I dated this guy for awhile, and we were really happy and seemed to get along well. Then we had a mutual break up for our own reasons. After which things were not always easy for us. We have had our ups and downs and lately were getting along well. Now, he is telling me that he is trying to be a stronger person and learn to trust people more, and that in order for that to continue to happen he wants to hang around people who are stronger. Making me feel like crap. I know he is going through stuff, and so am I. I just thought friends were supposed to stand by each other regardless. Not turn away when things get tough. Then he keeps telling me that he does not want me to stop talking to him and or leave and ignore him. I am kind of confused by this. Any advice??
