GD is now 8 months. Son has always been a little distant but after baby was born was a bit more in touch and saw a bit more of him which was nice. We now seem to have settled back into the old routine of only occasional contact. Messages are sometimes answered sometimes not ( he reads them all he has told me before) calls are generally answered or returned at least. Arrangements are often cancelled at the last minute with an alternative that is then not followed up /forgotten. He rarely contacts me now and I am growing tired of always having to try and maintain contact as it's not really working.
The thing that worries me most is he has often become distant like this when he has problems in a relationship particularly with money and his girlfriend at the time. He won't discuss things like this with me or his father so it is difficult to know what to do for the best.
Irritating personality traits haven't softened - do friendships change?
Needed but feeling left out - do others feel the same?
