If you have been in a long term relationship, you realize how difficult it can be to recognize and deal with the struggles. If each person in a relationship wishes to know how to fix things between them, they should take the time to understand what is going wrong. If this is you, you will be required to work at it to completely understand your partner so you can have a positive relationship. Many women would like to know why their boyfriend is acting the way he is. If they spent some time paying attention and understanding what is going on they would see the reasons why. There are four questions you can ask yourself to better understand why your boyfriend may be acting the way he is. Asking these questions of yourself may show why or they may show you are worrying about nothing. Is could be possible he is dealing with stress in his life? Think of the things he may be dealing with now. Is his job stressing him out or maybe his college classes are getting the best of him. Being in a stressful state could be making him act different towards you, when these times pass he may well be back to his normal self. How have you been acting towards him? If you have been treating him different than normal he may be acting the way he is due to your actions. Maybe you have problems you are dealing with and it’s making you act different or weird to him. Did you forget an important event in his life? Forgetting dates is common, it happens to all of us. Think back a couple months to see if you remember anything that was important to him that you could have missed. He may be acting odd to you because he thinks you do not care enough to remember an event that was important to him. Have you taken the time to talk about why he is acting the way he is? If you ask him, he may just tell you what is wrong. He may also tell you he does not mean to be this way with you and there is really nothing wrong with you. Taking the time to just discuss it is very important. Having good communication is one of the important keys in any relationship. If everyone holds their feelings and concerns to themselves, you can never work out your problems.
