Re: Thinking a bit...
May I step in here?
First, I don't see how establishing his business would get in the way of his personal life. How come he is focused only on building his future! Can't he make time to have a little fun, too, in the present? Unless he thinks that having you as his girl-friend would be overwhelming, that you would rob him of all his precious time, I think this sounds like a lame excuse.
He is 36, isn't he? About time he started to think about settling down, no?
And what about when his business "gets off its feet"? Do you think he will manage to have a little window of his time for you? How much do you think would be enough for you?
My impression is that he is way too business-minded, and would certainly carry this on into any personal relationship, making it suffer.
Or, on second thoughts, he might simply not be interested in you romantically speaking, or maybe not in any particular woman at all. Ok, I can't vouch for this, but a man can be a gentleman and a man can be respectful and a man can be polite, but a man is not made of iron. If he won't make any advances, he will at least drop a hint.
I may be wrong, but it seems that nothing coming from this guy shows he has at least a crush on you.
My two cents.
