. This is no good.
Does she want you physically now?
He could be. One of the hardest things to let go after a break up is the friendship and support the person gave you. During the relationship your SO becomes the person you always turn to when you have a problem, a person you can vent and talk to about almost anything, and when its over you realize you didn't just lose a lover, but you often just lost one of your best friends as well. Thats why so many people try to remain friends with their exes thinking its a good idea.
He most likely backs off and becomes distant when he realizes that it won't work out again, and realizes that he's getting too close to you. If you want a reconciliation you should ask him what his intentions are with you, and if he jerks you around you should be honest and tell him that the constant hot and cold contact isn't helping you heal and it would probably be best if you two don't talk at all for awhile. It isn't right that he is basically making you an option while you are still making him a priority. You are only setting yourself up for more heartache in this scenario. It is likely that he barely realizes he is doing this to you, and that is why you need to have a conversation with him about it.
