My boyfriend and I have been living together for a couple of months now. That continues to be an adjustment. When he gets stressed he retreats emotionally for a while. He does eventually come back though. He will talk about things when he's ready. He's really busy with his studies which I understand and respect that he needs to focus a lot on that. We don't always have as much fun together that we should. There are things we can do that don't cost money since our finances aren't the best. He sleeps a lot more when he's distant. I've heard that a lot of men are like that when it comes to stress. I talk to people online and his sister once in a while. Besides that I don't really have many others to talk to outside the relationship. All I can do I guess is to be there for him and to support him. It's just hard when he shuts me out. I feel like I can't reach him. Like he's hurting and there's nothing I can do to change it. How do you deal when he is emotionally distant?
