    Can you have a good relationship / can a relationship progress if you only ever met on weekends?

    I feel like I'm currently in this situation so I'm worried about the future of my relationship. I was happy in a while and my boyfriend used to see me on weekdays too so I don't understand why that has changed. I feel like he is perfect in every way except for this and it's starting to bother me more than it used to. I don't want to break up with him because of this and I've already spoken to him about it. We do seem to text everyday though and it's nearly always him who initiates. I was just wondering if anyone could share any positive experiences to encourage me...

    Thanks

    Yes, to put it simply. I saw a similar thread the other day a lot of people see their boyfriend/girlfriend fortnightly or monthly and it seems to work fine

    I was in a relationship once, with this beautiful city lawyer. I didn't see her very often, and I even had competition from this douchebag who was a lot richer and more influential than I was. I still got her to accept my marriage proposal, albeit not in ideal circumstances.

    Too bad she exploded.

    Me and my boyfriend will have been together for four years this October and apart from school holidays (although now I have finished my A2s I'm getting a lot more time to see him, and we will be at the same Uni in Sept, he's already in his first year so) we would really only see each other on weekends, minus the odd cinema date on a wednesday every few months. It makes you appreciate the time you spend together a lot more. We talked and still do everyday, there will be a time where you get to spend more time together I should imagine. We are both absolutely still crazy about each other, you just look forward to seeing each other more and stuff. Obviously now we like it that we get to see each other other than the weekends, but it is doable.

    Yes you can, but you're not making the effort. Why do you always leave it up to him to initiate the conversation? Now that it's school/university holidays, surely you can see him a lot more this summer?
