It means he wants to be alone to think life through.
maybe it means just that.
That he wants to see what is around. If he finds nothing better he will come back to you.
"What does it mean, when a guy says you're disgusting. im a guy and you are a guy
He has had enough of your relationship and wants to be alone to "play the field " a bit longer without committing to one person. Just get rid, it will end in tears
He's not sure about something, and clearly you're apart of his uncertainty, therefore he wants to remove himself from you and figure out where he needs to be. He's trying to be as gentle as possible you must be a nice person :), but he doesn't want to be with you. Well for now that is; but why keep someone as your priority (waiting around), when they've made you an option? Be easy on yourself, be easy on him (he's trying to make it as easy as possible for you), embrace single hood, move on, life continues. time heals all wounds. Hang in there trooper! :)
I would just take that statement at face value and not try to read into it too much. Guys are generally pretty direct
Maybe he did something and doesn't know how to tell you. He could just be trying to figure out if he wants to be with you. You should just dump him and get on with your life. No one is worth the wait.
Hard to say without actually knowing him. He obviously wants some time to himself to think things over, but I have no idea what. :(
he's just not that into you. His loss; you however can now continue forward.
Time to take a next step.... Start going out for date.. ;)
Right now, he doesn't want to be with you.
