Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this platform. From what you have written, I understand that you have strong affection towards him. The distress and frustration you are experiencing could be because you did not get the reciprocation you expected from him.
If you believe that he liked you a lot, then that affection does not vanish overnight just because you confessed your love. The most possible reason could be he is not ready for the commitment or may not be on the same page as you. And that is common in most relationships, especially in the beginning stages of commitment.
For all you know, he may be having an internal conflict about how to go forward in this relationship. But you have no control over his thoughts. The only thing that you can make changes is the way you react to this situation. I understand that this conflicting situation could be very distressing for you. Trying to get a conclusion or come to a decision about the relationship right away, may be one more reason that is distressing you.
Hence, I would suggest you to give him and yourself some time to reconsider each other's expectations from this relationship. See if you would like to have a chat session with us and let's see how can we provide support for the same.
