I've been dating this guy for 5 months now. Recently he decided he just wants to be friends, because he is not ready for a relationship right now. he says that I made him the happiest he had ever been, but it's all him and nothing about me? We still see each other and enjoy each others company, but I am confused and don't know what to do.

How old is he? I'm just wondering why he's not ready for a relationship? I think he really does enjoy your company otherwise he wouldn't be hanging out with you. This may sound silly but how about asking him why he doesn't think he is ready for a relationship? See I'm kind of thinking that you're still in the relationship, has it changed that much? Do you do different things than you used to? I'm wondering if it is jut the fact that it's being defined as a relationship, is that what's putting him off? In any event, it sounds like he's a good friend to you, you don't want to lose that, so keep that relationship up if you're not being hurt by it, seriously though it may be a good idea to delve into his relationship issues a little farther, perhaps if he shares his anxiety about it, you can be the one to ease his fears. All great relationships are built from friendship anyways, so you're definately on a great track! Best to you, Marie
