Ex of 6 years broke up with me because "he wasn't happy". It's been a year now and he frequently tells me he regrets leaving and he was happy when we were together. We never stopped talking. He's had a couple girlfriends since but has always kept in contact with me. He says he doesn't want to be with me because he doesn't want to hurt me and he just dates these women becasue he doesn't want to be alone. He says he feels like he can't just be with one woman. Is this a phase or do some guys really feel like they can't commit... ever.

I thought the same for a while.
The two times it changed was when I thought I found my soulmate (practically same interests, not 100% match, but maybe 95% match from food to films to music to just about everything, how we viewed the world), only she broke it off.
The second was when I fell in love a second time with someone opposite of me, while simultaneously reaching an age (30s) where... this sounds really bad... but I was just starting to lose attention from females. I couldn't, say, walk into a night club and have women flirt with me. The temptations were going away.
I know that's a horrible reason/confession, but oh well, I think it helped me with the commitment.1
