Hi everyone, I'm not usually one to post on here about problems but this one has got me stumped and I'd be interested in what people think... I've been seeing a chap since August - we're not kids, I;m 37 and he's 34. All seemed to be going well until around two weeks ago when he stopped making quite as much contact. He was renting a room in the same city as me but has a house near Manchester. Anyway, after being a bit quiet for a while, he called me last weekend and said he was in Manchester as his job here had finished. He said that we would still see each other and wanted to come down this week to stay with me - all good. He was to arrive on Monday. On Monday evening he called and said he was still in Manchester but would come on Wednesday. Wednesday arrived and no message until he texted in the evening and said he'd been trying to call but couldn't get through. Other people had called me without problems so I thought something might be wrong with his phone. He then called and seemed to think that it was all 'really bad' and that he was sorry and would make it up to me. I then got some texts saying that he likes me a lot and would come over on Thursday - and he repeated this in the morning. I got home yesterday evening and ... nothing. No calls or texts. No response to any texts and when I called the phone rang then went to voicemail. At first I thought he was standing me up again but as today went on without any contact I got really worried. This evening I got a text from his number saying it was his friend and that he'd left his phone there when he left yesterday morning and that if I saw him could I tell him. The question is, if he's not there, and not here, where is he? I've tried his number in Manchester and it just rings. No further contact from the friend. Am very confused and worried. Can only think of the following: A) He's had an accident and is unable to give details to any emergency staff B) He's gone off to a third party and never intended to see me C)He never intended to see me, is with his friend and has sent the text so I'll stop calling Sorry for long post but am also trying to get it straight in my head. Any thoughts?
