my clock its ticking, and relationship is Confusing

I am in a long distance relationship, things are no longer the same btn us, whenever we talk we end up snapping at each other.Its two months now without any improvements.

He confessed that he is not seeing anyone, but we hardly communicate about us and the future of the relationship. Whenever i talk about it, he gives excuses that he is tired or he has too much work to do, or he wants to phone to his mother.
I am 26 and he si 30 yrs old. Do u think i should leave him alone? There is a nice guy waiting, but i want to make sure if its the right thing to do but there is no communication btn me and my man.

Please do advise me on how to tackle this relationship problem.

KGs, I suppose part of the problem with a long-distance relationship is that while it's at a distance, your daily lives are very different and don't intersect, so there's nothing much in common to talk about, and you can't quite keep on discussing the future of a relationship in the abstract. Generally, it's better to just get on with each one's daily life, until the separation is over, just keeping an aimiable contact. Men don't much like that sort of dscussion even under the best of circumstances, and probably even less so over a distance and at significant extra expense !
