How old is he? Where does he live compared to you? Are you sure he is OK and safe and just ignoring you?

 Most of the time when they get out on their own it's different and they don't contact you like they did before.  Most likely he's just establishing his life on his own now.  It takes some getting use to sometimes when the kids are grown and on their own.  Your relationship takes a different path.  Hang in there.....

I agree with this.  It's pretty "normal" behavior.  Many of us moms here are going through the same thing so we feel your pain.  But, it's all a part of growing up and letting go - which is hardest on us!  :o)

Just easy off the texts and calls for a little while. Maybe he is feeling smothered.

Were you calling and texting too much? He is rebelling. I do not text or call much to my college dd, or my 21 yo that moved out in July. Some parents demand daily texts from college kids. Not me. Gotta spread their wings.

Is he living close enough for you to drop by? Did you guys have some sort of disagreement?

Young people this age aren't very good at keeping in touch with parents - he is busy being in love and enjoying life.  Hurtful?  Yes, it is.  The good thing is that they usually get past it as they age.  It;s really not that they don't care about you, it is mostly just not thinking.  I would text or call less frequently - maybe to let him know you love him or to invite he and his lady to dinner or lunch if they live nearby.

He is an adult, he doesn't have to talk to you, doesn't have to text you and doesn't have to tell you why.
