|Message:||THINK HARD. Is there anything changed or different, that could be scaring him? Did you change your hair, paint your nails, wear a different color shirt? Is there anything different in the room he's in? Can he see something scary out the window? I am guessing that he's scared of something on you or something different about you, but I don't know what. It could be the most trivial thing, too...
Best thing to do while he's scared like that is to ignore him completely. Don't even make eye contact if possible. It's really hard, I know, but pushing interaction while he's scared would be much worse for him.
