hurricanetortilla Posted January 29 Share Posted January 29 i have been dating my current partner for less than a year, but it’s the longest relationship i’ve had to date. i met them online and decided to study abroad in their city for several reasons, but mostly to be with them. however, despite us living closer than ever, i feel more distanced from them than ever. i learned a lot of things about them after i’d already committed to study abroad and arrived in the u.k. (their home country), some of which would have made me hesitant to come if i had learned of earlier. most of them aren’t that big of a deal, but sometimes it feels like they’re really adding up. i’ve also been feeling pretty lonely and depressed recently since i’m away from my family and most of my friends. i have made friends here, but i still feel very lonely, especially since my partner and i aren’t able to hang out much because of their mental health and family situation. i feel like *** for getting upset about it, since they are legitimately trying and i feel needy trying to get their attention so i just let myself be lonely. i love them very much, but sometimes i wonder if it would be better for us both if we broke up. i still have several months left here before going back home and i hate spending it being sad. the few times i’ve brought up that i want to see them more often have been met with defensiveness. i don’t know what to do. i love them but i feel trapped. on the other hand, the thought of them no longer being in my life makes me incredibly sad. how do i always manage to get myself into these sort of situations?
