A good friend of mine Kyle(beautiful gay guy) is having a delema. I really didn't know how to help him cause I've never been in the situation so help me out everyone.... For the last 8 months or so, Kyle has been online dating this guy that he met on the internet. Kyle lives in Canada with me and his online bf Shawn lives in Florida(crazy americans..). They met in some chatroom...whatever, not the point. What IS important is that fact that at the beginning of this internet relationship, they were really close and lovey dovey. They were on MSN alllll the time, even spoke on the phone(I'd hate to see that bill), and sent each other emails 5 times a week. Everytime they spoke, they talked about how great it would be to meet up and Shawn was constantly talking about coming up to meet officially for a week or two this summer. About a month ago Kyle noticed that whole days would go by without a word from Shawn. Once they spoke again, everything was fine. Then Shawn would disappear for another day or two. Now over the last 2 weeks Kyle and Shawn have talked four times. Kyle is kinda upset about it and everytime I try to tell him that Shawn is probably not interested anymore, Kyle gets upset(cause I hate being the bad guy). Yesterday, he finally told me that he got this really sweet email last week about how much Shawn loved the idea of being with him. What advice can I offer Kyle to make him feel better. I think he is confused and really upset at how quiet Shawn has been. Any help?
