Your boyfriend is feeling overwhelmed with his work schedule. The best thing for you to do would be to tell him that you understand how busy he is and will support him from a distance. Perhaps send him a couple text messages that are loving and supportive but expect nothing in return. Right now, you do not want to be a third thing to add to his already stressed out situation. Out of self-preservation, he may push you further away if he feels that the relationship is taking too much time to maintain and keep you happy. If he goes out with friends, do not make a big deal out of it. Instead, see if you can arrange some time with him alone a couple of times a week but be flexible in your schedule with him.

How can I save my love life? Please Suggest?

I am committed since last 5 years. We are very good friends also. But for some time, we both do not give proper time to each other and started fighting. Both of us are working in the technical field. I don't understand how can I save my relationship. He is very caring but according to work and pressure he can not show any kind of care and he is ignoring me sometimes. So please suggest me how can I get him back .. I have tried: I want to make him happy always, but I know sometimes my ways are not right as per him.. I think it was caused by: Busy Schedule or long time relationship

You need to suggest a relationship reset. Explain to him how performing a hard reset on a mobile device often resolves issues with the operating system. Your relationship reset would be to spend a weekend together with no arguments or even criticisms of each other. Make it a stress free relationship zone for 48 hours. Before you spend this time together, you will want to make a list of mutual activities that you both enjoy. Make a rule that you have to say something positive to each other a minimum of three times a day even if that is just through SMS.

Hi I just met up with my ex of 10 years ago and decided to get together again as both of us are divorced?

So now I don't know how to go about it as the last time we broke up he listened to his friends telling lies about me that I have slept with them which was not true and I feel he still doesn't trust me. How do I make him trust me and love me again as he invited me to spend the weekend with him. I have tried: Nothing much though I wanted him but lost contact for more than 10 years. I think it was caused by: His friends as they wanted me and they lied about sleeping with me and he just disappeared

In that 10 years, you and he have both matured. Just be yourself around him. Understand though that many couples do not get back together after a bitter breakup because the resentment and the past are always around the corner of our thoughts. Even you right now are worried about events from 10 years ago. He invited you to spend the weekend with him so leave the past behind. If he brings up why you broke up previously, offer that you and he need closure for any hope of a relationship now. Do not make excuses for yourself. Just explain that things were said, the relationship ended but you wish to focus on the current situation. If he still has these friends, you will want to avoid them at all cost. It is pretty harsh for a "friend" to make false statements such as I slept with your girlfriend. These people were not really his friends for them to do that. They were just trying to break up his happiness which is extremely spiteful and immature. The difference from 10 years ago, is that now you both have matured and can hopefully have a successful relationship.
