    So me and my boyfriend have been in a relationship for about 4 months (not that long). We've known each other for a year and a half since we met on Omegle. He's the only person I can actually see myself with, to me he's perfect. Of course the only catch was that we don't live in the same state. I was ok with though to be honest, cause I believed one way or another we would be able to work it out. And we did with the help of texting, Skype, FaceTime, Snapchat and other social media. Lately though (5 days now), he hasn't been texting me. We're both in college and we knew it would be difficult to communicate once the Fall term started, but it was completely fine the first two months. Texting has been the only thing he's been able to do. I figured he's just been busy (he's very involved when it comes to school). However, I saw that he's been posting stuff on Twitter now and then. Also, if I send a Snapchat to him he'll open it and not respond. I know this might sound paranoid, but I'm only concerned. If he has the time to use twitter, why not send a simple text saying hello and that he's ok.

    Okay - I know exactly whats going through your head right now. Why isn't he talking to me? Is he losing interest? Omg, what'd I do? This can't be...please just talk to me! I'm sorry!

    This is an unfortunate side effect of this age where we are in CONSTANT communication with each other. Nothing is ever new and there isn't anything ever to share when people do talk and thus conversations and relationships die much quicker. Learn to detach yourself from your phone and communication. Be comfortable with the quiet.

    That said, I wouldn't be waiting around for 5 days. I'd send him one and ask him where's he's been and by that I mean pick up the damn phone and talk to him. LDR it's more important to keep the lines of communication open and free. It's tough. And eventually, one of you will have to give in and move closer. It can't go on for more then a year.

    how did u meet someone on omegle? I just checked it out of curiosity and can't think of a worse way to spend time than being randomly paired with strangers to chat with, and having to hit the "new chat" button every 10 seconds lolol

    Sorry OP but don't be surprised if he's met someone else.

    woodsmen saidUnless you guys started out together in a locale and then have a long-distance relationship. It is probably not going to work.

    Mr. Obvious says what is obvious.
