A few days went by without a word, then a week ago he wrote me and told me that he's going through a lot of stress, and that he's not even really sure he wanted to break up. He's told me that he needs time and space to figure out his own head. He wrote that he'd like to talk to me at some point, but he can't do that until he has had space and time, and that he doesn't know what he wants me in his life as yet.
I've respected his request for silence and space, but at the same time, I keep thinking about when I can call him.
Is it okay for me to call him ever? If so, when? How long should I wait?
I miss him such a lot, and though I know we will probably never get back together, he's someone that I would like to be able to be friends with. It's killing me not being able to call him and just say hi.
