Here's the thing. We're both students at uni. We're both really busy and we live apart so our companionship consists of saying how each others' day went via text or email, grabbing a bite or swimming together during short school breaks and hanging out together for a few hours every Friday night, sometimes enjoying a date on top of that. I'm often sad that we don't share everything like a married couple does or like a couple does when sharing the same roof.
Today, my boyfriend had his very last team presentation in front of the client for his year-long, end of degree project course. It lasted all day long, big deal and all. He kept talking to me about it for weeks. It was important enough to him that he set things up so his father could attend the presentation. But he didn't text me to tell me how it went until 10h30 PM, even though I knew it ended at 5 and I spent the whole day sending him positive vibes because it was an important day. He didn't even answer my text asking how it went. He just wrote that he went back to school after the presentation (he could have texted me there, but he obviously didn't care for it), went to dinner with his team, and just came home. I feel like he'll tell his whole family about it, have the longest time to enjoy himself and celebrate, and that I'll be the last one he'll care to tell. I feel neglected and uncared for. I've supported him the whole way through. It's been a year that he's been part of this project. And now that he's done with it, he couldn't care less to update me about it. Do you understand? I feel like I'd be settling for less if I were to accept being treated like that until, maybe, we move in together and increase our companionship. How is that fair to me?
And the irony? I'm having my big "project day" today. And I'm the one crying myself to sleep. And he has the nerve to text me that "My vibes helped him 100%".

honestly, I understand that you feel all of your support for him went unappreciated, but give him a break. he was probably just super busy with his school mates and dad and didn't want to start a conversation with you until he had time to settle down and actually text you back and whatnot. I don't think you should be so upset with him. send him a simple text like "could really have used your support today too", if he didn't send you any nice texts in the morning before he got busy it's probably just because he was stressed out and because boys often don't THINK about doing things like that lol.
also don't rush the 'married couple' thing! you are going to have the rest of your lives for that if you two are meant to be together, just enjoy being a student while you still can0
