    Long Distance problem

    We have lived together for a long time. We are emigrating so she has moved back to her home country to set things up for me to join her. Things are deteriorating fast and I think I am the only one trying to fix things. All I want is for us to communicate a bit more, and for her stop treating me like I am one giant inconvenience. All I am asking for is the odd message to say hi, as we only get to talk at the weekends and she has nothing to say. When I try to lighten the mood or joke around she doesn’t respond. She assured me she still loves me and wants to be with me, but she acts the complete opposite. I am feeling so lonely. If I try to do anything nice for her she either doesn’t respond or tells me she feels bad because she didn’t do anything for me. She doesn’t like romance – it embarrases her. She said if I left she wouldn’t try to stop me. I don’t know how to make this work if I am the only one trying. Long distance relationships need effort to succeed. What can I do? I love her.

    I once had a long distance relationship after we graduated. She were working at her home state and I was at mine. Although I tried my best to keep communicating with her as much as I can, but she drifted away. I guessed if you had tried everything but she doesn’t make any effort on her side, you should learn to let go because a relationship needs two hands to clap to make a sound.

    You can’t do anything to change her feelings for you.

    Read that a few times.

    All you can do is take care of yourself. Focus on yourself. Do for yourself the things you want to do for her. Connect with friends, get your mind off of it. Give the relationship a rest.

    I was there. I have friends that say it’s manageable. But I like physical contact too much. Lol
