How long have you been seeing each other?
Are you broken up now?
If so who's idea was it?
Do you want to work this out?
We have been dating for alomst one year and have been friends for 11 years. I do not know if we are broken up since we just altogether stopped talking to each other. Why should I initiate the call when he knows my mom is sick? I do not know if I want to work this out, but I do want an explanation for his behavior. The lame excuse he offered for not spending much quality time with me was being stressed and busy. My job is FAR more stressful than his. The last thing said was when I advised him that the relationship had not progressed because he did not give me the little time I asked for.
Making a relationship out of something that used to be a friendship for so long is difficult to say the least. Since your friendship was set at one level, he likely figures its ok for the relationship to follow the same pattern. Which isn't fair to you.
As for a explanation, while you can ask for one you likely will not get it. Men are typically pretty defensive when they end a relationship and more often then not will give no real reason, or a lame one such as what you received.
The reality is you need to sit down and decide what you want and need in a partner, and then consider wither he is what you really want and need. If you do not want to work this out then its time to move on.........the reality is you need someone who is going to be a part of your life and if he isn't interested in spending more time with you and being a part of your life then your going to have these problems.
