I am now divorced and have been dating a really nice man for a while now. We have great fun together and he makes me laugh. This is a long distance relationship. He is divorced and has grown children of his own. We talk daily, usually every morning, every evening, sometimes during the day if we can and we text quite a bit.
Yesterday was a bit weird. He text me in the morning saying he was already at a job and couldn't talk. He was sorry, he would try to call when he could. He wasn't able to call which is no problem. He finally sent a text sometime after lunch to see how my day was going. We had a brief text conversation. I sent him a text on my way home from work to see if he was able to talk. This is usually our normal thing. He said he was still working and would call me that evening. Again, no problem. Work is work and I understand. He text me around 8:30 to say he was on his way home. He text me that he had to get a shower from his dirty day. Then he text me that he was in bed and sleepy. I said goodnight and I would talk to him in the morning.
This morning I just waited to hear from him. He is up usually very early as am I and He finally called me at 7:00 or so and said he was waiting for me to text him. I just said something along the lines of he could have sent me a text as well. And he said "so this is how this is going to play out".
Now......we have never had this problem before. To be honest, I think I was a bit hurt that last night he didn't call and simply text me that he was tired. He could have talked for a minute or two. I do realize he probably had a long day and just was exhausted. But then why not send me a text this morning and say.....I missed talking to you all day yesterday, I'm sorry I was so busy. So right now I am feeling kind of brushed aside or unimportant. I feel like this is some game he is playing. Like this is a test of some sort or something.
My emotions have been played with enough during the past 5-6 years with my exH and I just don't have the patience for that now. Is it me??? Am I over reacting to this?? Part of me feels like I am but I am so afraid of falling back into the doormat I was with my exH!
