These issues, (including a flare up of depression) meant he would become quite inconsistent with contacting me and making plans. I asked him to change this or we were done. He said he didn't want me to feel neglected and finally offered to be 'friends'.
IMHO....this guy had more than one fish on the line and substituted the one already in the pan for the other which he then put back on the hook to leave dangling in case he didn't like the flavor of his substitute.....lol.
Now you are giving him a 2nd chance while he is probably still trolling for the next bigger and better fish!
