On a break but he still wants to help me

My boyfriend of a few months and me are on a break. He initiated the break and it has made me sad but I'm willing to work on our relationship. My car has had issues since he has known me. All of the places I have gone, I have been told there is nothing wrong but something is clearly wrong with the car as the sunroof seems possessed, a lot of the buttons don't seem to work and my symbols keep popping up.

Before we took a break, my boyfriend offered to take it to his mechanic who is a good friend of the family. Now that we are on a break, he still wants to help me out with that. Problem is...I see him around town and he waves but we don't really have much interaction. It seems like he can't get ahold of his mechanic friend which makes me feel like he really doesn't want to help me. I was thinking of calling him in a few days to let him know that although I appreciate the thought, that he doesn't have to go through the notions.

Good idea?

I also think you should take care of it yourself. If he intended to help you, he would have done so by now. I would also store this away in your brain as a red flag that he would bail on you. Good luck.

Hi Op. I'm sorry to say it, but he doesn't want or intend to help you, and I doubt that he has any intention to date you seriously. Op, I'm sure you won't want to hear this, but I would suspect that this break was prompted by his not wanting to fulfill his offer. And even if not, then his actions declare his intentions....he's not there for you. Believe his actions. If you get your car running, and he suddenly shows up, looking to renew the relationship, you will know that he's there to use you as a mode of transportation. And that's really it. Unfortunately there are plenty of people out there who look at other people as one convenience or another, and when that convenience is gone, so is the relationship. Don't count on him, count on yourself. Personally, I've found that finding a good, honest mechanic is more difficult that finding a decent boyfriend, and I'd be more inclined, now in my middle age, to hold onto a good mechanic if I found one. ;) If I were you, I'd start looking around for a mechanic, and I'd start considering this break, as a break up. Just my 2 cents. good luck!
