How do you deal with a guy with Relationship Anxiety?

He says he can’t have any kind of relationship with me because there’s just something in his brain that he can’t explain. Whenever he gets close to someone he starts having anxiety & pushes them away, which is what he did to me but he had the decency to give me answers when I asked. He doesn’t even want a just sex thing. But he says he cares about me & it kills him that he’s upset me so much by calling things off. He just wants us to be friends because he loves chatting to me. But I don’t know if I can be ‘just friends’ & I feel like walking away completely because it’s clear he won’t even try with me. I’ve told him I don’t want a relationship & I would be patient & understanding but he said he just doesn’t want the feelings.

I just don’t know what to do for the best
