Needs more time with girlfriend
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Male
I have been seeing my girlfriend for 2 years now, and I think things are gradually getting worse.
I feel like I'm totally attached, and can't go a day without seeing her. But she feels overwhelmed by always being with me, and it is now becoming a real problem.
I feel trapped, because I want to give her space, but I'm so stuck in the routine of being attached it is very hard to stop seeing her everyday. What should I do? How do I get unattached? I know I should get out there and do things with my friends, but it is so much easier said than done. Also, we had a great week last week and shared some special moments, but I have yet to see her in the past 7days. It's worrying me that she's busy all of a sudden.
What do I do?
If you have explained to her how important time spent together is to you, and she still won't see you for seven days, something is wrong. You need to figure out a compromise where you will see each other every three or four days. This is probably not enough for you, but probably more reasonable for her. She may simply need space right now. Don't be too demanding or this could backfire on you.
You have to develop your existing friends or make new ones. I know it's easier said that done, but you don't have many options.
