So maybe not....

...so sunshiny and sweet. Or maybe it's my basketcase tendencies rearing their ugle head again. But Karl has become non-communicative.

We had a great conversation Tuesday night, as I mentioned. He told me that he loves getting texts from me during the day -- they are his "escape" in a hectic day, he said. When things are busy, he can't always reply immediately, but said to not worry because he would as soon as he could.

So, I texted Wednesday morning to say "have a great day." The reply was "U 2. I'm driving." In other words, can't text right now. I sent a couple more that day and Thursday. Replied to one of his emails from earlier in the week. What was the reply I got?

Nothing. Silence.

I called Thursday night. We talked about his daughter and his business, which plopped a huge stress in his lap that day. When we got off the phone, he said, "I'll text you tomorrow." He didn't.

This morning I bit the bullet and sent him an email, asking if something was wrong. Maybe the conversation Tuesday went further than he wanted. He did tell me a lot of intimate details. Maybe my texts are no longer an "escape," but a nuisance. Maybe it's been too stressful of a week and he's had no time or energy. Maybe he's lost interest. I just don't know. I can't guess. At first, he told me he likes to communicate, but not this week, buck-o.

Now, I'm not the type who demands attention all the time. I'm not high-maintenance, as long as I'm clued-in. I just hate inconsistency and lack of communication. I don't like guessing games. He's been upfront with me until now, not letting me guess about anything. Now, it's different, and I don't know why.

So, once again, I'm left to wonder if it's gone bad so quickly. What's the deal? How did we go from intense "how compatible we are!" to silence? I just don't get it....

He got bored with you.
It's sad, but true.
I know cuz I get that way with people sometimes. They're awesome and I can't get enough of them and then POOF! I'm bored with them and I don't reply to their messages anymore. It happens. *shrugs*

Wow...that smarts....

I just feel like there's a piece of the puzzle here I'm missing.

Oh...I don't know....

He just may have a lot on his mind, thinking, seeing if he is moving to fast? I dunno either, but hopefully in the email he will let you in on it!

Hope all is well on his end and he will just be a man and let ya know!

I'm about to update, but he called Sunday night. I don't think he saw the email I sent yet. He's had a lot going on and has been spending a lot of time with his daughter. I'm just going to back off on my end of the communicating and see what happens.

Thanks for keeping those fingers crossed, Single!
