The problem is, I've tried to talk to him so many times about our relationship that it's almost life-sucking. I don't want to talk about it, he doesn't want to talk about it, and we've gotten to the point where talking about anything serious related to our relationship is seen as negative. I don't want to leave him, I want to marry the guy. I think he know I'd never leave him, too. I, however, am not so sure.
He has admitted that he is an introvert and likes space to think by himself or time with friends to get his mind on sports or some other hobby. I understand, but have a hard time coping with it. Today he is acting a bit weird, and I honestly think it is because I asked him if everything was okay between us. I asked nonchalantly and in a positive manner, but that's when the distance started. He didn't respond to the text, so I texted again and said to let me know about the surgery when he had the time to redirect the conversation since I felt it was adding more stress. I just meant for a simple "yeah, babe, of course!" I know he's going through things, but I just wanted some reassurance, even though the distance is due to unrelated stresses.
Thanks for your answer!
