Most Helpful Guy
Simple, the other girl was available and was close at hand. When that changes, he may very well consider you again, especially if time goes by and he is not seeing anyone. Once he finds someone closer, you could well be out of luck again. The distance is part of the problem. You really need to make a stand and not accept him back if he calls, unless there he promises to be monogamous. It doesn't really matter if you believe in that or not for starting a relationship. You need some sort of commitment and he needs to understand it so that the distance is no longer the issue. You are worth it. He needs to start thinking of you as special. The only way, I think, is to hold off and stay only platonic and make that clear unless he says he is willing to be exclusive to you. By the way, this doesn't mean automatically you have to put out. That's still up to you. Holding off is fine. He should consider you important enough that this doesn't matter. Only with this is the distance and his wayward wandering going to resolve to something long term.
