Uni relationships during the holidays. watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have just finished my second year of uni and my boyfriend who I have been with for just over a year and a half is usually great, caring etc but when we aren't together in the same place he just doesn't seem to want to know.
    We never usually have this problem at uni as we live very close to each other as see each other pretty much every day, but during the holidays its a real problem and we hardly ever see each other. I try to go to his when I can but I can't just invite myself over all the time. If I ask him about it he assures me he will come over at some vague time in the future... next week, as soon as hes finished x etc and it gets to the point where I just seem to be nagging. Its made even worse by the fact we don't speak on the phone at all. I know this is a typical guy thing but when I call for no reason other than to chat he doesn't seem to like it which is frustrating. If we aren't going to see each other we could at least have some other form of contact but it just seems like too much bother for him.

    Other posts similar to this have got a 'don't be clingy' reaction but I don't think its clingy to expect to see each other more than once every month or so. Its the same over easter, xmas etc which I can cope with but the summer hols are an awfully long time for this to carry on. Its not even as if we live far from each other (about 40mins drive). I really don't know how to approach this without continuing to seem like I'm just nagging.... am I being unreasonable?
