I've been dating a guy for 6 months. Things have been great, great communication daily, time spent as much as possible with our schedules...up until recently. Lately, I've seen him once a week (usually Sunday afternoon) because of his commitment to his two sons from a prior marriage. I reiterated to him multiple times that my bday was coming up and I wanted to do something with him. Unfortunately, he had a pre-planned trip with his son and was gone the week of my birthday. Ok, cool. During the trip he contacted me very rarely. On my bday (Thursday), I got a text saying "happy birthday old lady", and didn't hear from him until 3 days later (Sunday). He arrived back in town Saturday. On Monday, I speak with him, he asks nothing about my week or how I've been, but informs me that his son is spending the night and he is busy. Maybe I was wrong for expecting something more than a text message from him. At this point, I feel like I am barely a priority. I understand he has commitments to his sons and that's great, we've been working around it this whole time, but now I feel as if something has changed. I certainly can't and won't complain about a man being a father, but I also feel like I barely matter. At this point, I haven't seen him in two and a half weeks. How do I proceed?
