Most Helpful Girl
Have you told him about your feelings towards him?
And instead of asking him if he wants you in his life, have you asked him if he has the same romantic feelings for you too?
Also, I'm sorry that you don't feel appreciated and wanted, but just remember that guys around that age need a lot of space, and the fact that he has to work, do schoolwork and rodeo, AND take care of his mom who has cancer can be really exhausting. He may be lacking much needed alone time for himself. I understand that you want to talk to him as much as you possibly can, but as you can tell, you can't exactly change him no matter how many times you ask him to. Just give him some space. He might just be busy with school, work, rodeo, or his mom, or he might just be catching up on sleep. He'll respond to you as soon as he finds the time. Just breathe and relax. I wish the best for you both!
