You may have been going out with someone and just when you thought things were going good between the two of you, you might have noticed that he or she started to contact you less and less. You might have texted him or her to go out again, and he or she may have said that he or she had other plans, or he or she may have started ignoring your calls instead of answering all of them. So, what do you do if you notice that the person that you are interested has started responding less often to your texts and calls? What do you do if this person now has an excuse as to why he or she can't go out with you? Though the answers to these questions may be different for everyone, here are a few suggestions.

1. Approach him or her about it.

Try to find a way to meet up with the person that you were dating so the two of you can talk face to face. Ask him or her what is going on, and leave the door open for him or her to be honest if he or she no longer wants to go out. Tell him or her how you felt about the time that you shared together and where you thought it was going. Ask him or her if he or she felt the same way. If you find that the two of you were on different pages, you might have an easier time moving on.

2. Stop calling and texting him or her.

If he or she is ignoring every other phone call or text, then stop calling and texting all together. Use that extra time that you would have used waiting for him or her to answer the phone to do something that you like to do and something that makes you happy. Try not to worry that the other person isn't answering your calls. Instead focus on how much fun you are having with the extra time you have.

3. Move on.

Instead of waiting for him or her to come around, count your losses and move on. Try to find someone else that wants to spend time with you and enjoys going out to the places that you like to spend time at. Maybe, it will be a stepping stone to a new romance.

If your date isn't responding to your calls and texts as often as he or she used to and if he or she is always preoccupied when you are trying to spend time with him or her, then it may be time to change things up. Try to talk to him or her about it, and if that doesn't work, then try focusing on the other things in your life. Only time will tell what will happen next.
