You have to accept the answer you get and go from there. Before you do anything you have to accept the decision that he has made. This dictates everything that follows. You may be love but you have to accept his decision. It sounds like he can go either way. You have to find out how much he likes being alone before you let yourself go to the solutions to this problem. You need to talk to him and see if maybe this break is temporary. When you have that piece of information you can then let your mind think of possible solutions that fit both of you. I hope that he is receptive but accept whatever his decision is. He has to want to try again. I wouldn't give up if immediately if he isn't receptive. But you can't allow yourself compromises for being together either. If he says it is over, then you have to pursue that plan to forget him.
