Friends for now, what's up?

My boyfriend who I recently started dating for a few weeks suddenly told me that we should take a break and stay being just friends for now.

He said that I didn't do anything wrong to break his heart and that he didn't want to break up with me only to end up me being mad at him and not talk to him forever.

I noticed "for now" when he said to just be friends but it just seems so sudden that he asked for us to be "just friends" out of nowhere.

What does it mean when he said that?
