I first found out my boyfriend had depression before we were dating when he wouldn’t talk to me for a week, then ended up crying to me about his depression. He has been fine since then or so I thought. A little over two weeks ago he started ignoring me out of no where. We are long distance so by ignoring I mean not answering my texts or calls. At first I was kind of freaking out and might have text him some things that might’ve pushed him away because I had no idea he was depressed. As far as I knew he was just ignoring me to ignore me. I had to call him from my mom’s phone in order for him to answer. He told me “I’m sorry I just don’t want to talk to anyone” and “I told you I get like this.” Since talking to him I have been very supportive. Texting him once a day or so telling him I hope he has a nice day or that I miss him or something like that just so he knows I’m there. He still goes on social media so I know he sees my texts and I still get nothing back from him. Coming up on it being three weeks since he has contacted me and I am becoming more and more worried. I move back to college in 3 days and instead of being a 2 hour drive from him I will now be 7 hours away. I know this probably doesn’t help whatever he’s going through and it makes it hard for me knowing I can’t be here for him incase he needs me. He just recently started therapy and I know his parents want to get him on medication but since I haven’t talked to him I don’t know if that has happened yet. I want to give him his space but I also don’t want him to think I’ve given up on him and our relationship. I know I probably just have to wait for him to come around but I fear he won’t I guess. Is there anything I could do so that he will talk to me? Or anything I could say to help him?
