Can You Go Back To Being "Just Friends"?
Be yourself, be kind and go on with your life, life is way to short to put up with pettiness and ugly people. Let's not talk about dating together. The purpose of a date is to find out if you're compatible for and interested in a romantic relationship. Doesn't sound like he is much of a friend. You seem like a cool person also, so I think that once the bruises heal, this friendship will be good for you both again.
