Thank you for your reply above. So you don't think I should come clean and tell him exactly how I feel, lay the cards out in front of him so to speak and see what his response is? He is a very established man, free spirited, travels a lot, I think easily distracted, but very sensitive and somewhat shy when talking intimately. I think likes a woman who he finds challenging or challenges his decisions/opinions as he is a man who usually gets what he wants. I can certainly be that woman, however will holding off from contacting him altogether show him that? It will certainly show him that I'm not clingy and like you say his true feelings for me. We're not dating we're supposed to be in a r/ship, he asked me to be his girlfriend so that's why I feel maybe I should handle this by saying what I need to and not by holding off the contact?
