  • why dont you ask her? take her out to lunch or on a shopping trip or something and try and talk to her about it. dont give up on talking to her, you have to keep trying. thats probably what she really wants.

  • yup, she's feeling neglected by you. Schedule a day of fun just for the 2 of you, schedule time (your schedule, she shouldn't think of it as scheduling cuz then she's one more thing you have to do everyday) everyday to talk to her. When topics come up pay attention & talk, she's not always gonna ask/say things when its convienent for you.
