How to Reconnect With Boyfriend

Group Therapy: How Do I Reconnect With My Boyfriend?

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

I know that it must seem like a silly question, but those of you that have been in long relationships know that after a while, you start to lose sense of one another. My boyfriend and I have been together for 2 years. For the past year, things have not been the greatest.

I had a miscarriage and an abortion (because I was having an ectopic pregnancy), and we found out that we both cheated in the very beginning of our relationship. I must say that it is a miracle that we are still together after everything that we went through. After that entire ordeal, I feel as if we are no longer friends, and that I don't know him anymore. I love him, and I want to be with him, so how do I rekindle our relationship, friendship, and romance before everything completely dies?

Whenever we're together, there is a hesitance, as if we're sitting in a car with a complete stranger. We used to not be this way, and I refuse to have this continue. I want my loving and happy relationship back. I want to be best friends with my boyfriend. I want to feel in love again. Obviously we're still together because we think there is hope, so what can I do to help us progress?

Thank you for listening.
