How many times does he try to approach you, know more about who you are, or simply check how your day is going?
The number of times he attempts to initiate contact with you every day or every week should definitely not be noticeably lower than your number of attempts.
Keep in mind that phone calls and texts work both ways, so don’t accept any excuse why he didn’t have time to reply or check on you.
Also, it’s important to remember that if someone truly cares about you, they will certainly find some time during the day to talk or meet. Don’t swallow your sorrows and shut your concerns behind a door in the back of your head, let him know that you won’t be taken for granted and that you have your own life that doesn’t turn revolve him!
Once you realize your own worth, it’d be so easy for you to set boundaries, put down your phone, and let him do his crucial part of relational maintenance. Just don’t chase him.
