Recently though he has started pushing me away. We haven't seen each other in two weeks and he has made no future plans with me so I have no idea when we will see each other again. He barely texts and when he does, it's often just a quick hello or goodnight. When I ask about getting together he tells me he's busy but he is at least apologetic.
His ex wife got engaged last weekend and I believe that has something to do with his behavior. He doesn't care about her getting married in the sense that he's jealous or anything but I know he's worried about a new father figure for his kids. He also told me they are having issues with his 16 year old son.
I totally understand the pressure he must feel right now but how do I get him to let me in? I want to provide emotional support but it's hard for me to do if he won't share. I miss him and just want him to engage with me. :(. But I decided to not push him as I don't want to drive him away.
Any suggestions on what I can do to get him to come back around? I just want my sweet guy back. :(

hey, I know it's no fun to feel like you're being pushed away but it's a good sign that he's at least apologetic.
Perhaps if you went up to him and told him how you felt and forcefully suggested that he pick a day or two next month where you two could go on a little roadtrip.
My stepdad lives on a farm and unfortunately sometimes my mom has to take him away from the stress for a while to keep the spark alive.
also, coming from a split family, he has nothing to worry about with a new stepdad coming into the picture. I know it can be pretty intimidating but he just has to keep being the best father he can be.
I wish you two the best of luck and I know you'll figure it out!
