So I've been dating this guy for a couple of months and at first we got along REALLY well and seemed to have a lot in common. We texted each other almost everyday and saw each other multiple times a week.
In mid October his 3 year old son who he only gets to see a few times a year came to visit him and his family. Ever since then he has been very distant from me. Rarely initiates text messages, and a lot of times does not respond to mine.
I've asked him more than once if he was no longer interested to please tell me so I could have closure and he has always responded saying something like "I've just been trying to spend as much time with my son as possible."
He has also seemed to be VERY stressed out because of his job and has been in a very bad mood after work when I've tried to text him. He will not and never has really talked to me when in a bad mood, but these days his distance is REALLY starting to bother me.
I have not seen him since the end of November and before that I didn't see him for a month either. I haven't heard from him in weeks and on Christmas I texted him a sweet Merry Christmas message and he didn't even respond to that.
I'm pretty sure his son is still visiting him and I'm sure he's most likely still coming home in a bad mood from work due to the fact he is training the new employee.
These days I've just been really sad by his distance and I really want our relationship to go back to how it was before, but I just feel so confused as to what he is feeling towards me. He's told me before that he is only interested in a serious monogamous relationship and that he indeed saw me as material for that...
Should I continue to give him space? Or should I try reaching out to him letting him know that I am not satisfied with how things are going?
Any advice would be great...

I have girls do this sort of thing to me all the time, and it is really frustrating... I understand that he has his son now, and work is tough around the holidays for most jobs. But he does need to hold up his end. Maybe wait a few weeks to see if things calm down for him. If not move on.1
