He says he needs time to think......

Published on July 16, 2013 by dawn83

I have been dating this guy for about a month now. I knew on our first date that he had broken off an engagement 2 week prior. I didn't expect for things to go so well between us but they did we connected instantly always wanted to be around each and after 2 weeks of dating he took me on a weekend trip out of state to the beach.He tells me he really likes me and cares about me a lot. Recently his ex had been trying to contact him and he finally spoke with her. After speaking with her he called to tell me he needed to take a break and think because he does really care about me and likes me but he still feels he loves her. And now he is confused and doesn't know what to do so he needs time to think. What should I do? I put up a fight when he told me that because I do really care about him even though it has been such a short amount of time. He is a really great person and has all of the qualities I could ever ask for in a man. He even said that he knows we have something special and its different. But then he would also say "You cant help who you Love" talking about his ex. She is the one that did him wrong she was controlling and and was very hurtful to his mother and daughter whom he's loves and respects very much. And in knowing this if he does choose to get with her he would be putting a wedge between himself and his family. I hate having to sit and wait I don't feel like his ex deserves him she had her chance and screwed it up. What do I do?

ANSWERS

I think you should give him the space to figure out what he wants to do. He had only been single for 2 weeks before you started dating, and, presumably, if he was engaged, he had been with his ex for significant amount of time. So, he's probably not even had enough time to process that breakup. Be supportive, but don't pressure him. If it's meant to be, it will work out!
