IMPORTANT 1: The other day he left his phone and computer at the house with me accidently (he is usually very private about these things.) so many pics of his ex on his computer and one of them hanging out within the last month. I asked him to be honest with me and he was. he said he still loves her and that she asked him to get back together recently but he said no because "how they broke up, his pride won't allow him to be with her in that way again" but that she will always be important to him and if she needs him he will be there for her. He told me that they talk twice a week but never did anything sexual.
IMPORTANT 2: He tells me he really cares about me and I am important to him and the only real friend he has made in years. He is sorry I go the short end of the stick but after his break up it really hurt him and he doesn't want to jump into a relationship like that again. He hopes that from how he treats me I understand that he really cares for me (he kinda supports me I guess.) H doesn't want me to distance my self from him and he doesn't know what the future holds because he hasn't figured out what he even wants in life yet?
QUESTION: what does all of that mean? and what should I do? pls be brutally honest, I don't think I want to keep attaching myself to someone who is basically telling me I'm just something to keep him busy right now...is that what he's say?
