Most Helpful Guy
I know it hurts right now but like other people say, you will get better.
Also, remember he told you he's not ready. If you really like him you will listen to him and try to make him happy and not force something that he doesn't want. It sounds hard but it's really easy: just tell him you hear what he's saying and okay, we'll just be friends.
This is the best bet for getting back as well, since you'll allow him time to miss you, if he is so disposed.
I hope this helps a bit. Just stay with it, you'll feel better.
