What is the point of he chose her over me but wants to be friends?
If a guy decides to break up with you because of someone else yet still begs you to be his friend, then probably he doesn’t want to cut off the connection with you. Being your friend allows him to continuously value and take care of you.
This implies you still have a special spot in his heart.
Does it mean he still loves you?
Well, in case he has a new girlfriend but wants you two to become friends, it says he enjoys spending time with you as you have the energy he prefers. He likes you but not in a romantic way like before.
You shouldn’t take everything to heart – if his love for you is still the same, then he won’t break up. Maybe you two are better as friends. Tell yourself that you truly matter to him if he insists on having you in his life.
