I was dating a guy for the last two months of spring semester. We go to school in the same city, but at different schools. When I left town for the summer, we mutually agreed that we would not be officially dating through the summer.
For the first month we were apart, we spoke almost every day, and emailed throughout the day. Our conversations always indicated that we'd not only remain friends throughout the summer, but also date again when I got back into town. Now, just a few weeks before I return, we only talk once a week, maybe email once a day.
I don't understand his changed behavior, and all I can imagine is that he has lost interest or started dating someone else. What I really don't understand is why, when we do talk on the phone, he remains so sweet and very clearly expresses that he is excited about my return. So the content of our conversations hasn't really changed, but the frequency has.
I am missing him more than I let on, but don't want to harass him and keep calling him more often or anything like that. Do you have any advice?
Thanks so much,
Almost in love
Dear Almost in Love,
My guess is that this young man has become interested in sonething else or a person and doesn't know that you are waiting for a call. Or are you calling him? If so, stop and see if he calls to ask "why". In the meantime, meet some other boys. There are lots of fish in the sea.
You don't tell me your age so I can only imagine that you are a teenager and you have plenty of time to date others after the summer when you go back to school.
Give youself a chance.
