I've been having some trouble with my boyfriend. The problem is that he doesn't seem eager to see me anymore. He almost never texts me, and it seems like I'm the one always setting up dates now and I'm the one asking to hang out. Oftentimes i text him or email him and he doesn't reply for several days. I get that most guys don't want to talk every second of the day, but I know he can do better. See, my little sister in 8th grade has boys all around he telling her she's beautiful and amazing and asking her out in all directions. I don't remember the last time my bf said anything romantic to me. Don't get me wrong--he is very nice to me. I love him and he says he loves me. I love being with him and he seems to enjoy spending time together too. It's just that he hardly puts any effort into seeing me anymore. I just want someone who makes me feel wanted (no reference to the song!). I don't know if I should end it or if I should just talk to him... Or both... And does anyone know if he does care and is this just a guy thing? Im 17 and he's 16, we've been dating for 1 1/2 years, if that means anything...
Talk and address the problem before ending the relationship. That way at least you gave him a chance. I don't think it's a guy thing, but I will say extracurricular things would definitely stop me from talking to anyone, including my girlfriend.
I secon Kenrichi's advice with this addition: If or when you do break up. I say this in all caps for emphasis: DO NOT GO BACK OUT WITH HIM!
Thanks for the advice, guys! I'll see what happends after we go out for Valentines day and probably talk to him...
