Staying Friends With Someone You Dated

Group Think: Should We Stay Friends If I Still Like Him?

This question comes from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

So this guy and I have dated for about 2 months and he basically says he wants to be friends only. We are both 23, I graduated and am working full time but he's still in school as a double major in the sciences. He says he is attracted to me and likes me but doesn't want to be in a relationship with me. He says that we should be friends because he thinks I'm a great girl and once in a while we can grab coffee or lunch to catch up.

I like him a lot and really saw that he would make a great boyfriend but he put me in the friend zone. He says that he thinks that he wouldn't be a good boyfriend to me because he doesn't have the time to do things with me. When we dated we only saw each other like 1 or 2x a week and sometimes he would cancel or be late because of school.

I know whatever I say or do won't change his mind so I have no hope for this. But should I continue to be friends with him even though I have feelings for him? I don't mind catching up with him once in a blue moon. Or should I just cut it off completely with him? Part of me feels like if he really did like me he would make time for me. What do you guys think?
