- Wedding: November 2012
I posted earlier this week about the fact that my SO and I have hit a rough patch in our relationship, we had both admitted that he had started to get a bit lazy, both with treating me more like a girlfriend than a room mate. He was also getting lazy with his share of the housework and most irritatingly he had started going out more with work friends etc and had started cancelling our personal plans which quite rightly so upset me.
A couple of months of this kind of behaviour passed and about a zillion “chats” about how we could fix this, hadn’t improved anything so I felt that taking a break was the only chance we had to recharge, miss each other and move on from the funk.
It was an amicable solution and we still love each other vv much. The trouble is, its been a week now of literally no communication apart from one text from him yday saying “Love you” and I replied “love you too” …. Today has been harder for some reason. This break was meant to allow him *more than me, to see how much I mean to him and its just made me see how much he means to me!
There was no hard and fast rules set anout when we’d finish the break but I felt 2 weeks was approporate. Next Wednesday will be the 2 week mark. Weakness has come to me though and I messaged him an hour ago a just said “I miss you x” and I haven’t had a reply.
I know he might be busy etc but I really need to know right now that this break is giving him the time he needs to refocus on us but doubt has started to creep in and I’m suddently overwhelmed with the worry that he might turn round and say he wants to end it.
Bees, I need some works of comfort / advice. Has anyone else been on a break that helped their relationship?!
