I met my current boyfriend 6 months ago in the beginning of the summer. We exchanged numbers. I found out he goes to school 5 hours away! but since we had just started talking i didn't think much of it because we were just casually dating. Well one thing led to another and we fell for each other during the summer. We hung out everyday, went on amazing dates and before you know it we were inseparable. Before he left he expressed his concerns on us dating long distance and i also had concerns since my last relationship was long distance and it ended really badly (i was cheated on). But he said he'd come down for Thanksgiving which he did and would be back on Christmas break (he'll be back this week) and that he'd come down on all of his breaks. So it seemed to be going well the first month he was gone. But then i started noticing he didn't message me as much. And we don't talk or Skype just text since we both have busy schedules so i don't mind him texting me. But before he'd text me all day. Then he changed to a couple of times a day which i didn't mind since we were both busy. He'd send me pics of him or what he had to eat or even funny things he had seen throughout his day. And then he just started textingme once a day just late at night then it changed to him texting me every other day. And now he's taking 2 maybe 3 days to reply. It makes me kinda sad because i can't even get a simple goodnight or good morning text from my own boyfriend. And sometimes i worry something has happened to him and then he just replies days later as if nothing has happened asking me how I've been. I feel like he's losing interest or doesn't care. I've tried talking to him about it and his excuse is he's simply busy. but he was never that busy before where he couldnt even send me one text and then i see him liking things on instagram. what should i do? should i break it off?

Confront him, ask him if it is that much of a burden to send a good night, good morning text message. Is it that hard to spend 5 minutes typing a text for you? If he can't compromise then the relationship is just not worth that much to him. Long distance relationship requires a decent amount of communication, some sacrifices are to be expected from both sides, constant effort is necessary.2
