Does He, or doesn't he?

The Question


We met at work, both divorced...single for awhile. Instant connection...but long distance. Time passed, lay off made it an option to move, so I picked closer to him.

As soon as I got close, he pulled away. I'm six years older than him. Over 8 years he has come back into my life from a distance, and disappeared just as fast.

My question is...could this be a mid life thing, where he needs his freedom...or am I destined to feel this deeply all alone? He never does answer a direct question.

Noel's response

My guess is that it is more than a midlife transition. He acts as though he is afraid of commitment. I suggest you move on.
