After we hung out a bit I thought that maybe something was going to happen between us as things seemed to be going that way. But then he revealed that he is seeing someone else (a mutual friend of ours). Which is fair enough, we never actually dated or hooked up and I didn't expect him to wait for me whilst I was dating my ex.
The thing is he was visibly distraught (no exaggeration) when he told me he was seeing someone and according to some of our friends was freaking out about hurting me, before he told me.
So what I am asking is? Why is he so upset?
Does he still have feelings for me?
I don't want him to feel bad. How can I assure him I'm ok?
