gudzippo Posted March 13, 2019 Share Posted March 13, 2019 Hi All, I'm new here so first post! I've been with my GF for 8 months, I'm 24 and she is 23. We met in London and she lived here for before moving back home to Edinburgh. We've now been doing a long distance relationship for 4 months. We see each-other at least once a month. I'm the anxious attachment style partner and I would say she is the avoident style. I'm the more lovey dovey, soppy like cute texts kind of guy ... she isn't. Anyway! We have pet names for each other as most relationships do, from time to time we'd call each other "babe" "hun" "darling" "angle" etc.. you get the idea. Especially in the morning with morning texts it would be "Good morning babe!" followed by a bit more text in for example.. However 3 days in a row now shes simply just put "Good morning" (still followed with some more stuff) instead and its REALLY bothered me... even throughout the day she never says anything pet name wise at all now... I know it sounds petty but its making me feel incredibly anxious? I still have been saying such names but thinking to just stop all together, its making me feel resentful? As trivial as it sounds, this is a way for me to feel love/affection from her as of course I can't have the comforts of seeing her physically... I dont understand why it's changed all of a sudden? As far as i'm aware the relationship is generally speaking OK? I'd really appreciate some advice on how I can tackle this or even bring it up? I'm worried coming across as needy and pathetic. Lastly, I also get super anxious when she hasn't responded quickly? I know everyone is busy and has other things to do rather than stare at their phones... but it just seems shes not as into our conversations as I am.. I'm always the one having to keep the conversation going usually. Other than the above she hasn't really given any obvious signs of disinterest and what not.. when I last saw her a week ago she told me how much she loved me etc.. I'm so confused!! Am I overthinking everything? :( Link to comment
