We can continue to talk here...
Why did you say he wouldn't like that?
What kind of work does he do? and you said, he said that he's stressed because of his past....can you explain?
It's understandable when people have been hurt that they hold on to those emotions, sometimes for a very long time. However, you have been seeing him now for 10 months, and it seems a little strange that after all this time, he now decides that he's stressed. Maybe he has more feelings for you now than he expected and is starting to get cold feet, or it could be that he's having second thoughts about the relationship itself.
It kind of leaves the decision in your hands, do you hang in there or do you give up, maybe thats what he's trying to see. So, decide on how much longer you are willing to wait. Two weeks? Four weeks? Another six weeks? Be sure to let him know that you are not happy being away from him this long and assure him that you are not going to hurt him. I welcome your thoughts, let me know if you want to talk more
