You have a very strange concept of time.
A week ago you had this similar problem, and said you'd been dating about a month. So, all this stuff has happened within about 5 weeks, and all this extra stuff in this post has all occured in the last week?
You make a lot of drama.
You talk as if you two have known each other for a long time, like well more than a year or 2.
You say things like "lately" when you have literally known him a matter of days.
This guys got a dad with cancer, and that trumps anything, or anyone that has been going on for 5 weeks.
To be honest, I cannot believe this is a 29 year old woman going on about this, because you sound like a 15 year old high school girl.
I also don't really believe this 35 year old man, unless he is extremely immature, is saying these things to you. An adult with a father with cancer and work issues etc would have told you straight off to back off with your neediness because guess what, my dad is sick and no, I'm not going to carve out special little times for you when he needs me.
