I started dating this guy and recently he told me that he can’t see himself being in a serious relationship with me. He had valid reasons. He asked if we could be friends and I said yes. I said that I needed a few weeks to emotionally recollect, but I also said I would contact him when I am ready to pursue a friendship. We weren’t dating all that long (probably less than 2 months), but I still feel this desire to see him. We are currently not talking and I feel so saddened. I want to see him, and the rejection kinda hurts. Is this a normal feeling? And is taking an emotional-break a good idea? Can we really be friends?
