For the most part I act like I have my own thing going on and everything is fine. I’ve addressed the issue once before and he listened, but had no idea anything was even wrong. It kills me that he was more involved in my life when we lived 1500 miles apart.
I specified that when I moved here I was NOT looking for a commitment, I am very independent, but I was looking forward to spending some time with him, and he felt the same way. Is he over it and just avoiding the uncomfortable confrontation? OR is he just like every normal guy who starts neglecting their relationship after a while and doesn’t feel the need to put in any additional effort?
I want to talk to him again and tell him how I really feel but I’m TORN because if I come off as the nagging girlfriend he will be even more turned off to me, but if I sit silently I will watch my relationship fade away in misery.
In the end, we both agreed it seemed like a good decision.
He started to become distant over the summer but I wrote it off as a phase.
Then I moved here three weeks ago and he is a completely different person.
We are suddenly not having sex, and it is a chore for him to see me even once a week, if that. I’ve been worried that he is paranoid that I am going to compromise his independent life and so I’ve been giving him A LOT of space, even though it is very painful and lonely for me.
In fact, if you didn’t move 1500 miles to be with him, he probably would have dumped you by now. When he tells you that it’s a misunderstanding, that he’s been busy, that he really loves you, let him know that you understand, but this is your well-considered decision.
The fact that he hasn’t yet actually makes him think he’s being nice. It’s scary and daunting and lonely, and yet there is no better tonic for getting over an ex than to move on successfully. It was good while it lasted, best of luck, goodbye. No matter how lonely you are, no matter how much you miss him, keep walking.
But make no mistake: his actions are saying loudly what his words cannot. Pining away waiting for him to come around is just slowly peeling off the Band-Aid. This creates a very clear choice: if he chases after you HARD (and that’s up for you to determine), you might end up with a devoted boyfriend.
I recently graduated from college and had been seeing someone long distance for a little over 8 months.
He is the sweetest man I have ever come across, and the relationship was very casual.
After graduation, I decided to move to the big city that he lived in.
We talked about the decision for months and all the possible concerns that we had.
