4leafclover Posted August 23, 2011 Share Posted August 23, 2011 Greetings, My girlfriend of almost 3 years (November 4th) have been struggling at the beginning of a long distance relationship. Until a few weeks ago we have spent all of our time together and we have slept in the same bed for the past two years every night. I recently moved to the East cost for graduate school and she is still finishing up school in the Midwest (3 more semesters). My masters program takes 2 years (4 semesters) and we are struggling getting used to the idea of being apart. I have told her that I am willing to do whatever it takes to make the relationship work and I have tried to figure out what the relationship will look like over the next few years. This has overwhelmed her so I've decided to give her sometime but the fear of the unknown is the scariest thing in the world for me. I'm severely homesick and having a hard time adjusting to this new chapter of my life. We are each others best friends and we love each other very much. At times I feel extremely optimistic that this could work. Other times I just can't imagine it working out. I want more than anything to keep the relationship going but sometimes I'm not sure if she feels the same way. I understand that in order for this to work we both need to have the same level of trust and honesty with each other. She seems slightly more distant lately but says that she wants to "try out" the long distance relationship. The uncertainty of everything has me going nearly mad and I can't concentrate on anything else but our relationship. It is a very special relationship and the past three years have been almost 100% problem free. Has anyone been in a similar situation or have any advice?
