I'm sort of recently divorced, and I recently reconnected with a guy I've known for about 15 years. We meet when I was a freshman in college. Several times over the years, we've gone on one date and stopped because it just wasn't right. It was always him who pursued. Well, we ran into each other about a month ago, and he immediately asked me out. We've been on four dates since then.
Now I'm Wondering
Initially, he was really giving the full-court press - Texting or calling every day and frequently. Last week, it became a little more sporadic. In fact, we had plans for Saturday evening and I had to initiate contact on Friday to find out the specifics. (I like things to be organized more than your average person, so there's that.) On our date on Saturday he kind of clumsily told me he loved me to which I did not respond. I left the next morning with things being great between us, but now we've only texted and his texting is so sporadic. He'll initiate, I'll respond quickly, but then he doesn't reply for nearly 24 hours. It is bugging the hell out of me. I really like him a lot, but not to the point of love. I would like things to keep going. I felt like maybe I should initiate more communication so he knew I was interested, but now I'm doing that and he's being so slow at getting back to me. It is really hard to concentrate at work. Every time I think I'll just move on if I don't hear from him soon, he texts. It is like he knows. How should I handle this?
