You are the one committed to another.
You are the one who can't offer him more than a secondary deal.
You have someone to cuddle into every night, he doesn't.
You won't be alone when this ends. He will.
I'm sure his guard is up, respecting his role as a secondary figure in your life.
It doesn't mean he doesn't love you; I'm sure he loves you very much or he wouldn't continue down this path. But cut him some slack...he needs to protect his own heart, too.
