So, we met 2 years ago and 6 months of knowing each other, we've admitted to liking each other. And after that, he suddenly rejects me saying it's not my fault but his. He never explained clearly why. We then stopped talking for a little bit after trying for a while to talk to each other despite me being rejected. During the time we weren't talking, we just greeted each other on birthdays. And finally, 4 months ago, we were able to get along again. Now I didn't expect my feelings for him to return since the rejection took quite a huge blow to me because I thought we were going to be together. But instead of looking for a relationship, I settled for platonic. But now, he's the one telling me he loves me but also says "I love you platonically, for now." Does that mean he actually has an intention of probably pursuing a relationship with me and just isn't prepared for a relationship? He did say he wasn't ready for anything like that and wanted to improve on himself, which now I realize I also need. We both aren't ready but to be told this by someone who rejected me is quite... confusing to say the least. He actually didn't properly reject me, he just said something among the lines of "I'm not ready" and admittedly told me he was having a hard time moving on from his feelings for me. Only recently did I tell him I have feelings for him but don't want anything to gain from it and also said I want to see where it goes instead of openly going into a relationship with him. He agreed and said he wanted to see about it as well. Does he want a future with me as a couple of perhaps he's just looking for something platonic? I always assumed the latter but we also joke around about marriage and how we don't mind getting married to each other.
