CookieMonster8 Posted February 21, 2012 Share Posted February 21, 2012 My boyfriend and I have been together a little over a year now. When he lived in the city I saw him at least 3-4 days a week and since he moved home in October I usually only see him on the weekends now. We try to spend entire weekends together but we also want to make time for our friends as well so right now we see each other at least 2 days a week for sure. Him and I took a week 5 day trip to Puerto Rico at the end of January and I brought up to him that something was weighing on my heart. I told him I feel like we aren't as close emotionally as I'd like to be by this point in our relationship. Our relationship has developed a lot slower than my previous serious relationships which I feel like makes me insecure sometimes. We have not ever talked about getting married or our future either and so my therapist thinks part of the reason I feel like a vacuum with my feelings is because we aren't really progressing. We have been at a standstill for awhile now. I just want to grow closer to him emotionally. I'm such an emotional person and driven by feelings where he is not as emotional or expressive of his feelings. I don't care if we don't talk about marriage for a bit but I feel like in the next few months I really have to figure out if this relationship is going somewhere or not. I'm almost 27 years old and am starting to feel like at this point in my life if a relationship isn't going anywhere or growing then I need to figure out if the relationship is best for me. I'm feeling really discouraged and confused lately. Has anyone else ever been in this situation before? Any advice or tips? Thanks in advance! Link to comment
