Dating : Asking too much?
I’m in this sort of long distance relationship with a guy, right now our only form of communication is over WhatsApp because he deleted his Facebook a few months ago.
We don’t call or video chat, just message. I have an iPhone so it tells me how much time I spend on the app daily, weekly, etc. And lately it’s only been less than 20 minutes a day. I feel like this isn’t enough communication for a relationship to work out. I want more time with him. He works full time and has his kid over sometimes, but even on his days off he will not respond to messages for 12+ hours at a time.
I mentioned to him that I’m feeling neglected and would like more attention from him, but it’s like he doesn’t care and just tells me he’s emotionally drained. I’m not trying to make his life more difficult by just asking for attention, but I feel I deserve at least a bit of undivided attention..
Am I asking too much? Should I just drop it and accept my measly 20 random minutes a day of communication? (Never consecutive, this is 20 minutes total over the course of a day, a message here and a message there)
Or is this grounds for breaking it off?
If you have any questions feel free to ask. I tried not to include too much irrelevant info.
