Am I being put on the back burner?
OK. I've been seeing this guy about a month. We haven't gone one day without texting or chatting or seeing each other. I was actually scared by how much he was in touch at first, but figured I'd rather someone be in touch than be aloof.
He slept over once and didn't try to touch me because he knew I wanted to take things slow. That was sweet. Well it seems like the last week it's been one thing after another coming up, and he's kinda flipped the switch in terms of communication. He still gets in touch here and there but not as much.
He dropped plans when he was sick to take me out to lunch last week before I took a trip and then he went to travel and see his family and child. It seemed he kept adding a day to the trip.
Anyway, he gets home and says he thinks he got sick on the plane. I try to ask him when he wants to hang out and it takes him an hour to respond. He says "sorry I was interviewing people brb" and then I never hear from him, not even text.
Because I can't help myself I tell him that I'm not trying to be suffocating but that my schedule is really busy coming up and I want to make time to see him. He said it was fine but work is ruling his life and now he's sick and feels like he's failing at everything...that he's "definitely still interested" I ensured him that I just like him and think we need some face time in order to really get to know each other. He writes back FOUR HOURS later saying that he agrees but that he thinks he's really sick.
So today, I'm really upset because I haven't heard from him AT ALL. I know I shouldn't have but I finally sent him a silly text. About 40 minutes later I get a text where he says he is on antibiotics and painkillers for strep throat and that he had to go to urgent care.
If he's really sick, I feel bad for getting all in a tizzy, but honestly, he went from texting/chatting CONSTANTLY to barely saying anything at all. Is it possible I'm being put on the back burner, or that he's trying to slowly creep away?
It seems like a lot of work to tell me he's "definitely still interested" or to make up such elaborate stories...but seriously? Why flip the switch?
I think I'm going to wait for him to call some shots, and in the meantime, continue with my life.
What do you think?
