Yes, it absolutely can be. A girl that I once dated and really liked contacted me awhile ago wanting to "catch up." I really want to, but I don't have the time right now. Unless someone is married or has children, improving their life and bettering their position in life to provide better for themselves and their family and whoever they wind up marrying in the future should always be their number one priority. If another fits into that, great. If not, then hopefully there will be another day.
If you ever want to have a shot with this guy, try and not take this so personal and act so insecure. Making this harder on him and demanding more attention when he might not have any to give will only decrease your chances of ever having a shot with him.

You are Right Here, dear, he is More than a 'Coward,' he Is... A Lame duck Excuse of a Guy with no Try.
He may be this Busy Bee to an Extent but Believe me, He is Putting Others And Other Priorities as Well on his Long list, Making you the Low gal on The "He didn't know when He would have a chance" Totem Poop Pole, I see right through him like a Clear Blue Pool, I am No fool.
Good Thinking. Let his Cold Heartless Dick 'Post them,' then You... Forget Him.
He may come around one day with his tail between his legs. And if this happens, should you take him back, it will end up a Full Circle problem Pattern that will Always go Dead in the Water.
Good luck. xx
