So in a nutshell, I pushed my amazing boyfriend away and he left me in mid-June. I know I treated him poorly and have tried everything possible to get him back since he broke up with me. He has said so many times that he needs time and space, yet we text every 3-4 days...he says he still loves me, but I hurt him and he is still angry and disappointed in me. He tells me over and over to be patient and that in time things will work themselves out. He says he isn't ready to go back to us right now and wants to be alone..he says he can't be in a relationship right now, but when he is ready it will depend on where we stand.
I'm just so confused...do I wait? I feel like since I hurt him then I have to wait for him and stand by him, even if he doesn't come back in the end. I'm just worried that I'm going to keep getting hurt...do you think he has intentions of coming back? do I wait and for how long?

I was told something once that just made a ton of sense, given that I was in a similar situation to you. It went something like: "women love stronger, but men love longer."
The point is that while women are frantic about getting the relationship back as soon as possible, the men aren't going anywhere.
Unless of course the girl finally manages to push him away.
In general, and there's nothing saying this will absolutely be true in your case, but in general, if you let a guy have his space and sort things out, he'll still be in love with you.
Of course the trick is that by then, most women have decided to move on...2
