Maybe it is in my head, but he is taking a good bit longer to reply to my messages and I have definitely noticed. It seems like we got really close and he's pulling back a bit.
For example, tonight was really the first night that I had to reschedule a date (I got stuck on a long errand hours away and realized hours in advance that I couldn't make it back into town in time for us to hang out, so I text him) and he said something about understanding I had my hands full and not wanting to add to the stress? I thought that might have some hidden connotations, like he felt like I was neglecting him or that he was stressful to me.
Anyway, he seemed fine and understanding, despite that sentence that caught my eye. He proposed that since we weren't going out until tomorrow night, that we talk on the phone tonight. I text him back within 20 minutes and told him I appreciated him understanding, tomorrow would be much better, and that I would love to talk on the phone, however it would probably be around 9 before I got home, as I was detouring and stopping by my parents (my grandfather isn't doing well and I wanted to see them for a bit).
He didn't answer me until 5 hours later, an hour before we were supposed to talk. I didn't have service on my way home, so as soon as I got home (20 minutes after 9:00), I text him and told him I was driving like a granny through the storm, which is why I was 20 minutes late, and asked if he was still up for talking on the phone.
He waited about 20 minutes to text me back and said he had a headache and was about to lay down, and asked "if it would be okay if we just talked if we see each other tomorrow?"
That last part stuck out to me... if we see each other? Is he being this way because I had to postpone our date? I just find it funny that he mentions talking on the phone, but then conveniently has a headache?

He wanted to talk when he wants to. I think maybe he feels your calling all the shots and he is letting you know he will not always do something that you say. Yes it's very childish and immature. He seems to be mirroring your actions. You have a reason not to see him and hang out he has a reason for not talking on the phone when you got home. But texts you late to talk on the phone because it's convenient for him. I hope he doesn't keep acting weird on you and treat you like this. That isn't fair or right.0
