I am really busy this week. I need to study and currently in a LDR with my boyfriend. He is stressed and needs to work as well. He is now talking to me less. I am more than happy to give us both some space, since we need to concentrate working.
But will this make us more fonder towards each other or colder? I am scared that after turning off the Wi-Fi and possibly ignoring him for a week will potentially ruin our relationship. Once, he was busy for 2 weeks and we didn't talk. I never pressured him, but I nearly got over him in that 2 week period, whereas he said he could never get over me.
I think some space will indeed benefit your relationship, but make a good deal with each other when you will, no matter what, hear each other back :D That will avoid the feeling of "she's running away from me" :o
It all depends on the individual but distance generally doesn't make two people closer. It makes the time you spend together more meaningful yes and valuable, but you'll for the most part drift apart or stay the same.
Of communicating how you feel is vitally important display your feelings let each other know what you need/want.
for me, the 'fondness' will wear off after awhile. i need that closeness. i've never ever ever had distance with someone and gotten closer over time. we've either remained as we were or just drifted apart.
My husband is gone for a little over a month at a time and gets average of 6 days home time before he leaves again, working business hours while he is home. It is hard. The hardest thing I have done. Staying faithful is sometimes more of a challenge than I want it to be, not that I struggle with it, but I do feel slight urges and I know he does to. The main thing we have is always calling at least twice a day, when we wake up and before bed (whoever is up or down first). Sometimes it's less than a minute but it's still a reminder that we care. The other is the random acts of kindness. He might get flowers sent to my work or even have a pizza delivered randomly. Sometimes I order him room service or have a gift basket delivered if I know he will be in the same hotel for a week or more. This isn't an every day thing, not even every week. Maybe once or twice a month. I think what is important is making time for eachother the same way you would if there wasn't so much distance. Relationships take work, long distance especially
