Can someone really be "too busy" to call or text?

I met this guy online a few months back. We talked on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve until the clock struck twelve, and he was pretty vocal about how much he liked me. He used to want to talk everyday, but I've noticed that the number of times he gets in touch with me during the week had dwindled. He forgot about me wanting to talk on Valentine's Day, and he didn't talk to me for an entire week after that. When he messaged me, I decided to give him another chance, and things started to improve a little. Our conversations had gone a little deeper, and he'd call about twice every week. The week before he went on a holiday overseas, he called me almost everyday, even during the week following his vacation. His calls began to dwindle again after that. He'd call me his girl, and he seemed to be ok about me telling him to tell other girls that he's taken. The last time he initiated contact with me was over a week ago. I texted him twice and messaged him online, but he didn't reply to those. It was only over the past weekend that he did. He said that he missed me too and that he was just busy. Can someone really be that busy for "his girl"? What do you think should I do?

  • It sounds like you two have never actually met?

    If that's the case, you may just be his "backup girl". The one he turns to when there's no one physically around for him to spend time with.
