A friend of mine is concerned that her boyfriend of a couple months is losing interest in her. For the first month, he took her out 5 times a week! For the second month, he's been taking her out only once a week. She's concerned about it but I didn't know that would be a bad sign - doesn't that just mean he is busy? Why does she think he has to spend every moment with her anyway?

I think the relationship is just becoming more comfortable. He may have also been feeling smothered going out with her so much (even if he wanted to at the time), and is stepping back a bit to feel more independent. This happened to me with my ex once, we were spending a lot of time together, and I was beginning to feel too attached. I was worried I'd lose myself, lose my friends, etc etc. So I asked to back off just a little bit. It wasn't that my feelings had changed, it was just my own worries.
If she handles his distance well and doesn't pressure him, it'll naturally go back to the way it was I think. Whether he's losing interest or just needs some space, pushing him will make it go sour. The only thing she can do is relax about it.2
