So i dated a taurus man for a year, we were really inlove but we were also naive and he left me abruptly and had a lot going on, fast forward almost 2 years, were in contact again, he dated someone during that time, but he ended it and told me he loved me and missed me and knew it wasn’t going to work with her. he wanted her to be more like me and she wasn’t happy with that. but the first time around we did jump into things fast and the first week of us being in communication again we moved a bit fast too and saw eachother everyday and it felt surreal. but all of a sudden he tells me we should take it slow because he doesn’t want to get too comfortable again and that he really wants to focus and grind because his work has been slow so hes been unmotivated and he hasn’t had time for himself (since he was in that relationship). he said he didn’t wanna hurt me again and just wanted me to understand. usually he wouldn’t be so open but he communicated this with me and i told him i understood and it would help us build a stronger foundation if we also had our own separate lives and were able to come together. a part of me is bothered because he was able to be comfortable with this girl but with me he needs to wait. but i also don’t know if this is a good thing bc he actually wants to be sure and patient with me? since we had that talk of what taking it slow kinda means, i’ve tried not to be like i was in the past and ask and demand for answers as that pushes them away more and i know bulls need their space. im a cancer woman so i cant help but be a bit anxious that he might just disappear again but this time for good. since that talk we’ve been texting everyday except now he hasn’t responded since last night at 5, he was with family, he views my snap stories but hasn’t texted me at all today and its almost 3 pm. i cant help but to feel some type of way, my heart trusts him but my head is like no he doesn’t want you. i know he needs to feel secure and especially with work and home life in order for him to thrive and he tends to pull back to deal with his things. its hard after the intense week we had just to take it slow and then to no response. kind of afraid we won’t speak till next week or the next week after whenever he decides to respond. should i be patient and wait it out or call it quits. i am trying to keep myself occupied because i did have a life before he came back but i want my life with him in it too and its buggin me out! lol how long is too long to wait? this man is everything to me and we always had a lot of trust in eachother in the past and we both want the same things, we never really had problems, the only problems we had was that he just wants his life together before really getting too comfortable so he would push me away and i was really codependent in the past. he said he doesn’t know why he broke up with me if he was so happy, but he was just unhappy with his life at the time. i would really appreciate any advice!
