You said the right thing about playing it by ear. Now you need the resolve and mindset to do just that. He's the one that needs to make up his mind on the future since you already have. It's always the case in every relationship that one partner needs to catch up with where the other is at – no two people travel the same speed.
Take your own advice and keep to it.
