Broken....just broken
I met a man last year who was overseas. He arrived in SA & things were fine between us. He then told me that he doesn't love me & we should go our separate ways. I did, I pulled away from him completely but he keeps coming back into my life. Now he's gone away again, and now I'm everything to him again! He tells me how much I mean to him & how much he loves me.

Why does he keep coming back? I feel I can't go out with other people because I feel that I'm betraying him if I do. I'm confused. He's just like a closed book - doesn't talk about what he's feeling?

Am I just his sexual, convenient object?

Broken Angel --- it does sound as if he's either an indecisive and dithering twit, or just using you, or an indecisive and dithering twit who is just using you. Probabl the latter. Dump him, and tell him clearly that you're not available like a library book, sitting on the shelf waiting till he feels like a quick read.
