    Is this bad timing, or should I give it a shot?

    Met a Vietnamese girl last February, and we hit it off instantly. The relationship was moving fast, because she was so into me. Then I was accepted into a school about 3 hours from where we live. I was upfront and told her I’d be leaving for graduate school that summer. She was upset, of course, and the relationship was basically over from that point.

    So I started school, and we didn’t talk for 4 months. Then out of the blue, she contacted me, and we started talking again. I’m currently on break for the summer, so we went out again. She admitted she still had feelings for me, and I told her I had the same. She revealed she was waiting for me to ask her to be my girlfriend back then. I told her that wouldn’t be fair to her, since I’d be leaving. She understood, and we agreed to stay in touch. We’re not technically “committed” right now.

    However, I realize since I saw her, I’ve completely fallen for her. But there’s still this distance issue. Thoughts please.

    If you still had such strong feelings for each other after 4 months of no contact then I should think there’s potential for a long distance relationship to work.

    If you want to be together despite the fact that you are away from each other, you have to be really patient. You will meet rarely but the moments you will spend toghether will be unforgettable. If its worth it for you – give it a try.
