Is he confused? Or just trying not to hurt me? help understanding my ex?

I broke up with my boyfriend two weeks ago. I never saw him and he wasn't treating me right. It was hard because his mother was in control of his life and she would find ways to make him busy. It made us both mad. I thought it was the right thing to do. But now I feel like I lost a part of myself. I miss him so much. I'm still in love with him as I have been for these past 10 months. I talked to him earlier today because when we parted, we decided it was the wrong time but we should remain in each other lives as friends. After talking about us and what happened, he told me that even though we were in love, he was afraid of love because of how "new" it was to him. How can you be afraid of love when we've dated for so long?

Please translate this for me
