    Should I say yes?

    So there’s this guy that I have known since I was in the 9th grade, and I am now a junior in college. He recently DM’d me on twitter on Feb.21 after I posted a picture, calling me beautiful and stuff like that. So since then we have been texting and we decided to enter the “talking” stage, meaning we’re getting to know each other again and trying to build towards a relationship. There is just one problem… he’s in Germany. He’s there to train because he is in the military and he is supposed to be coming home in October or November, he’s not sure yet. The distance between us is not the problem, the problem is how long he is going to be there. I basically have to go about 7-8 months without seeing him in person. Fast forwarding to last night, he asked me to be his girlfriend. For me I that it may be too soon considering the fact that we have never met in person, we’ve only seen each other in passing and we’ve said hi across the room but that is about it. So I don’t consider that as…

    (continued)…us meeting. I really do like him and part of me wants to say yes, but the other part of me is afraid because I have only been texting him for 2 weeks and we’ve never been able to see each other in person so I don’t know, I’m just confused. Should I say yes and be strong until October or November? Or should I tell him that we need to wait a little longer?

    I forgot to mention that he’s allowed to fly people out there but he’s not allowed to leave due to a lot of soldiers going AWOL. They have certain weekends when they’re allowed to have visitors & he told me he’s going to work on getting me out there this summer when my classes are over.

    I’m a guy who is a junior at college, and I have been considering going through a similar situation (contacting a girl I knew from HS). From my point of view, if things reach the point where I feel that there is the possibility that we could have a relationship, I would be happy to wait for her in case she feels she needs to wait. I want to contact that girl because I feel that there was a chance something great could have happened, and I kind of screwed it up back then. I would advise you to do what you makes you feel comfortable the most, since if it were me contacting you, I would really value your opinion on this. Hope I helped!
