Dating long distance in college

01-Oct-2019 04:47

I agreed to date even though, by the time we were actually getting together, it would be long distance.

If I had a better sense of relationships then, I would have understood that the early days of a relationship set the tone for what's to come.

If six years sounds like an overwhelmingly long amount of time to be apart, then join the club.

Only being able to see my boyfriend every other month for a few days or week at a time would never be enough for me.

We didn't have trust early on, what with him dumping me every few weeks or even days.

Of course I didn't trust him not to break it off because I was gone. If my boyfriend didn't text me back right away, I assumed that it was over.

Maybe this was someone who actually wanted to be with me. If I seem bitter now, it's because I wasn't angry enough then.It turned out that he was way more confused than he had initially pretended to be, and was actually still hung up on his ex-girlfriend and using me as a rebound. I allowed him to continue in his wishy-washy behavior toward me for .When he dumped me before my graduation, I thought it was for good, so I made plans to move out of Pittsburgh and start anew.I should have known that the anxiety didn't have as much to do with distance as much as it had to do with him.Honestly, I don't know whether I would have stayed in New York if I hadn't been dating someone long distance.

If he met up with an ex he had dated in high school, I assumed he was cheating on me.
