Yes, but it's still positive and nice and far better than nothing...so return the curtesy and be accepting and understanding about his decision. The fact that he's saying it that way does mean that he still cares about you, though.
Yes... sorry (there is no easy way to say that). Hey look on the bright side you're not in my boat I had something similar happen to me a couple months back... with my best friend. I know how you feel and if you need anyone to talk to I'm here ready to listen... it helps to relate and release sometimes.
Unfortunately, yes... thats okay though. You were probably way to good for him anyways! :D but dont ever say that you you regret him, or wish that you had never met him... 'cause weather you like it or not, once upon a time, he was probably exactly what you were looking for. the truth hurts, but i promise you, you'll find someone so much better, so just keep looking. :D
