SO just moved 2-2.5 hours away to accept a job in his very competitive field (police officer). He has said before that getting a job in his field was important before getting engaged (he’s a little bit traditional, and wants to be able to “provide” for me, bless his heart). I will be moving out there to be with him around the end of the month (probably just after easter).
Anyway, we are taking turns visiting. He usually works W-Sat and visiting happens Sun-Tue/Wed. He started his job march 1, so we are only about a week and a half into this. His first “work week” he was very talkative to me via text message and email. He would email me when we wasn’t working and text me during his shifts (apparently this is acceptable). But this week he has been very incommunicado. And I’ve tried. I have emailed him, texted him, etc, multiple times with little or no response. I was getting fed up with this and called him twice today (when i knew he would be awake) and he finally called me back and we talked for a while with very little content.
This has gotten me thinking. He is pretty bad at keeping secrets, because, like me, he gets very excited. For example, about a year ago he bought me a surprise present and told me about it basically right after he ordered it.
Maybe he has cut down on the communication because he bought the ring and is afraid of spilling the beans? What do you think?
I know this is all conjecture, but it’s kind of fun to speculate.
Background: we have been together over 3 years and have seriously discussed marriage.
