I have been dating for 9 months now. Initially, I had started planning dates, but after I started leaning back, he started pursuing, calling and messaging me every alternate day and telling me he was considering marriage at some point but was not sure. Last month I had the commitment talk with him. I noticed he was not sure. After that he started pulling away, I sent him a voice message once and he replied immediately through a voice message that he is surrounded by many issues and problems and asked me to give him some time. He was warm and joking at that time and said he needed some time and that he would call. Its been seven days and he has not even sent me a single message. I am ready to date again someone else but want to ask him at least once before quitting. Now my question is, for how many days should I wait before asking him?
