Riley99 Posted July 30, 2008 Share Posted July 30, 2008 My boyfriend just started medical school and his behavior has been strange. Before he started, we discussed how much things would change because he is a very dedicated student and very ambitious and wants to do well. I want this too. I've told him too that I want his priority to be SCHOOL, not me. We are generally together all weekend long and practically joined at the hip. It's never "too much", we truly mutually enjoy every minute we spend together. We say how lucky we are to be together and are sad when the weekend ends. He says "see you ... when I see you, I guess". This is the 2nd week of school, but he does a 180 on me during the week! It's so strange. It feels so distant, like another person. I feel so neglected or as though he is going to break up with me at any moment. This can't be true, because we get along great and have a lot of fun, but these feelings of insecurity keep creeping in during the week! Of course I pretend that the "distance" during the week is perfectly fine because I'm so busy too and dont want to be the needy girlfriend. Is this just because he is so studious and had started school and wants to focus and devote all of his attention to school? Perhaps the school has scared him into thinking he needs to study 24/7? I am going crazy here! I don't want to overwhelm him or ask questions since he was clear that he wanted to focus on school. I just need assurance that there's nothing wrong. Am I overreacting or overly insecure? Link to comment
