I have been dating a guy for about 2 months. He asked me to date exlusive with him and he said I love you first. We seemed to be doing well until this week. He hasn't been calling and texting as much when we first got together. No more good morning messages or calls. I usually text him in the middle of the day to say I hope he has a good day and so forth. He normally doesn't answer and calls me after he gets off work. Regardless though, texts and calls are not as frequent. Earlier this week I go swamped at work and went to do something immediatly after work so I didn't get a chance to text him or call him. He texted me on his lunch and called me after work. He said his phone was dieing and he would call me when he got home. He ended up texting me and we talked for a bit through text. Somehow there was a misunderstanding and he left in the middle of the conversation. I apologized for whatever it was that I did and left him be. I texted him midday yesterday like I normally would and got no response as usual. No big deal. Just went about my day. He forwarded me some jobs for my sister, like he has been for the last couple of weeks but no answer to the text. At the normal time he would call me when he got off work, the phone rings but it appears he butt dialed me. I texted him back saying I noticed he had called and that I didn't want to bug him because I know he was going to see his daughters and call me or text me if he wanted and that I loved him. 2 hours after I sent the last text, he texted me that he was home and that he loved me too. I didn't respond because I was asleep. I don't know if I should take a step back because that appears to be what he's doing or should I shoot him a text like normal? I feel like he is withdrawing a little but not so much he has completely stopped contact. I am used to talking to him everyday. Could it be that relationship is just evolving and he feels comfortable and isn't putting forth as much work and if that's the case what should I do? Sorry for this entry being so long but some advice on what I should do would be great! Thanks!
