GENUINE ADVICE NEEDED: boyfriend thoughts Watch

    I've been with my boyfriend for just over two years now and genuinely adore him. We've recently hit such a strong point and we're both so happy which is obviously great. He works full time at an engineering apprenticeship and I'm in my last year of sixth form doing A2

    We see each other maybe once or twice a week and I feel like it's only me who like 'misses' him...I HATE to sound clingy but it's just how I feel. Maybe if we texted/spoke/facetimed more it would be different but we don't really. I think I just wish we communicated more and still had that initial spark connection where you make the effort to talk more.

    In a nutshell I guess I just wish he gave me more attention. I know 100% he loves me and I am secure in our bond but as more of an extrovert I think I expect him to show me that love through the time we spend communicating whereas he thinks this it's just enough for me to know. Does this make sense? I want actions not words I guess.

    Do I ask for too much? And at such a young age of 18 too? He lives up the road and he drives so I'm literally two seconds away...it can't be that hard can it? I'm literally in two minds, I know that I should be chill and grateful but I just wish he had more of an urge to see me and talk to me

    Am I really overthinking this?

    As a huge over thinker myself, I get where you are coming from!
    BUT It usually takes guys longer to get to the point where you are at (in my experience)
    Just give it time
