December 14 - he sent me a message apologizing and said he needed time to think, but in the mean time, he wanted he to know that he cared deeply for me and wants me to be happy. I didn't respond to his message.
December 18 - he sent me another message saying that he set up an appointment to go see a therapist on the 28th. I didn't respond to his message.
I'm not sure how to handle it. Maybe I need a bit more time too.
Any suggestions or advice? Is this him trying to make an effort? Is it possible to make this work? It's so hard!
