I think you might have been the same poster who asked a similar question as before..either way...here is an answer that I gave last time too that either way, will address your questions.
It doesn't necessarily mean that he is no longer interested. What women don't know is that men naturally move forward and back in relationships. A man may suddenly, out of the blue, want to take a break and may stop calling you for 2-3 weeks. That's because with guys, we are not communication and talk oriented and men like to connect, then disconnect and regain some of our mental and emotional freedom and independence. This confuses women because women want to connect and stay connected all the time, they don't get that men need a lot more space than a woman does.
Even if a man says that he wants to connect all the time and does it for week or months at a time, no matter how much he loves a woman, he'll eventually need to pull back for several weeks to regain balance and refind himself.
It doesn't mean that he is no longer in love with you or want to be with you, it has NOTHING to do with you or his feelings for you at all, but women of course lump it all together and assume that it does. To him, he takes a break for a few weeks but then when he comes back the woman is pissed off, hurt, confused and gives HIM an attitude when he does come back, which he doesn't understand why. He then figures that she was NOT he person that he thought because she was never so nasty or rude to him before, but now she is so he figures that her real attitude is now coming out. Women think that he is another man playing games, but he's doing NO such thing and in fact most men are not even aware that they are doing this nor how women have perceived it and that they're now pissed off and hurt.
Sure, sometimes if a guy stops calling for a long time it may be that he is no longer interested, but if the woman gives him a huge attitude when he DOES try to come back, the she's just about guaranteeing that the relationship will be over.
So it's only been a week, which is nothing to a man who is in "Withdrawal" or "Rebalancing" mode. On the flip side, usually this occurs to a man after a few months of dating, so one month is a short time to need to take a break.
Either way, I would wait another week and see if he calls or contacts you in some way. If not, just send him a quick text message or email asking him in a casual ways..what's up, how you doing, hit me back if you still want to talk.. take care.
This way he is not pressured to talk and YOU will come across as being very secure and OK with him taking a break, which women HAVE to be because you have to understand that men do NOT want to connect or talk all the time. We are naturally independent and even when married, probably more so, a man needs to have time alone to find himself and to BE himself because men too often lose themselves in relationships and a big part of a man resents that fact. So that is why they unconsciously withdraw every 2-3 months for a couple to a few weeks at a time.
