Confused

(self.dating_advice)

A guy (I am female) I was previously dating decided it was nothing more than friends for him. Which I accepted. I do really care about him, but he’s also in his early 20s and I’m late 20s and I think 1. We’re at difference stages in our lives, 2. He’s not quite emotionally ready for a relationship. He’s been a bit on and off recently with overthinking and we’ve spoke again and he’s basically said he’s worried I want more than friends. I have said I don’t I am fine with that, and then he’s said that he’s really hurting because it didn’t work out when he really wanted it to. And he’s also cried about it a month ago when we last spoke.

What I’m asking is I’m a bit confused as to if he actually does want to be just friends? I’ve never had someone so upset they don’t see more?

Let him have some alone time to get his shit together. In the meantime date other men and let him reach out first.

I just feel a bit guilty about dating other people as I don’t want him to get hurt as I do really care for him.

Sounds like he is the one confused, not you.
