I’ve been dating this girl for about 6 months. Known her for a while, and we dated briefly back in college. She’s recently divorced, so I know that changes all the rules. We started out strong, great relationship, very affectionate, talked all the time but still had personal lives. Recently, it’s been confusing.
In the last month or so, I’ve only seen her in groups. No alone time, but she always invites me out with them.
She doesn’t text first anymore, but she generally responds pretty quick. I didn’t text her at all for a week, didn’t hear a word until I finally cracked.
She’s not affectionate in public/groups, but in the few minutes saying goodbye she’s extremely affectionate.
She’s recently apologized for being flaky on alone time and that we haven’t been intimate (We haven’t had sex in almost 2 months), so she’s acknowledged both issues but nothing has changed.
Seems like I’ve become her Plan B depending on what else comes up, but I’m always invited out with the groups. We both lead very busy lives, but zero time alone seems excessive.
I’ve asked if everything’s good a couple times and she keeps saying there’s nothing to worry about. I’m sure she’s reclaiming her independence after the divorce, but where does that leave me? Should I just back off and wait to hear from her, see if that changes anything?
