Answer: He was letting you down gently. And at least he actually said something to your face instead of keeping you around until he found someone new. A man who wants will want to keep you. He's not gonna give you that oh I'm not ready [censored]. He's going to be ready. And he's going to want to make a new start with you. Don't ever settle for less. Be with someone who desires to be with you no matter what

That's exactly the point, jellyroll.
Recently a good friend of mine went through a similar situation. She met this guy who seemed really interested, they spent almost everyday together for three months, had great weekend getaways, and suddenly out of the blue (at least for my friend, maybe she didn't read the signs) he said everything was going too fast, that he needed a couple of weeks to reconsider the situation. My friend granted his wish; she was devastated, she liked the guy and assumed that was the end of it. I remember telling her that I couldn't understand why so many guys do that. I can tell if I want a serious relationship with a guy in a lot less than three months!
After the break he called again, and they agreed that they would see each other a little less to see what happened. My husband told me exactly what you just said jellyroll. When a guy says he needs time, that everything is going too fast, he means, I like you enough to want to go on dates and cool weekends with you but I don't see you in my future. I haven't told my friend, because I think, deep down, she knows, but I worry about her.

Why do so many men do that? I must say, for good or for bad, my dates have always dumped me cold turkey, but it is the fourth time a close friend of mind has to go through something like this!
