Our expert says:
It appears to me that you do have true feelings for him which makes you very vulnerable at this stage. I would advise against the friends-with-benefits idea as it may only end up with you getting hurt.
Clearly he is hurting over his brother and he and his family need to find a way to deal with it.
True love is about being with each other through good times and the bad, but it seems that he is unwilling to share the hard times with you.
If you're afraid he might turn to someone else for sex, then you are better off without him and u should rather save you love for someone who appreciates it and can reciprocate it. Don't settle for a relationship which is sustained only by sex and sexy photos - you deserve more validation than that.
If he really cares for you, he will come back . Give him the space he needs but don't sell yourself short.
