My boyfriend and I dated for 8 months. In the beginning I was his everything. He would call me while he was at work on every break and he wanted to see me every second of the day. After a little while I started to realize that he had issues with opening up to other people. He knew everything about me, but he was like a stranger to me because he wouldn't open up. He would get jealous because he felt as if my relationship with my best friend was stronger. I didn't understand why he would get mad about that because 1.) I had known my best friend longer and 2.) My best friend and I know EVERYTHING about each other so of course we're going to be closer. After about 5 months he became distant. From month 5-8 the relationship was a struggle. I felt the emotional distance, but I was the only one trying to fix things. I got tired of having a lop-sided relationship so I broke up with him. After that... we said we would be "friends." He never called... he never texted to check-up on me... I felt as if he just all of a sudden stopped liking me. Everytime I talked to him about it he would always tell me he was busy or he forgot. [B][I]Why do men say they want to be friends after a break-up, but end up completely dropping you? What type of relationship do they really want from you?[/I][/B]

He just said this to attempt to be nice and sidestep the breakup IMO. 99.9 % of couples cannot be friends after a breakup. The only time I seen it happen succussfully is when BOTH parties have not invested much or are not attracted to eachother.

Men don't open up IMO because women are turned off by male emotion, may cause you to lose attraction, didn't want to get too attached. He may of wanted to be mysterious since many women are attracted to this rather then an open book, emotional sissy boy.

Let me guess your best friend is a dude? If so I can't blame him if that bothered him it would bother many men. Would you like it if a future SO had a best female friend that he confided in first, spent large amounts of time with, discussed your relationship ect.. ? IMO a SO should be your best friend!

Your an ex who left him why should he care what your doing, how your doing or how you feel? He probably stopped liking you well before this, I would say when he became distant. He doesn't want anything from you his actions have made that clear what don't you see?:dizzy:
