Move on, he's not worth your time. You've got all the time in the world to find someone who's willing to do anything for you, that you love more than this guy, trust me.

Take me seriously.
I dare you.

Move on.
It seems like he's keeping you on a 'hook' so to speak. It's keeping someone around until something better comes along, and if it doesn't then he'll decide he wants you again.
I'd save yourself a lot of trouble and heartache and just stop talking to him.
You'll find someone else who really appreciates who you are and treats you the way you deserve to be treated. Keep hope [:

If he wants to contact you, then let him.

Did you consider that he might just be looking for a friendship?
Friends contact each other all the time, that doesn't mean that he still likes you. And, I seriously doubt that he's toying with your emotions. It doesn't even seem like this in the slightest.
Move on. If you need help doing so, don't talk to him anymore.

I agree with Shannon, I think he is looking for friendship. If he is still contacting you, then he does want to still have some association with you, but if he says he doesn't like you then its most likely just to be friends.

And here you are living, despite it all.

I think that he is keeping you on the line. What does that mean? That means that he knows you like him, or even love him - and he wants to keep you around to satisfy his own needs. Let me guess, he texts you every once in awhile when you guys haven't talked in a few days? He keeps coming back after you finally think its over? If you said yes to those, then he is just keeping you on the sidelines as an option. Don't make him your priority. I agree with some of the others by saying its you best bet to move on, and not talk to him anymore.

Why cant we just be friends? Why move on? Well this is because you obviously like him, and if you stay around someone that you like, and he has made it clear he does not like you back then why hurt yourself and punish yourself by staying around him? In a case similar to this one, 95% of the time the feelings wont go away - in some cases they may get worse.

Best wishes,

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
