    I've been with my boyfriend for 5 months and we've known each for a year before that. At the start of the relationship he was wonderful and affectionate and I couldn't ask for anyone better. When we're together, we're like the best of friends and I'm never happier. But when we're apart, I rarely get a text or phonecall and usually end up feeling ignored and upset because he doesn't reply or call back. I feel like he's sending me mixed signals and I don't understand why he doesn't seem to want to talk to me when we're apart? We're both very busy so we only see each other maybe once a week. I'm going to uni in September and he says he hates the fact we'll be apart for weeks at a time, but then I feel like he doesn't put any effort in now? I feel like I'm getting mixed signals. He's told me he doesn't want to get too attached and then lose me when I go to uni so is he just scared? Help

    Way I see it, you're not texting or calling enough maybe.
    5 months in I'd say the relationship is still kind of new so before you go to Uni, make sure you get things straight with him if you do want to continue that relationship.

    I don't much about relationships but I do know that it would be best to act now before you go to Uni, where you may be so caught up in this that you are distracted from your studies.
