If you want to know where he really stands, pay closer attention to what he’s doing and put less emphasis on what he is and isn’t saying. If you want him to give you what you want, tell him what it is that you want!
The trick is to do it in a way that’s encouraging, not one that’s threatening, demanding, or nagging.
(Source) If a man is at work, then that is the sole center of his world and nothing exists outside of that.
The fact that a man doesn’t text you as much or as often as you’d like doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about you – he’s usually just focusing on something else and most men have a difficult time seeing beyond a given task at hand.
The really sad/funny thing is that men have NO idea how intensely their texting habits are being scrutinized. There are all kinds of reasons why this is such an issue for women and why men are so oblivious to it – reasons we’ve discussed at length in previous articles– but the takeaway is that this whole thing is a non-issue for men. Yeah, they’ll text a lot in the beginning when they’re trying to win you over, but it’s not sustainable or realistic to continue at that level indefinitely.
In the beginning, it’s all new and fresh and if he’s really into you he will be thinking about you a lot and will feel the urge to text you frequently.
When he does something you like and appreciate, acknowledge it and reward him for it.
