Well280 Posted March 21, 2018 Share Posted March 21, 2018 First of all, thank you to anyone who reads my post and takes the time to consider the problem. I think my girlfriend may be pushing me away due to stress. Just as a note, we’ve been a couple for about 18 months. Currently, we’re apart due to our work schedule. I know she is under huge pressure at the moment, it’s probably the most busy time of the year for her and I should imagine she is overwhelmed. The matter of concern is that I haven’t heard from her in over a week. I have sent the odd message now and then, which she reads but doesn’t reply to. I will be very honest: this worried me deeply to begin with, because the ceasing of communication was sudden and without warning. I entertained lots of scary ideas - I’m not too embarrassed to admit that unfaithfulness crossed my mind. I think it’s undeniable she is under a lot of pressure and for some reason I’m being shut out, or at least I’m not on her mind. Last year I was with her during one of these periods and she actually broke up with me, only later to return and apologise. Could she be worried about doing the same thing again if she lets me too close right now? I want to be supportive and I don’t want to make this situation worse. I love her dearly, and yet this being shut out is painful. I don’t want to bombard her with messages, but I hope she knows I’m there for her. Can anyone help? Should I just let her be? And more broadly, is this kind of thing common among people under stress? Or do I in fact have good cause to worry about the state of our relationship? Thank you. Link to comment
