He isn't ready for a relationship. What do I do?

I started dating this guy 2 months ago. He had gotten out of a 3 year relationship about a month before that. She really hurt him but he told me he was ready to move forward. Fast forward to last week, he tells me he isn't ready for a relationship and that it all caught up to him. He said it's not fair to me and doesn't wanna lead me on. He said he needs to be okay with being alone and heal from the hurt in his heart and hopefully when that time comes we can be together. He told me he doesn't expect me to stick around but he'd appreciate it if I do. I'm giving him space because I know that's what he needs and I hope that in time if we are meant to be we will be. It's just hard I want to talk to him but I know I need to give him space. I have days where I feel good and days were I don't feel good. Any advice? Opinions on this? I'm open to hearing them because I'm a bit all over the place emotionally at the moment.
