Broke Up With Co-Worker

"He Dumped Me, and We Work Together"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our community. Add your advice in the comments!

He just broke up with me. He said it's because it isn't the right time for him in life. This is after months of dating. Problem is that I work at the same company he does. He said he thinks "I'm beautiful in all respects and loves talking to me, my company and would love for us to be friends."

I lied and said I would, but I was just saying it because I don't want it to be awkward should I see him. Do you think he is serious?

Just like you said you would to remain friends to avoid potentially awkward situations, he made those comments for the same reason. By complimenting you and telling you he enjoys your company, he is trying to avoid any bad blood between you too. His words may very well be true, but most likely there is an underlying reason why he's saying them, and that is to avoid tension. From my experience, men go to great lengths to avoid difficult situations. He could have outright ignored you at work, making you feel even worse. At least he had the maturity to try and make peace.
