First off, happy holidays to everyone! I haven't posted in awhile because of how busy I am. Anyways, I was lucky enough to get a boyfriend back in September who lived about 2 hours away from me. The distance wasn't really an issue but he's in his first year of college and he got a second job (seasonal) while I was dating him. Fast forward to November, he starts saying he feels like he's jumping boarders to make me happy and that its too much for him. He's super busy so I ask him to send me his schedules so I can see when I can talk to him or hang out with him. This caused a lot of pressure for him because sometimes he just wants time to himself, I didn't understand that until I guess I pushed it to far. He said he wanted some time alone and that I deserved more. It really disturbed me that he said that, even if I do deserve more I really loved our connection and I wasn't ready to throw that out the window. About a week later I texted him asking how he was and he replied "its only been a week, I said I needed time alone, Jesus." We never set ground rules or timeframes and I haven't spoken to him since November. I really want to contact him and ask if we can set some ground rules but he probably wont reply, or he might say something like "talking to me will only push me further away." If you think I should ask to set some rules give some examples of what to say. Thanks.
