I am in a long distance relationship and he is always busy. I feel we don't spend enough time together, am I overreacting?

Dear Torngirl,

Your feelings are your feelings and are valid. If you are feeling as if you want to have more time together in the relationship then that is what is right for you.

If it is, and your boyfriend chooses not do to this, this becomes a problem for the relationship, which needs to be addressed immediately.
