So we started talking on the phone, the first thing he asked was my age, which I told him (mid 30s) and he told me his(mid 40s).

He used to call me every day but he later told me that the calls will be reduced because of the cost he incurs. He also suggested that the calls should be two way. 
After about a month of our meeting, we started skyping. He told me that he loves me and suggested that I end every skype session of ours with I love you. He also chided me for
