My Boyfriend Isn’t Making an Effort! What Should I Do? Q&A
Q So my university graduation is about two months and I had told and invited my partner about a month before the ceremony date, to give him enough time to take time off work. He only just asked his work to take the day off, in which he was denied, so he won’t be coming.
Am I thinking too much, did I not give him enough time or does he not seem to really care and leave things to the last minute as usual with everything?
Been with him for almost 2 years. He has uni and work, but in the last 6 months or so, we only really hang out once a week, or twice a week …at night for a couple of hours, never during the day and we do the same thing over and over again.
Im starting the question the relationship. Am I over thinking?
A I think a month is plenty of time to call off work, unless he has a high power job. That is such a bummer, but it sounds like your graduation wasn’t on the top of his priority list. You can tell him you feel bummed out and dissapointed that he can’t come.
It’s sounding like you’re in a rut, and nothing new or fun is happening, so it’s time to find some fun things to do without him. Get a date with girlfriend or have a pamper yourself night. Turn your ringer off, take a bubble bath and paint your toes. Take time for yourself or do something fun. When you fill your life with interesting things, your dating life will become more interesting. You can also tell him, you’d like to spice things up and ask him if he’s got any ideas!
