Does he not care, or is he hurting too? Guys, please answer honestly.

My ex boyfriend broke up with me exactly 3 weeks ago. Tomorrow will be exactly 2 weeks no contact.

The last time we spoke to each other I was upset, and had some things that I really wanted to get out to him. (I know, it was foolish, but I felt better after I got it out)

I didn't beg or plead with him, but I made it clear that I knew what went wrong (he got fed up with my insecurities and dealing with the stress of the relationship) and that if we were to ever get back together things would be very different, in a good way.

I also told him (even know its not completely true..) that I accepted his decision to end things, and that I was moving on with my life because I won't wait for him (also a lie, but hey)

He said he cares about me and wants to be friends, which is bullsh*t I know, but he's close friends with his last ex, and I really don't see him as being the type of guy to be a jerk and not ever talk to me again.

Its been 2 weeks, and I deactivated my Facebook today because I can't stand the temptation of looking at his profile and waiting for him to remove the pictures of us. He also changed his status to 'widowed', which I don't understand..

My question is, from a male perspective, do you think he is trying to do me a favor and let me get on with my life by not contacting me, or does he truly not care? I know he has asked a mutual friend that has seen me recently how I'm holding up, but that is the extent of it.

Do guys ever regret breaking up with a girl who truly cared about them and was good to them and come back? With every passing day I feel like the answer to that is becoming more and more obvious.. but he said he just doesn't want to be in a relationship anymore, and I know he isn't seeing (or trying to see) anyone else.

Has anything like this ever happened to anyone? Please, share your stories and thoughts..
