You haven't mentioned who broke up with whom. If you broke up

with him, he may be trying to stay attached to you in any way that

he can. This is not necessarily bad, but you may want to tell him

that you need to cool off for a month or more before you can talk

"as friends." Believe me, it takes at least this long to be able to

reconfigure the relationship. Anyone who thinks they can "be

friends" a day after being "in love" was either never in love to

begin with, or else has not stopped. In other words, either a fool

or a liar. However, if it was he who broke up with you, then you

need to stay away from him. He's using you. Although the previous

answer did make some good points, it could just mean that although

he doesn't want to be involved with you romantically, he still

likes you enough to want to be friends. just because you're not in

love with someone doesn't mean you have to hate them. You can't

turn love on and off like a switch, so it's best to move on from

this relationship. I could never understand why people want to

remain friends with their ex's unless they had children together

and had no other alternative.
