Anyhow, I'd honestly never felt this way about a guy before and I had a feeling this one was 'different'. About a week ago, he seemed slightly distant, so I told him if he needed space, I'd back off and wait until he wanted to get in touch. I later got a text from him which said:
Hey, thanks... I just need to think. It's not you... It's just my work and the distance. Have a good night. Don't think about this to much, you have exams to ace!
Which I was sort of pissed off about, since he basically used the 'it's not you, it's me' line. So I replied with:
Thanks for replying, but haha let's face it -- with your love of Aussie beers, and my like of Wodehouse novels and Tim Ferriss we were doomed from the start. All the best with everything :)
I was just sort of ticked off by the fact that he thought I'd buy into him impacting my studies. But the (sad) fact of the matter is I can't stop thinking about him, and I'm willing to let go of my ego to text him. Which is a huge deal, because usually when and guy and I end things, I accept it to be for the best and move on.
Basically, I just want to know where I went wrong, why he couldn't do it over the phone as opposed to text, and if there's any chance that he actually cared about me. And if it's worthwhile texting a guy I only dated for two months.
Other details: I'm 23, and he's 27.
