How do we get closer? :l watch

    I've been with my boyfriend for almost 5 months, and so far it has been great. I've known him just under a year now. (were both 18 and this is our first proper relationship with anyone before).

    But recently we haven't seen each other for about 2 weeks now, and yesterday he asked me how close i thought we were (as a couple).

    I replied with: "we should probably see each other more and spend more time together" and he said he does want to do that.

    But its just not been the same recently. i'm quite a quiet person and find it hard to open up to people and i just CAN'T let this get in the way of the relationship.

    I love him lots and hope this will motivate me to be myself around him more.

    So what do you think we could do together to get closer/ get to know each other more? and what can i do to show him that i DO care about him?



    Agreed (mostly) with ratherchloe. Spend long periods of time with him (a weekend or more) and you'll find you get much closer If you're seeing each other only for an afternoon, an evening or even just one night at a time, it's a lot harder to develop a 'proper' relationship.

    spend more time together.
    dont keep any secrets,
    go to your partner when you're feeling crap and confide in them. (put yourself in a vulnerable position)

    Aw, it's nice that you're not running out of stuff, it basicalyl means that you're both just interesting and complex people :yep:
    It's far nicer to have all that mystery unravelling than to be with someone totally transparent I reckon :dontknow:
    Honestly, relax about it OP Just remember to tell him what you like about him, without using cliches, whenever you think it: eg., if his hair looks sexy one day, tell him!

    Get some string, and stitch your self to him :P.
