Dear Diana, I am in a relationship with a fantastic guy and I'm totally in love with him. He is the guy I want to spend the rest of my life with. He used to stay in my neighbourhood in Mumbai but recently after his father's retirement, the family has shifted to Pune. We've been talking to each other almost daily but since the past few days, he's not keeping up with my calls and kind of avoiding me. This has led me to be suspicious of him as he was never like this before. He was the one who used to take all the initiatives but lately his attitude is a matter of concern. I don't know what I must do as I feel he's hiding something. - Akhila

Dear Akhila, You are unnecessarily jumping the gun. Remember he and his folks have just shifted to a new place, so there is lots to do on their end. It's not easy moving homes, and relocating to a new city makes it even more tough.There may be so many things on his mind that he may be unable to be in touch with you throughout the day like before. I think he is just caught up with loads of work at his end. So just be patient. But at the same time he can just tell you that he is tied up in setting up home, so he may not be able to talk to you for long everyday. Perhaps there could have been an emergency too due to which he is unable to get in touch with you. Check with common friends and then jump to conclusions.
