I told my guy friend that I liked him but if he doesn't feel the same way it's cool and we could continue being friends. His reply was "I just don't want to get hurt ya know?" Then he said "it's not that I don't like you... it's just too complicated of a situation to have feelings" then I said yeah I understand and I would never hurt anyone but I just had to tell you because I'm honest. Then he replied back saying "I'm proud of you" I don't get it tho I know from what he said he doesn't like me but I don't get what he means (the above)? What do you think I should do? Do you think he doesn't like me for sure and he just wants to remain friends forever? I don't know if this has anything to do with what he said but like a month ago he told me about his ex girlfriend and about how they've been together for a lot of years and were planning to get engaged but she cheated on him, so he said he was really hurt from that.
