    Lately my boyfriend has been hella busy. We go to the same sixth form but we don’t really speak to each other unless it’s about the lesson we have together. We go on dates and speak to each other over the phone most nights. For the last week or so he hasn’t been able to speak over the phone or go on a date. We’ve been carrying on as normal in sixth form but I miss talking to him and hanging out with him just us two. I get that he’s busy but he’s always seems to have time to hang out with his friends. What should I do ?

    re'ignite the relationship, maybe he's become bored of the same thing always. Try do new things and give him a reason to want to spend time with you. Even if he's your bf, you still have to always give him a reason. Plus you're in sixth form, that's a busy time, it happens to all relationship as you get older so dw about it.

    Talk to him- tell him how you feel. If he really cares about you, he'll make time for you. But don't worry too much if he's only been really busy for a week or so- it's likely that it's just a one-off and he'll be back to quality time with you soon. In the meantime, find something fun to do and keep busy yourself!

    Have you told him this is how you feel?

    He’s been busy becuase he’s joined a new running club and goes 3 times a week so I think it will be like this for a while but I’ve tried like I keep asking him to do things when he isn’t at running but he always says he has plans with his friends or something.

    Communication is very important in a relationship, so many people forget this. If you don't tell him how you feel, he won't know how to behave to make you happy.

    I don’t know how to phrase it though becuase all of his free time he spends with his friends that I don’t know but I can’t exactly tell him that I feel like he spends too much time with his friends becuase he has the right to see his friends when he wants.

    You don't have to bring up his friends.

    You say "boyfriend, I feel that we're not spending that much time together lately. Can we meet/talk more often as I enjoy meeting with you?" He might get the hint.

    Say that you're equally important than his running club, and can he cut it to 2 a week rather than 3 so you get more time with him?
