Waiting Out the Stress
Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
Hi-- I am madly in love with this guy and I know he was madly in love with me too. But now he is dealing with a really stressful situation -- majorly stressful to him and he hasn't been calling me at all.
Is he through with me - does he want me out of his life -- or does he just need some space? Should I contact him or should I stay in the background and wait for him to contact me?? I love him so much and the waiting is so hard. Thanks
One of the keys of any relationship is that you can talk about anything honestly, and that you are always there for each other. So I definitely wouldn't run and hide. I would stay in touch with him, let him know you're thinking of him. Offer to meet even for 1/2 hour for drinks, or for a few minutes for a back rub. Partners face problems together and overcome them together. He needs to trust you, that you can be a help to him. While whatever he's facing is stressful, undoubtedly there will be many more stresses in his life in the future. So if anything this is a "training stress" to teach him how to deal with them. He needs to learn that he shouldn't be facing issues alone, he should face them with his partner by his side.
