Stop chasing him and see if he's prepared to put in the effort.
That is pretty accurate from cherrie, except both of you Bethany and he equally
have to put in effort ... Not just him nor you.
The problem with texting and/or posting on these sites etc. etc. is there is no intonation, no body language to pick up on ... Hence people read a text or post with their own 'voice'
as it were, not that of the poster.
Another important point which is missed by so many people in life, not just on the internet ..... Why does his perceived reticence by you, have to be about you? The world is not all about you is it? Nor me, nor anyone else.
Maybe he is as busy at work, maybe his dog is ill, maybe he has to go to the clinic, maybe his wife is cutting up rough [Gallic shrug] ... Who knows as there are a billion possible reasons ... But only one is about you, if you see my point.
My advice to my own adult children before they were both in LTR would be "Meet the person, see what happens from there' ... Which is all I can say to you.
