How long can a man be in his “cave” and withdrawn? My boyfriend and I have been together just over a year. We do not live together. He has been going through a lot lately with his job, health and stress in general and he has been very withdrawn. I haven’t heard from him in a week. He says he is not trying to hurt me or push me away, but he is under a lot of stress. I haven’t texted him hoping he would miss me and contact me, but he hasn’t yet. Should I continue to leave him alone or should I text him? I am so confused on what to do. Even though he is under stress, why doesn’t he miss me and want to talk to me. I am very sad right now.

I would say if you haven't heard from him in a week... and you normally (before this) talk quite frequently, then give it a couple more days. Then just send a very nice quick text - like hope you are having a good day.. miss you... and that's it. If he needs space to sort things out - you need to give him that. He will totally appreciate that. Get busy - go out with friends, family, so that when you do talk to each other - it's nice and relaxing. Also, I wouldn't be like 'why didn't you call... etc'.. If it becomes a pattern, then that's another issue.0
