I meet this guy this guy his 42 , and I am 29. we talked by may and June a little , his dad fell ill and he went to Minnesota. I checked on hm, but we lost connection, only two month later he came back and he wanted to connect and catch up where I left. we meet, I slept at his place, I left my stuff , took his stuff. last week he was slow on texting , even before that was his habit. So I decided to tell him I won’t bother you , he said his been slow to reply to my text and calls he had a tough week , he said that he think we should take a step back and slow down cause he thinks i need a-lot of attention - I am confused should I reply or just let it be and move on?
