When a man tells you he just wants friendship or is not ready for a relationship, believe him.
Sadly, this can be code for ” I don’t want a relationship with YOU”. IMO, more often than not, a male/female friendship has one person wanting/hoping for more. Not always, but often. You did not say if you wish he wanted a relationship, but if you want a committed romance with him, that will not happen. I would just move on from anything but the most casual connection.
