Hey there, thanks for reaching out to us!
It sounds like you’re going through a bit of a tough time with your relationship, and that can be really confusing. Firstly, we want to say that it’s completely normal to feel unsure or distant in a relationship sometimes.
It might be helpful to reflect on why you’re feeling this way. Are there specific things about the relationship or your boyfriend’s behaviour that are causing you to distance yourself? It could be helpful to talk to your boyfriend about how you’re feeling and see if you can work through any issues together. 
Communication is key in any relationship, and being honest about your feelings can help strengthen your bond. However, if you’re finding it difficult to talk to your boyfriend or if you’re feeling overwhelmed, it’s important to remember that you’re never alone. This article may be helpful
