I've read that when a man initiates the relationship talk, it means he cares and is interested about the relationship and where it is going. Is this true? Guys wouldn't really even consider having a heart to heart with the woman they are casually seeing, right?
Since then, things have been on his terms, and he's doing a pretty damn good job at holding back. He doesn't text sappy, relationship type things like, "I miss you"; "when can I see you?" "Goddamn, you're beautiful"; "I can't wait to see you". Whatever sappy, fluffy thing most women like to hear, I get zilch. In the beginning, he was all cutesy. But this may simply be because that's not the type of person that he is, and in the beginning, he was trying to win me over. And as far as seeing each other, we've been farely consistent about seeing each other once a week. I don't need all the fluffy stuff to be happy, I just want to feel like he's interested and that I am something to him.
Every time I say something cutesy in a text, I get nothing. But in person, if I say I missed him, he'll respond by saying he missed me too. He could also just feel forced to say it in person because he's "on the spot".
Should I be worried? Is this a mechanism he's using to slow things down?
