I'm in love with a currently emotionally unstable man. Do I leave him or stick around?
Long story short- I didn't know he had a girlfriend, but when I found out I told him that I couldn't see him anymore. He broke up with his girlfriend and we were just talking online for a month without hanging out because he said he needs time to himself and that he doesn't trust himself when he's with me. I told him that I can't just be his online psychiatrist because even friends hang out... so I told him that i know what i want but he obviously doesnt know what he wants so to figure things out and then talk to me afterwards. we went a week without talking and then he talked to me again and i asked him "did you figure things out?" I'm not one of those girls that plays around. Yesterday he was having a bad day and we talked. He told me that right now he is so emotionally erratic and that's why he knows that he needs time to himself. So what do i do? Do i continue being his online buddy until he figures things out or do I tell him to take his time and then come back?
