I've been with my bf for over a year, longest I've ever been with someone. Well this year, he was busy finishing school, I graduated a bit before him(both in college) so we were only hanging out once every two weeks, then recently a whole month went by where we couldn't hang out(also, he lost his license, but should be getting it back soon, so that was also an issue), but ever since we met, we talk to each other every night, and still do.I finally saw him the other day, it was perfect, and I love spending time with him, I really love him. I just feel like, I'm not sure how things are now, am I going to see him next week or is he going to be busy? I'm afraid that since I hadn't seen him in so long, it's always going to be this way. I don't want to lose him, but I'm really confused on things. I even fell weird to ask him to hang out next week, like I feel like I'm being to needy. We used to hang out once a week, I don't know how things will go now. He's so sweet and I really love him, and even though we've never said it to each other, I'm sure he loves me. What should I do, do you think it's time to break it off?

It sounds like where you really need to start is with sitting down and really talking about this first. Even though sometimes it seems like the other person in a relationship should just know what we think and how we feel, people tend not to be great mind readers as a whole. So, the best was to deal with a problem one or both people are having in a relationship is to talk about them.

And know there's nothing wrong with asking to see someone more if you feel like you don't see them enough. It's likely since you haven't said anything, he really just doesn't know how you're feeling about it.
