I am dating a guy who is an athlete. No doubt he reeeally likes me. He explained to me that sometimes he go MIA when he is focused. He deleted his Facebook and he doesn't follow me on instagram (but I follow him) but when I initiate a text he responds. I even posted a comment on his instagram pic and he responded so I know he is not trying to avoid me. We had a deep conversation about his training and why he get distant so I understand. What I am wondering is why would guys delete their Facebook or not follow a girl they like on instagram? Is it a distraction? I am thinking he doesn't want to think about what I am doing and afraid of possibly losing me because we Haven't made it official yet. Also, is it possible to compromise the time you want to spend with a partner if you are really focused on a goal or work? Maybe dinner once a month or something?

Well, for athletes, it's a whole different dating process! Trust me! It take A LOT to be an athlete; not only do you have to do extensive training to stay a good player, but you need to work out to gain that strength, and if you're competing in serious games, it is absolutely crucial that you have your mind right! Where do you think the term 'keep your head in the game came from'? :)
I don't blame him for going MIA; not only are FB and instagram time consuming, but they can have a major impact on your emotions and self-esteem depending on what's being posted. I wouldn't look too much into it and you really shouldn't place so much value on FB/instagram activity. Good morning/Goodnight texts mean more than liking pics or statuses on FB *shows you were the last person on his mind before he went to sleep :) * Calling you or giving you pep talk texts for a big day means more than stalking your FB to see what’s going on in your life. Next, you should first talk with him about what potential future you guys have together then decide how you want to pursue this dating process…Do you just want one date per month? Do you want night time and morning Skypes? Do you want to be all cutesy and go watch him practice or go to his games to cheer him on? What type of connection is this? How strong is it? What is it’s potential? Then go from there
