So my boyfriend of 2.5 years recently broke up with me. He asked me if we could still be friends since we were already so close..and I said yes. We're talking like normal, like we always did when we were in a relationship, except we aren't. We still use our pet names and cute words but the only difference is we don't say I love you. I ask him if he wants to get back together and he says "at the moment no". He says he's moving on and he doesn't have as many feelings for me. He says i love you as a friend and we call each other super friends, more than best friends but not lovers.I don't get what he wants, and what I should do? Does this give me a chance to get back with him sometime in the future?

    I am someone who always wants to stay friends after a relationship ends also. My advice would be to set an amount of time where you guys have no contact because it's impossible to just go from relationship to friendship immediately. Especially if you're feeling like you want to be with him, and he's saying no. That's got to hurt :( But I bet that some time away will help you realize that you are better off not being with someone who isn't all in like you are. Also sometimes taking that time will make you able to talk to your ex about stuff that maybe is too harsh to right now.
