This all went on for a couple of months, until summer ended and he started a new year of uni (we don't go to the same uni). First I noticed that he started to chat less everyday, and I tolerated it, thinking that it's just a phase and he's just really busy right now. We met up a few times, but that was it. But now it has actually been two months since we started to chat less (we only talk once a week/every 2 weeks now), and a little over a month since we met up.. I've just been so quiet about this, but I'm slowly exploding.
We live in the same city, but he can't seem to make time for me because he's so busy with university (he's a dentistry student). I totally understand that dentistry is hard, and I want him to prioritise uni and his studies of course, but not to the extent where he puts literally zero effort. I've talked to him about it several times.. still no progress. I told him if he doesn't want this then he should also tell me, but he said that he did want his and it is hard to balance between me and uni. Last week I asked him out, he said he can't, so I said that I'm not asking him out again or starting any convos and he apologised, but hasn't said anything ever since. He has midterms now but can't he just give me a minute of his day? I don't know what to do. I can't lose him, I hate to be stressful to him but I want to make this work.

these professions ask a lot of those who dedicate their lives to them. Sadly this also includes their love life. So ask him if he would be willing to set a certain day aside just for you. If not leave him. I am in medicine and I go through women like tic tacs, because the schooling is a reflection of the lifestyle. It consumes your entire life "Vita brevis est, et ars longus est." It means the life is short and the skill/art is long! There's a reason hypocrites said this... It's the terrible part about our profession those we love the most are always going to be second to our patients and profession...
