My boyfriend and I dated for 2 years and recently he decided to end things about two months ago. I tried doing no contact and after 15 days I wished him a happy birthday with a gift because he told me he was really depressed prior to NC. After that I kept no contact for another 2 weeks. Then he contacted me saying that he’s been missing me a lot. He asked me about my life since I moved. Again he told me he was depressed. I tried to comfort him. However he kept asking if I was okay and said he wanted to make sure I was happy. And now he’s growing distant. I tried texting him the other day but he was very short. I also found out from a friend that he went on a date the day after he said he missed me. Does he really miss me or is this a way to keep me as his security blanket?
