So I have a similar problem
I am 25 years old and have been dating this guy for almost 3 months, who is 26 years old.
He is a great guy, someone who I always longed to meet and we hit it off instantly. He is an introvert but is very talkative whenever i am with him.
So we usually meet once or twice a week and the last time i met him was nearly 2 weeks ago. I started the topic about whether we are actually ‘exclusive’, as i don’t see this is just dating. He agreed and said that he classes me as his lady rather than the usual cliche talk about being bf / gf. He also said he wants to meet my Mum and i agreed to that too.
His family are aware of me too, so he says.
However since we last met, we have had daily contact via txt but we haven’t spoken on the phone. He then didn’t contact me for 2 days which was very out of character, so I gave in and attempted to call him but no answer. I then messaged him just to see if he was OK. He messaged me the following morning saying ‘Good Morning’ like things are normal. I replied with a delayed response saying ‘morning.’ Since this, no contact has been given. It’s approaching 2 weeks since i haven’t even heard his voice, what should i do?
I feel like im going crazy because I have seriously fallen for this guy?
I know i should give him space but i feel so lost and confused.March 16, 2016 at 10:55 am #516574
2 weeks is a long time!!
It sounds like he has moved on…even if he hasn’t l would suggest you do. A man shouldn’t treat you like this. 2 weeks silence is simple rude imo.
Sorry you are experiencing this.March 23, 2016 at 10:56 am #518874
It’s been six months we are together and there were little up n downs and one major fight but then he returned back to me after blocking me from everywhere within 15 days, coming up with things like I miss you and stuff. Recently over the weekend I had an argument with him n he was on mistake so he apologized me whole night n things went normal. Even the next day we were talking in routine then at night he suddenly being non responsive n he blocked me in the morning by saying he needs ten days time to think about it and I miss him so bad afteR that going through swear depression. I send him several texts after that but he is being non responsive he reads them but don’t reply.August 2, 2016 at 5:18 am #553242
Hi, I have been with this guy for four months and we have been madly in love but two weeks ago we were supposed to have a weekend get a way together, he cancelled for work and that had to travel so I decided to travel for the weekend alone, while their I kept in touch and he told me he had gotten a food poisoning and un well, I felt bad and checked on him until when he returned and kept his phones off and we haven’t been communicating for like two weeks, I love him but I even don’t know whats going on between us. He has three kids, got a versectomy so he cant have more children and I love him anyway I chose to underlook that, but do you think he loves me well enough, iam scared I love him so much, thank you.

HI AmyAugust 6, 2016 at 10:20 am #554354
Omg.same problem with me. So how your situation? I know how you feelAugust 6, 2016 at 10:22 am #554355
Oohh no…im facing a same situation. Already 1 week he silent from me. We dont fight, but i dont knowAugust 30, 2016 at 1:43 pm #560597
I have been through this too. One of my ex was a big time cheat, he was married but pretended to be single. He also played the same Meet and Withdraw game. Anyhoo, I sent a nice big email and all photos, selfies he had shared with me to his wife and her brother. Coming to my current boyfriend, we met over the weekend and since then he is silent. We were not dating but had feelings for each other. I even talked to his friends briefly when they called. We had a great time but I don’t understand the silent treatment. I guess I am just unlucky in love. 😔😔 After all this drama, Men claim that Women are complicated. I guess someone else caught his fancy, as I can see him online on whatsapp for late hours.October 1, 2016 at 4:26 pm #568320
Ok, so I met a guy via a dating app…we chatted via the app for about a week and I gave him my number. We’ve been texting everyday for almost two months with occasional phone calls and he was supposed to come see me this weekend and meet friends at a local event. We spoke on the phone Monday night, and texted Tue am…he texted he couldn’t wait to see me.
I texted him Tue eve with no response, no biggie but didn’t hear from him at all Wed. I sent a “Hi” text and a “Hi” via the app on Thur nothing…emailed him yesterday (Fri) that I hope he’s okay because I’m worried about him.
Now it’s Sat and I haven’t heard from him at all, I feel like a total fool! I will not contact him again but I just don’t get what happened? If he couldn’t come see me why not just say so, I don’t understand this “Ghosting” mentality. It hurts more to just be dropped then at least some sort of explanation…wondering if he’ll contact me again, just feeling defeated!October 2, 2016 at 11:46 am #568430

