sadlert22 Posted July 30, 2017 Share Posted July 30, 2017 Hello, I'll start out with a little about our relationship. We began dating in September 2016 and spent nearly every day with each other besides when we were home visiting our families. She told me that she loved me in November 2016 and I told her that I couldn't tell her that until I knew for sure and she accepted it. I told her in December 2016 when I flew down to her families and stayed with them for a week. Oh, by the way, I am 22 and she is 19. We bought a dog together and we have planned out pretty much our entire life together. I took a trip with my family to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons and was unable to talk to her all day every day like I had been and when I came back from the trip...she asked for a break. She asked for a break because she wants to work on herself. She wants to be more independent. She doesn't like herself right now because of countless things. This was all told to me and more. We are both starting in new places, I am starting my first real job out of college and she is starting at a new college and still has 3 years left. It has now been almost 4 weeks since we have been on this break and I just recently took a trip down to where she is starting at a new college so that I could see her and our dog. We had a good time together and it made me miss being with her.....an unfathomable amount. When we were both leaving to go back to our respective homes, we hugged each other for about 5 minutes and she said I love you, kissed me on the cheek and I told her the same back and stared into her eyes. She then kissed me and it was the most meaningful kiss that I had with her in about 2 months. We both had tears in our eyes and said bye to each other multiple times before actually leaving. She told me that she would see me soon and then we left. She has promised me that she will come back to me after she accomplishes what she wants to do. I guess I am just looking for perspective on this one. Not really looking for certain advice because her and I have discussed pretty much everything that she wants with this space with regards to speaking to each other. Any perspective would be great!
