I am currently talking to this guy, through text.
We know each other pretty well in person too.
We live in different cities and we have been talking constantly for about 2 months. We really connect and he is moving closer for work soon. And we have discussed starting to see each other once he moves here.
My question is, what do I do if his tone has somewhat changed (I know you can’t always tell through text, but we’ve been talking long enough that I can tell, just trust me.) It’s been like this for about a week now, and I feel that our conversations aren’t flowing as well as they were, they just feel forced now.

Also, he has been taking longer to respond and his responses are a lot shorter.
There hasn’t been even a span of 5 hours in the last 2 months that we haven’t talked.
So what should I do? Should I back off for a bit, let him come to me?
I don’t want to keep trying and making it seem like I’m trying too hard.
Should I ignore his texts for a day??
Maybe he needs space?
Or should I just ask him about it?? We have amazing conversation, we have already discussed our intentions and I feel comfortable asking him, I just don’t want to look like I am over thinking everything (which could be a possibility)

Do you guys still meet in person? Personally I think it is pointless just communicating by text when you seldom meet. He is probably meeting other girls in person. Just wait for him to text you.

I would back off. The easiest way to get someone’s attention is to give them none of yours. That way you see if he’s interested. You also see if he wants power in the relationship by making you come to him each time.

In my personal experience, I usually reduce conversations with a long distance interest if something local becomes available. It’s a way of making myself not feel like I’m leading someone on without completely ending discussions which could hurt feelings as well.

Personally i suggest to let him come to you, lay back the effort a little bit let him chase you.
you’ll see then if he really is serious , if he does chase you back then it’s serious if not, you might want to think about it again

Long distant relationship hardly works.and because you guys live in different cities you don’t know what his up to. His tone probably changed because he has a new girlfriend now. You just just confront him.

Wait it out, see what happens but don’t force the issue

Wait it out and be a mirror to his text. If he waits 5hrs, u wait 5hrs. If he types a paragraph, u do the same but a little less. You guys probably don’t have tons to text about and the general rule is: only text to make plans or just a quick hi. You’ve just gotta take this with a grain of salt and realise some people are more passive then others. Best of luck to you 🙂 FYI I’d text my gf all day … She waits awhile so I have to be a mirror. Experienced in this Dept haha
