• 'She resents the amount of time I spend at work'

    My girlfriend wants me to spend more time with her, which isn't possible, because my commitments at work prevent me from doing this. She thinks I am avoiding her, which is childish. How do I convince her?
    How old is your girlfriend? I ask because this doesn't sound like something an adult would have a problem with. Try and find a compromise. Take a day off every month and spend it exclusively with her.

    This is not really a problem, but I wanted to ask what you think is the best way for a couple to build a stronger relationship. I ask because I have been dating the same person for two years now, and nothing seems to have changed dramatically in the way we are. We still hang out the same way, have conversations about the same things, go on holidays once every six months, meet friends, and have a good time every weekend. I keep thinking there must be something more meaningful though, something we are both missing. Am I reading too much into this? Should I stop trying to make things better if they are already pretty good?
    You're right; it doesn't sound as if you have a problem. I'm not sure what it is you want out of this relationship. You have a companion you are clearly in love with, who clearly reciprocates those feelings. You have a good time when you are together. You have been together for a while now, and are clearly happy enough to not change that. You may actually have found someone special and are over-thinking it because you're looking for something based on what you think other couples have. Does your partner feel the same way too? If nothing has changed, do you think it will if the two of you decide to take this to the next level? Talk about it and see if you both feel the same way. It sounds as if things are just fine for now.
