Leaving an exchange year early Watch
Don't let a relationship tear you away from an amazing opportunity. If you break-up (and there is a good chance of it given your age) then you will forever blame her for this. If your girlfriend is crying every night then this is just evidence she needs this seperation from you. If someone can't bear being apart from you this much then that means they are unhealthily dependent on you. She needs to learn to be responsible for her own happiness to be able to thrive as an individual. Besides, if your relationship can survive such a long-term seperation then you will be able to face anything.
