The only drawbacks - First, he's a bad texter. He pretty much only texts to set up plans. When I casually brought that up he said he's "easily distracted", but he now throws in the occasional "How's your day / hope you have a good day" texts, but I still might go a day or two without hearing from him (I try not to bug him either).
Second, one day he kinda blew me off for his buddies. Granted I had just seen him two nights before (on a Friday) but he said he wanted to see me again on Sunday so I had deliberately left my evening open only for him to then ask if I'd be mad if he went out with his friends instead. When I called him out on that, he apologized like 5 times and said he didn't mean to upset me.
The final drawback - he is taking on more responsibility at work and working a LOT. We're talking 13 hour plus days. He leaves the state to be with his family for Christmas in a few days. He told me he likely won't have time for dinner this week but is going to try to make time just to swing by and say hi before he leaves. Note that we're not exclusive yet. I don't feel we're close to having that talk anytime soon. But I really like this guy and some things seem more promising than other guys I've dated in the past. Does this seem like a guy who is as into me as I'm into him?
