    Please Help: Long Distance Relationship

    Alright so I’ll try to keep this short. So my boyfriend and I started dating about 6 months ago. We are both freshmen in college, and we have a lot in common because we are both athletes. We clicked instantly, and we spent almost every weekend together and hung out a lot on campus. The problem is that at Christmas break, he decided to transfer schools. I wasn’t too upset about it at the time because we had only been dating for about two months, so I didn’t expect him to change his plans for me. However, he lives and attends college in Texas now, which is 13 hours away. We FaceTime every day, but lately I’ve been feeling him skip a way a little, which is scary because I love him.

    He’s been really busy lately, so I don’t know if it’s because of his schedule or if the distance is causing him to start to lose feelings for me. I don’t know if our relationship will be able to survive the distance. Should we try to make this work or move on before feelings start to get too strong?

    As freshman you’re probably 18 or 19.
    Move on!

    Long distance relationships were meant to be temporary. The goal is to be with the person you love.
    When there is {no light at the end of the tunnel} whereby someone relocates to be with the other, couples drift apart.
    It’s the counting down of the months, weeks, and days until one is done with the inconvenience of being in a LDR that keeps it strong!
    It’s unrealistic to expect to make a long distance relationship work for 4-6 years while you both pursue your degrees.

    Odds are one of you will make new friends, attend parties/events, pledge, and develop romantic interest on campus.

    Long distance has an ending point. Either moving back to the same place or the relationship ends.

    always have communication!!, once communication is gone love starts to fade & eyes are set on another.
