Is he trying to soften the blow or is he telling the truth?

A guy I've been dating for 3 months seemed to be withdrawing for about two weeks (such as me having to initiate contact first, and not making plans to meet me, and not following through), although he never stopped showing interest. I asked him what's wrong and to tell me if he doesn't want to see me anymore so I can move on. He said he didn't lose interest, it's that he has been having a few personal problems lately and has been distant even with his friends. He says he doesn't expect me to wait.
Is he just trying to soften the blow because he's not interested in me anymore or is he telling the truth?

What I don't understand is, why can't he just tell me he wants to take it slow because of this instead of cutting it all off? Maybe he's depressed? That's purely a guess since he said he's been withdrawing from his friends too. Is that a normal symptom of depression? He wasn't even trying to make plans to see me. Shouldn't he want to see me to enjoy himself if it's true that he always has fun with me as he says?
I know I have to move on either way, and that's what I'm doing. I just want to know if you think he was telling the truth or not.
