I still have feelings for him but I don't love him anymore. I spent the last 8 months re-discovering "single me" and I'm finally OK with that.
I do see myself with him in the long run, just not now. How do I explain all this to him without hurting him further?
If you don't take him now you'll probably never see him again, so keep that in mind when making your decision.
If you do want to reject him, there's no way to do it without hurting him further. Just keep your head up and be honest.
Have you been sleeping around since you broke up
If yes just tell him and he will understand. If hes still willing then he will wait.
If you reject him now but say you want to date him later than hes going to consider you a whore and let you go.
I don't necessarily think he'd consider me a whore, but I would hate to make him feel like a second option in case nothing else works out. Plus, I am aware I would be blocking his chances from meeting someone else if I tell him I want to date him later.
Be honest with yourself. Do you truly see yourself with him in the future? How could you not love someone yet still see a long term future with him? Are you using him as a back up plan?
