He asked me out almost 3 months ago and things have been pretty quiet. In the beginning, we saw each other 1-2 times a week, which was fine with me as we we're busy with school, work etc. But then once our term ended and summer started, i heard from him even less (if that's possible). He isn't the texting type, and will reply when i text him but never initates much. He works full time in construction so he's always tired, and I work nights on the weekends. We have opposite schedules. Even when we were talking 5-6 months prior, he was weird with his communication and I was always confused by it since it was obvious he liked me in person, but never talked to me outside from when we saw each other then, also once a week. It was always me texting him and he would get brave once in a blue moon and suggest to hang out or text me after long gaps of silences.
Now that we've been going out, I've brought it up that i would like to hear/see from him more and he just apologized and said he's bad at "it". We're each other's first relationship (he's 18, i'm 19), and essentially he was clueless as to how upset i was because i was going to end it with him when he asked me to come to his house for the first time and i met his sister. He introduces me as his girfriend to his friends, so i just find it weird that he's so quiet and can go a while without seeing me.
Is this normal? I like him, but if say we get past the 4 month mark and it' still like this... then i dont see a bright future.

Alright, mija. What you have hear is a shy man. He sounds like he really does like you, but you cante change someone. Learn to appreciate and embrace him for who he is. Isn't that why y'all got together? I do think that it is important to establish open communication as soon as possible in a relationship because that will get you two comfortable. I have an uncle who does construction, but he is always full of energy. I don't know how he does it. If you like him the way you say you do then keep opening up to him. He will reciprocate soon enough.0
