My boyfriend has less respect for me because I had sex too soon

Just what it says in the title. I've been seeing this guy for 6 months. He turned to me and said pretty randomly one morning after he stayed the night and we had been cuddling "Just for the next guy, don't have sex as quickly as you did, it will be better for you in getting what you want".

For context we had worked together for months before dating, went on 4 dates, then he booked a night away in a hotel and on that night we had sex for the first time. He always brings up that his ex made him wait 4 months. I really like this guy and have brought up being boyfriend/girlfriend to which he says he is not ready. But he has also said that he much prefers being in a relationship to being single. And he had said "I love you"

I think I'm slowly coming to terms with the fact that this guy does not like me that much and does not respect me. Please give me the courage to dump this guy
