Is Boyfriend Sick of Me?

Group Therapy: Is He Sick of Me?

This question comes from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I am a very driven person and in a very strange period in my life. It's one of those transitions that is testing everything I thought I knew. I graduated from medical school about a year ago and have been studying for my boards and now am going to try to get a residency. I came back home, leaving my friends and my independence, which has really been hard for me.

I met my boyfriend around that time, so he met me while I was just coming home, and starting to slow things down to undertake the process of adjusting to my new life and commit to studying. But my life has been so stagnat. I do have things to do, but I am at home most of the time, studying, barely have any real friends so I don't really go out at all unless it's with him. He is great, I can't say one bad thing about him, we are very serious about each other and things have been on a straight path since day one.

I am starting to feel like because of my lack of things to occupy my time with, aside from just studying, I find myself boring, and sometimes bitter for the lack of stimulation. I don't mean to be, but I honestly don't have anything else to do. Lately, I feel like he is just going through the motion of things, but that I don't really excite him. And I can't really blame him. I can't get a job, until my residency comes through, and I don't really have the time to do much else.

How do I know if he is sick of me, and what could I do to help this. We have been together for a year, I don't call him during the day or anything like that, but there is nothing I contribute to the relationship that doesn't change from day to day.

Any insight would help, thanks!
