How do you get over a breakup if you both still love each other but he needs time to figure things out on his own?

Usually when a guy tells you that he needs time to figure things out that usaully means that they have some else but he just do'nt want to hurt your feelings it can be the same as a young lady telling a guy the same thing in fact they really done moved on ! Time heals all things. Which, unfortunately, is both good and bad. Life is very short, and no one really knows when his/hers will be over. My advice to you is not to dwell on this emotion you feel. Things will work out the way they are supposed to. Just enjoy the here and the now. Also know that when one door closes, another is opened. why does he need time to think things through? Is he wanting space between you both?
