Should I break up?Watch
So me and my girlfriend are barely able to see each other now (twice in the last 6-7 months) I have nothing wrong with her it’s just so hard not being able to see her regularly and won’t be able to for a very long time (till we finish uni) but I don’t think I’d be able to hold off. It hurts so much not being with her and every day it just upsets me that we’d have to wait months at a time before we can meet for a day until our circumstances get better. Any advice?
You must have known you were both going to uni, so what, if any, circumstances have changed that you don't see each other often and that it's now a problem?
But above all - make yourselves both free agents.
There will be lots of wonderful people at your unis with whom each of you can have intimate relationships.
This is one of those times when the where is about as important as the who.
How is leaving her going to help? You’ll still not see each other, only now you’ll both be off with other people. If you really love her, it will hurt more to see her with other guys.
I’d stick it out.
Bad advice. If you don't think you can stick it out, I'd break up with her. I was in a similar position and I stuck it out and it was the worst mistake for both us. My best advice if explain the situation and break up
Why is it bad advice? Based on the implied assumption that your situation is similar or identical to the OP's? The OP said there is nothing wrong with her- they just don't see each other often enough- so why break up?
Yes OP says theres nothing wrong with her, but is rarely seeing her and probably unlikely to see her often in the future. He says that he thinks he won't be able to hold it off, which means he's struggling for it. It would make it easier for them to break up on good terms rather than potentially breaking up in bad terms. I was in pretty much the same scenario and I stuck with it and it was the worst decision I've made, so I would know.
