From all that he said, it became pretty obvious he was the partner who opted out of the relationship. According to him, he is such a person who is fixated on his “routines and consistencies” such that for anybody to come into the picture and change the status quo will mean putting him on a high alert and more reactionary.
Similarly, he is “too sensitive” to things such that it affects his relationship with the opposite sex. Ben made it known that he had these thoughts in his head questioning him if the relationship he was into with Lauren was real, or perhaps it will be another case of someone not really liking him but just playing along till she finds another person more deserving of her.
