Why would my boyfriend break up with me but want to be best friends?
So that he can get out of it smoothly with you or not to hurt you more than he already has.
maybe he is just not ready for a relationship
Maybe because he doesn't want you out of his life
Mabye liked u more as a friend
because he really likes you but is not in love with you
He realized he doesn't want the romantic relationship, but still wants the friendship.
Maybe he is in need of a friend and doesent want to loose u and u need to ask him why did he brake up with u and why does he wanna be friends
Maybe he only likes you as a friend.
He probably likes you more as a friend, and he doesn't want to remove you from his life completely. If he breaks up with you, you're no longer in a relationship, but it's your decision if you want to stay friends.
because he might like someone else no offense so he just wants to be cool with you
It means he still likes/loves you. But isn't ready for a relationship, doesn't want your relationship to be anything big or it can mean a lot of things... But he still cares about you
His love interests are elsewhere and not man enough to "man up"
He probably just liked you better as a friend.
Someone is always hurt when friends take their relationship to the next level and find romance wasn't the best choice. It's hard to go back. Some people can handle the change; most cannot.
