So here's the deal, a friend set me up with a friend of hers in March. All she told me was that he broke up with his gf a little while ago and she thought we would hit it off. Well we did . It was just casual dating. He's very mature (a change for me!) and we took things very slowly. Then I got a text from him saying he's not ready for a new relationship so quickly and that he gets nervous and worries too much. I'm kinda confused about that part. He wants to keep a distance and not rush anything. So I'm giving him space. Then, after all of this, I found out from my friend that she thinks he broke up with his ex of 2 years in February when we met in March. No wonder he's not ready!
My question is: Is he pretty much letting me down easy or does he need time to think about things?
I appreciate everyone's advice!