This rubber band thing sounds crazy. You have to know what you want. Do you want a guy that disappears for a few days? Because he will keep doing it. It should be unacceptable. Find a guy who is all in. Not lukewarm. I assure you, you deserve better than a guy that stops talking for a few days. if you’ve been seeing each other for 4 months he should know how he feels. Its not a question of will he come back..etc, It’s a point of don’t settle for less than what you deserve. Find someone who doesn’t make you wonder if they are interested. especially after 4 months.November 14, 2016 at 3:46 pm #578178

I started seeing a man 2 mon the ago. We were, I thought, on the same book, same page. He has 2 twin 17 year old daughters and a 14 year old. He told me things like he was totally into me and that I was ” right ” for him. This past weekend he tells me that while he was getting ready to come over for my birthday, the 14 year old asked if he had a date and he said yes. She said same girl, he said yes. She said ” Well don’t bring her over here, I’ll do something if you do, so don’t bring her over here. ” So I asked if what she said would have an effect on him seeing me and all he says is ” I hope not.” Now mind you that he thought that what she said was funny. And now all of a sudden he has stopped talking to me and I have no idea why.November 22, 2016 at 10:38 pm #580149
Teresa you are wasting your time with this guy. While children should always come first, it is not funny the way she spoke to her father.
I don’t introduce my son to anyone unless things get very serious (and that takes a fairly long time of dating so I can be sure) but I would also never allow him to be so disrespectful, belligerent, or dictate how I (an adult and his Mother) will conduct myself. Of course, I also wouldn’t bring someone around my child this early on either. It sets a very bad precdent to have dates popping and out of our kids lives. They need stability, for us to set the right example, and for us to show we will consider the impact of our decisions on them, first and foremost.
I do think people are way too quick to bring a romantic interest into the lives of their children, but that’s an aside. However, if he has a habit of bringing new women around I could understand resentment from his daughter. Regardless of all this, you are new and his children will come first.
If you are already unwelcome and he thinks it’s funny, it shows how little he respects this situation and I’m not impressed with how he handled this. Why did he need to tell you that? Unless he’s trying to make it very clear you shouldn’t get attached.
I’d do myself a favor and tell him thanks but no thanks, this isn’t going to work.November 22, 2016 at 10:40 pm #580151
Teresa… He’s reflecting.

It saddens me to read all of these experiences women have with men because I’ve had them all myself. I’ve made the same attempts, had the same patience, gave the same space, made excuses….and on and on. I’m 46 and one thing I know for sure: I simply do not want a man who goes silent on me like that. I am most certainly not a woman who needs a ton of attention. I enjoy my own space and me time. BUT, I do require a man to respect me as a person they love. Going silent for a week at a time (in my experience) is not love…it’s total fear and insecurity. A day …maybe 2 tops is ok IF you’ve been together a long time…and I mean a year or more. To love someone and be in a relationship means you RELATE equally…not just disappear.
It all comes down to work for YOU. If it doesn’t feel right for YOU then simply don’t do it.February 24, 2017 at 12:19 pm #605536
This post is like 3 years old….February 27, 2017 at 12:20 am #606203
This is almost two and a half years later but I have the same problem. My boyfriend going into the man cave and going no contact for three weeks, I’ve messaged and called to no avail I did nothing but support him and be sexy with him. Maybe he was overwhelmed by it all, I feel he will come back but it’s very nerve wracking not knowing why he did this. He wants space? we all do, just tell me you want it, and I’ll leave you alone.February 27, 2017 at 9:55 am #606278
I agree with L, if you haven’t heard from a man in a week it is done. Especially if you’ve been reaching out. This isn’t him needing me time in his cave, this is him ghosting. Please, do not take this behavior from anyone. Going into your cave is a short period of time, not weeks on end of leaving you hanging. That’s a guy who is not into you but will date you if there’s no one else. Please have more respect for yourself than to take this behavior.July 11, 2017 at 3:11 pm #640658
I’m over 40 seeing a man for 9 months we were friends for 7 months before that. He does the same thing. When we are together it’s great he’s loving romantic and we have fu he always pays for me. But when I’m not with him he’s single and meets lots of people as he’s a golfer and loves music. He won’t commit to me it’s caused fights and the last one was final that I’ll cut him out and he comes back. But its on weekends when hes away golfing he only texted me twice in 3 days last weekend. I saw him last night he’s cold but tired. I’m suppose to see him today. It seems he’s loving when hes drinking. He loves another woman but pretty sure it’s long over that was 1 yr back. He’s never married or had kids and spends ally of time with male friends he sees me 2 times a week. I feel maybe he’s no and loves men more but I love his company.. ..July 11, 2017 at 3:35 pm #640675
You’re settling for his company… I bet you could do WAY better…July 12, 2017 at 9:57 pm #641012
