I would like to know if I am being too pushy and not backing off. I do not want to lose him so I am not calling him, and trying to help him so much.

I love spending time with him but he seems so sad and withdrawn. He says it is the wrong timing for him that we met. He says I am a wonderful person and his family wants him to find a nice woman like me. He is 46, works with me at a social service agency and we are both artists. We have a great deal in common.

We keep fighting because I want to see him and he is pulling away. He told me to stop calling him so much, so I have.

I just need some help on what others think and if they are going through the same thing or have before I would appreciate any imput.
