My ex boyfriend and I have been talking again for months after we took a few months apart. We started to get really close again, I really love him and wanted to work on getting back together again but slowly as friends first, and he told me the same thing and he would flirt with me all the time and basically talk as if we were back together. However he went through some personal issues and became depressed, and I have been by his side for years and I have supported him through this, just doing little things to make him feel better, like motivating him and sending him gifts and nice texts and ensuring he knows he's not alone. I tried my best to make him happy. I gave him so much importance and sacrificed my months to be there for him. I gave him space and was so understanding of his situation. Now his feelings have completely changed, he tells me he has no feelings for me and doesn't love me, and told me to stop forcing myself on him and just be generally rude about everything and he doesn't care for me anymore and it's like everytime I share my feelings they don't matter now. He told me that he tolerates me. Everything was fine before his depression and now it's all changed and I'm scared it will always be this way. I try so hard to impress him and do everything the right way and not make any mistakes, like I did with our past and I feel like I'm not good enough.. I don't want to give up on him because of his depression and his issues but I really want to be with him in the future and it crushes me. What did he mean by he tolerates me..
