What am I doing wrong? :/ Is he losing interest because he thinks he got me already? He's talking to others? sighs.
Most Helpful Guy
Men tend to be a lot more career focused than women (in general, because they are pressured to be so from society), so I would give him the benefit of the doubt. He told you that he was working on something that needs to be fixed, right? Is he a business owner? Most people don't actually realize that a business owner, especially for a small business, has a ton of work to do every day, and that if employees have anything come up, eventually he will need to deal with that situation. I mean, yeah it sucks, but once he gets a good enough staff he will be able to relax some, which is business owner for an eight hour day instead of a twelve hour day.
Or if he isn't, his boss could have been really upset about something and took it out on him.
I mean, obviously I don't know that guy personally, so you should talk to him about it, but I just don't want you to think the worst automatically.
Also, no one likes to be accused, so watch how it's worded. Make yourself or the SITUATION the subject of the question, not him, i. e., "Are you losing interest?" vs. "Is everything OK? I've enjoyed this conversation so far" or "I hope all is well. Work can be such a drag". I wouldn't recommend those exact phrases though, but you get the idea; people get defensive around the word "you".
