I met a guy in January and we hung out for a couple months, but in the past month or so, we've grown apart. After trying, and not being able to find time to spend together due to his busy schedule, I stopped texting him and just let it be. Last week he texted me to tell me he was going to be in my neighborhood a lot more for work (we don't live close to each other). We made tentative plans for dinner twice but both times he was unable to make it due to working late. Both times he let me know, apologized and asked if we could "try for next week."
Can he really be that busy, or is he just not that interested in me anymore? And if he's just not that interested, why is he bothering to apologize and why is he trying to keep the door open for next time?
Right now I don't really have a lot invested in him, but if we start hanging out again, I know I'm going to start liking him again. I can work with busy, but I don't want to start falling for a guy that's not really interested in me.

As much as I'd like to say that everybody has play time and is available for date at some point, people your age generally are super busy and I'm only 21 and have had the same experience. I was trying to go out with this chick who showed interest in me and not only did school take the energy out of me I developed sleep apnea and combined with her schedule and me sleeping all the time it couldn't happen. So really I'm surprised you're still interested, and I'd say he is really busy, but next time you go on a date, go out of your way to be happy to see him and enjoy the hell out of your date, and he'll see that and you'll get closer fast.1
