I am strongly going against what others may have said here. I am going to tell it like i see it.
I would take his action as a definite "no" and extinguish the candle.
A candle spell of this type -- which functions both as divination and as a spell -- must be treated as both, and i instruct my students and shop clients to look for signs within three days. Well, in your case, the sign came the next day and it was a big "NO." If the sign you see is a "no," then the spell too is a no-go.
The "three method" that Mary mentions above was taught to me like this:Look for SIGNS in THREE DAYS.
Look for MOVEMENT in THREE WEEKS.
Look for COMPLETION in THREE MONTHS.
Now, signs, movements, and completion are three different things. What you saw when he "closed" you was a sign -- and it was a total shut-down NO sign and to me, it says, "This ain't gonna happen."
So many people think that they should proceed with a long-term spell like setting lights or making a honey jar even after the signs are bad, but for me, the opposite has always been true. Likewise, even if the signs were good to neutral, but i saw no movement in three weeks, i would walk away from the spell. We are not looking for last-minute turn-arounds here -- on the 90th day he suddenly calls you -- rather, we are looking for good signs, positive movement, and a successful outcome, completing the spell. If we get good signs and some good movement, we may add other spell work to the process, to increase our success rate. If we get bad signs and no movement, it is, in my experience, very unlikely that there will be a good oucome.
A love spell / divination like this is a delicate dance. You had a slight connection in the virtual world. You upped the ante by lighting a Come To Me candle. Then you waited for a sign. He responded by shutting you out of his virtual world -- a clear sign of non-interest. He has free will, you have free will, and when he felt the "come to me" vibes you sent out, he ran away. End of virtual romance. There is no reason to pursue him. Look for someone else.
I mean, what is the point of looking for signs while the candle burns, if you don't actually heed the signs?
