I have a long distance relationship between the UK and Australia.
We have known each other for a long while and got back into contact with one another after a few years where we drifted apart. As of February this year, we decided to meet up and take our relationship a bit further. We talked every day through Facebook (the easiest way for us both) and occasionally skyped with each other. The original date of his visit had to be changed due to issues with passports, but was rescheduled for two weeks later - which wasn’t a problem. He even waited for a Skype conversation to break this news to me so he could tell me personally.
A week ago, he left the town he had moved to and went back to his hometown for ease of access to the airport. This is where it all got a bit complicated. For the last week it has been almost impossible to get hold of him - partly due to sickness early in the week and from visiting his old friends later in the week. But the time of his flight approached and I still hadn’t heard anything about the flight code so I couldn’t be sure. Thanks to the feature on facebook, I noticed that he hadn’t seen any of my recent messages from Sunday, Monday or today. His friends haven’t heard anything from him, it’s like he’s dropped off the face of the earth.
Because I don’t have his phone number, I rely a lot on facebook, and knowing that he’s not getting/seeing my messages is utterly heartbreaking, seeing as he was so excited to come over. He was supposed to be landing today so I went to the airport anyway to see if he was there, waited for three hours and then I had to go home alone.
I got in touch with one of his friends, asking if they’d heard from him but apparently he’s not said a word since returning to his hometown. I’m really worried and I have no idea what to do. This is apparently really uncharacteristic of him, and the guilt at being mad at him is eating me up in case he’s really sick or something awful. Of course, he might have gotten cold feet but all we talked about was how excited we were to see each other, and his friend agreed he wouldn’t have backed out of it.
All help and opinions are welcome, I just need to hear something to help me get some closure.
