What feels like distance or the cold shoulder to you is really just him putting his energy and attention onto something else. Since then I have turned into someone I wish I wasn't I lost myself in out relationship. Let him live his own life and be what he's going to be; you do the same. So why did he just suddenly change? We all have down periods and we hope the partner understands, as there is no instant quick fix answer as its more like a work in process and I emphasize the work part. We even went on vacation together , but once we got back he began being distant again. A month later, Jane left Peter to be with this other man.
I feel as if moving to him gave him the power and maybe that is why he is being the way he is. But his language had changed he still didn't pepper the conversation with I love yous and pet names and when I asked him why he seems emotionally detached on text he got frustrated and said he thought everything was good and just because he does not say it does not mean that he doesn't feel the same way. He did not seem to care at all and has been acting really happy around the office. There is no reason for him to find another girl unless you have become complacent and beginning to take things for granted. My guess is he wants out of the relationship but doesn't want to hurt your feelings. He may also say that he feels nothing has changed. He keeps a necklace of mine and wears and sometimes keeps it with him also.

I know it's so hard when you want to believe it's different with a new guy! It was, of course, the worst thing I could have done in this situation.
What you're seeing is what he's comfortable with, with what works for him. When someone shows you who he is, believe him the first time. It is in this understanding we learn about our partners and devise ways to not only learn how to communicate and when best to communicate but also to listen. Because you asked for something for yourself, Koh. Or Does this lack of romance phase just a step towards building a stronger relationship?

When I caught him he said he'd work for us but the anger and mistrust led us to fail.
Well I went along my business and 3 days past, neither of us talking to each other. The biggest mistake you can make is not giving him the space to do this. Whenever I try to hold his hand or touch him he'll push my hand away and when I try to kiss him, he'd give me short little kisses and usually no kisses at all not like when we first started dating and everything was passionate. It's just I feel you have been behaving a bit strange. What will always help if shifting the focus off of him and onto you and your own life so that how attentive he is or isn't doesn't affect your own self-worth.
