What can i do

My SO and I are going through a rough patch. and He is acting detached.

It will be as though he is bothered by my attempts to communicate. He will not call me. Unless I call him first. He will not text unless i call him first.

It has been two weeks since the incident and i am over it. and more tahn ready to move past it.

I had to ask him out to dinner, yes he came and it was nice seeing him again. but i expected him to bring up the issues we are having. He did not. It seemed like he wanted to, but he didn't. We had a pleasant time and he brought me home.

My question is how do i get him to reengage?

Also he invited me on a road trip. and i am looking forward to going. but how are we gonna spend hours in the car alone, when we are barely speaking?

  • Bring everything out in the open, or if you find it hard to talk, write him a letter and pour your heart out in it.

  • Lay it out there with him. Talk about the issue, clear the air. Let him know that you are past it, and ask him how he feels.

  • Men dont like talking or hearing about the same thing. I say go on road trip and enjoy each others company, move forward.
