    Mutual Breakup but we still wanna be friends

    Where do I start here….. Okay so I’m 20 she’s 18. We met on tinder oddly enough back in February. We talked for awhile hit it off great eventually met and it continued to get better and better. We’ve been now dating the last five months. The relationship has been going great we get along no fights not drama. I’m going into my third year of college and I commute and still live at home. Whereas she is going into her first year and is going away to a school 2 hours. We recently had the talk about where we stood in regards to our relationship. Together we came to the notion that long distance isn’t healthy nor would it work for us long term. In addition, we both agree we would love to stay good friends. She leaves next Saturday. I’m really struggling with this whole thing I’m still in love with her and I’m having a hard time letting go even though I know it’s for the best. Just need some advice to see if you think we’re doing the right thing and how to make the friend transition

    Being friends after a breakup is a very hard thing to do without wanting more… I know you do not want to hear this but the less time you spend with her/talk to her, the easier it will be to get over her.

    The only way you can truly be friends post-break up is if you truly want only friendship, and don’t care if you get together again. I would take some time away from communicating with her so you can clear your head and figure out your true emotions.
