Do I get move on when I really like this guy?
I was seeing a guy who is younger than I. He's almost 2 years younger than I am, but we're both considered pretty young: he's 18 and I just turned 20 (I would appreciate it if the age wasn't mentioned). Things were great: he would always call and check up on me; we had a lot of fun together; we both gave each other a great rush. However, after break he became really busy and even got sick, and would even flake on me but apologize incessantly. After about a month, he basically ended things when he found out his close friend passed away. I think we both come from pretty sheltered backgrounds, so this news must have been devastating for him and I can tell he's not mourning in a healthy way. In the beginning of our relationship he told me that his previous girlfriends would get be frustrated with him because he was unable to balance out his life between school, sports, dating, etc. The news of his friend did not help with that at all. He told me that he could not handle a relationship right now, but that he would like it if I called him and if we still remain friends. He also doesn't live very close to where I live and he will be moving far away for college. Most of my friends are telling me to drop him, but I can't seem to be able to. Should I reach out to him like he had asked or is he just saying that as a cordial way to break up? Is this over but I'm just too delirious to see it? Is it dumb if I wait for him?
