Like a couple not spending much time together. The only thing I could come out with is "we've been a little apart," though I'm not totally sure whether it is common or not.

Other suggestions?


You could say

"There seems to be an unusual distance between us."


"We seem to be drifting apart."


"We seem to be looking for excuses not to get together."


"Our times together seem to be few and far between lately." (Note: To be correct, to a ridiculous extreme, a better wording would be, "Our times together seem to be fewer and further between lately.")


"Our tête-à-tête are less frequent of late.
