    My partner and I have been together for a few months now, not sure how many to be exact.. woops!

    But recently they have felt a bit distant whenever we talk, its a LDR as we go to different unis so most of our talking is over text or Facebook. My partner started to go to a lot of house parties and clubs recently, I've felt its all started since then. Whenever we do talk they seem.. distant? So replies dont seem to be as important as they once were and conversations struggle to flow like they use to. I understand that its exam time and that stress might be an issue, but I wanted some secondary opinions on this.

    Another thing which raised many alarms in my head was that they bailed out of sex at the last minute, which has never happened. I was completely fine not having it, I made sure I was sincere and caring at that point as I knew something was up. They said they were worried about how they felt that sex was the only thing driving their previous relationship, and that they didnt want it to happen to this one. Ofc that's not what I want, I'm not a complete d**k. I stupidly read up on google and a lot of replies suggested that your partner might be cheating or might have done something they regret which affects us.

    The only reason I've turned to here and not my partner is that I dont want to show how worried I am, plus it will insinuate a bit of distrust which I dont want them to know. (I'm a really severe worrier, I worry about everything).

    Whats everyone's take on this? Should I have reason to worry? Should I just confront them about this?

    Not a clue :dontknow:
