We have not started dating yet. He was sharing his thought. Will that imply he won't commit to me?
So, what does he want then? Just friendship? Nothing?
You're absolutely right.
He says that he doesn't want a friends with benefits. He wants an emotional relationship with me. But not much strings attached as it gives him stress. His past relationship had been stressful and draining.
That's understandable. It makes sense and the good thing is that he's being clear about it. So take him at his word but don't try to look for more if he doesn't tell you he wants more. I know the feeling of hoping the commitment will come, if only... if only I'm not like the ones who hurt him in the past. And while that's good, because you don't want to hurt him, the desire to commit may never come. Or it will, but because he works through his own stuff.So the choice is yours. Doesn't sound like he's trying to use you but you know where he stands. you can still enjoy whatever you have now

He says he doesn't want me as a fuckbuddy either.
Well, then you are only figuratively fucked. As sad as this might sound, I advise against this. A hurt guy is not a stellar partner. Learned that the hard way.
