This guy I'm dating has an extremely stressful job and has been traveling a lot recently from this country to another almost non-stop for about more than two weeks now. I understand he is kinda preoccupied with work so I would text him like twice a week to let him know I'm thinking about him. I never bugged him when he took hours to reply. Even when he didn't reply, I just let it go, just gave him a couple days then I would text him again not mentioning about the text getting no reply that day. But he has been quite distant recently and ignored my texts for a few times already and never said sorry like he used to, so I am still worried if I came across as clingy/needy or he is just so preoccupied? Advice please, thanks.

It could be that he is losing interest in you. But it could also be something else.
It depends on how stressful the job is. Does he feel that he has to manage both his job, which doesn't give him much time with you, and his relationship at the same time? It could be that he is juggling this in his mind, and he doesn't know what to do. Texting twice a week is okay, but I don't know how much is too much. He could also be preoccupied, but don't take his not answering your texts as a sign that he doesn't care about you. His distance could mean that something is bothering him.0
