So my BF and I have been going out for 3 months. Everything was perfect till a week and a half ago. We went out and he was cranky and almost had a fight with someone because he (wrongly) thought he was flirting with me, at home the condom broke and he completely freaked out blaming himself for the "disaster". He behaved like a jerk, couldn't even look at me let alone touch me so I simply got up and left. I was upset and he knew it. He didn't contact me again - or so I thought- for over a week. I was too proud to call myself (the whole he is not that into you thing I guess) but today, prompted by a friend I sent him a text to inform him that he needn't worry about a possible pregnancy as I am not pregnant.It was not an angry text in any way, just neutral. About two hours later my phone went mad and started churning out messages. It turns out that during the week he sent me 11 texts to apologize and then to ask if I was all right as I never answered. They all came the same time as his answer to my text thanking me for putting his mind at ease and wishing me a pleasant Sunday. I sent 2 more texts explaining that I never received any of his texts or I would have answered but silence... obviously he is mad. I know I wouldn't buy this excuse if someone gave it to me, yet it is the truth. I feel like kicking the wall right now. I wasn't prepared to be treated like that by anyone and was determined to walk but in reality I really like the guy and we had been happy up until two and a half weeks ago and he was obviously willing to talk and work it all out. So, what on earth do I do? At the end of the day it wasn't even my fault.

PS the phone problem happened once more about two weeks ago when I missed a friend's text

Any advice will be hugely appreciated.

So you got into a fight, and you gave him less of the cold shoulder than he thought you did,

Hey coconut
thanks very much for replying.
I am still in two minds about it. Part of me wants to work things ou and part of me asks if he is worth it. He was great before and he is not a great communicator to begin with (really shy, private guy). I am of course giving him space (I guess I am giving myself space)but the jury is out....

Have you tried CALLING him instead of texting him?
