Original Visitor's Question from a 31-40 year old Female
I have a boyfriend who I have been with altogether about 2 years. We are so close and we only live 2 stop signs away from eachother, so you can just imagine that we do everything together.
My problem is that we are both from different religons and I know that we are never going to get married. In the fall we are going to be going to different colleges. His will be about 45min away from me. In a way I think we should break up now because in the summer it will harder but then at the same time I can't let go. What do you think I shuld do?
Also, once he moves I'm hardly going to see him becauser I'm going to college full-time and working full-time right now and it's so hard to have a social life. I think the only reason why we are so close now is because we both go to the same college together and since we live so close to each other we acctually have time to see each other.When he moves I won't have time to drive 45min. everyday.HELP!

45 min no problem
you talk about 45 minuets like its two worlds away. its really not that far. and not to mention if it really is love then you will make time for eachother. If time isn't made then you know it just wasn't meant to be and the pull to see eachother isn't that strong. when I was in school I had a boyfriend who lived two hours away and we seen eachother every night while I went to school full time with a job and he worked 60 hours a week. neither of us even worreid about the drive because we knew it would be worth it. I don't understand why you would even want to break up with him right now, before you even know if the distance is going to be a problem or not. my advice is if you wouldn't drive a pitly 45 min to go see him then you shouldn't have been spending so much time with him in the past two years. it sounds to me it was just a realtionship of convenience. IF not then 45 min should be nothing.
