Something else to think about. You say she doesn't want to sit, snuggle or sleep with you. What does the daily interaction between the two of you consist of? Are you working with her daily on basic obedience, socialization and exercise? Is she actually avoiding all attempts at closeness or does she just reach a point where she says "enough" and walks away? Many dogs are more independent and are perfectly content to just be in the same room as their owners and have a good play or pet now and then, others seem to want to crawl into their owners skin they cling so close. Your pup is now past the puppy stage of needing constant reassurance and she could just be developing her own more independent personality.

Another thought. Did your boyfriend have more active interaction with her than you do? If that were the case it's also possible that she's missing the more active times too.

A well trained dog will make no attempt to share your lunch.

He'll just make you feel guilty while you're eating it.
