We've been dating for a couple of months. He's pretty cool, I;ve met all his friends, he's met mine, we've integrated our friend groups so that everyone actually likes each other. We usually hang out once during the week and then on the weekends but lately I feel like I'm always initiating contact. He is shy and he's told me before that he really likes me but has a history of getting his heart broken. he said he will hang out with me any time I want to hang out with him, but this means I always have to call. Is this normal? I like boys to call me, chase me. He always answers right away when I call and we always make plans and have a great time together, but there have been times when I said I'd call and then I forgot and he got really hurt, so I'm thinking there's a fear of rejection going on with him and calling me? Sorry for the long confusion, basically.why does he always want me to be the one to call, when it seems like he wants to hang out just as much as I do? Maybe I'm missing something.

He's definitly shy, and if he has a history of heartbreak then he's only that much more paranoid. I have a similar problem, it's not so much insecurity it's just that after it happens enough times (or doesn't have enough chances to happen) at least a few guys get worried that they're never going to meet the right girl and get increasingly nervous about offending them.
He wants you to make first contact, he probably won't do it himself because he's afraid of annoying you or driving you away.1
