How many dates have you been on and how long have you known one another?

We have been communicating via email since Nov of last year. We've been seeing each other since March but due to long distance we have spent about 8 dates together but in meantime talk consistently, email consistently and have shared many deep conversations.

Ah, I imagine you met online then? Long distance relationships are at a disadvantage from the start. The growth of your relationship will be somewhat stunted, and it's easy to feel like you're further along than you really are because of a lot of electronic/phone communication. But really, the amount of time that determines the "lifespan" of your relationship is the amount of time you've spent in one another's real, physical company. So, while I understand you have had deep conversations, this relationship is still quite new. You don't really have a handle on what is in or out of character for him, and that makes this kind of problem difficult to diagnose. If you think he is being short with you, it is most likely a misunderstanding. But it's hard for you to tell that because you don't know his mannerisms very well and you're only gauging his behavior toward you as best you can.

I would suggest not making a huge deal out of this... After all, with more time in his company, you will get a better picture of what he's really like and what these gestures really mean, if anything. I would let this go for now and see how things evolve.

Long distance is hard...you can have many different and deep chats ...men are visual and physical more so than women. I sense frustration on his part. He cant see you ( web cam dont count) he cant touch you ect...that would frustrate any good man that want to love you.
