  • I send him an e-mail.
  • I'd think he's coping me.
  • It depends. I either try to communicate directly about it, or I decide to go on about my business and focus on what I want to do with my newly-found free time :) Sometimes I start on one path, and then switch, and then switch back again. This keeps things interesting.
  • I write I love you on a post it note and leave it somewhere he will find it.
  • I find something to do.
  • Talk to him about it.
  • Giver her her space and then wait for her to approach me + 5
  • Ask him what is wrong and don't take nothing for an answer. I've been with him long enough to know that when he is being distant, he is usually upset or worried about something. Sometimes its something I've done and I need to make amends. That is rare. More often, financial worries have gotten on top of him and he needs to be reassured and encouraged. We've been through a lot together, and we've learned that we need to watch one another's moods and encourage one another before we get so low that we can't get back up again. If I catch his discouragment early and nip it in the bud, it usually doesn't last more than a few hours, but if I let it go, he'll be down for a while. Most of the time, talking it out is all it takes to get him back on an even keel.
  • i first ask if we need to talk.. if i am told all is ok then later on i put on something sexy and try to take their mind off of whatever is bothering them.
  • Try to talk. You can't fix the problem if you don't know what is wrong. You never know what could be brewing in their heads so it's best to get to the bottom of it before their thoughts run too wild.
  • We actually discussed this prior to either of us having one of these moments. We wanted to make sure what the preferred reaction should be. Personally I prefer to just be left alone. I sometimes get like this for a few days maybe once every 2-3 months. It's never anything personal or ever really has a cause. Just sometimes I need to be alone for a while and do my own thing.
  • I literally addressed this question in an answer to a previous question along those lines. Check it out: http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/1159651
  • Ask them what's wrong! If they're only a "significant other", my tolerance level would be VERY LOW!
  • How long? If it gets too long, I'd terminate.
  • I feel one day our relationship will grow to a place he will share more about his feelings.
