But it effected him in many ways. He started to really open up to me, but things got really bad at home, cops came etc and pretty much he shut me out, ignored me for days, I had asked him several times if a relationship was what he could handle right now. He would never answer it until finally I got him to meet me face to face. I asked him, he said no he was too toxic in near tears, & seemed so indecisive. I was so crushed but told him us parting was clearly for the best, I needed to be with someone who knew what they wanted although I did want him.
I told him maybe we could be friends but I needed space from seeing eachother and texting.
A month passed and I text him saying I was sorry, that I still cared for him, he was amazing but i couldn't be friends because I thought it would be too much for me. I hope he understood etc
He responds with this huge text apologizing, how much potential I have and how amazing, beautiful, smart, ambitious I am, how he wishes things were different. How it hurts knowing it was him who drove us apart due to lack of effort, communication, and him being so cold. How he is so sorry he took advantage of me and he is also hurting how he "couldn't make himself do it & didn't know why" (Idk if he's talking about committing)? He ends it with you are brilliant and will find someone better, you deserve better.
Is this an honest apology, why wouldn't he try harder? Or just BS?
