Well, my heart is in it. It's him i'm unsure of. Loyalty isn't his strength x
Hmmm. Your last sentence here does worry me slightly - do you mind me asking if you think like this from things that have happened during your relationship or his past ones?
If you've been going out nearly two years, then that's a fantastic grounding for it to work. I know this isn't always the case, but it does generally help. It also sounds like you're really close, and obviously see an awful lot of each other. I think that initially, this will be the hardest thing to overcome - for both of you. Always keep in mind that he will be doing the same things that he has done for years, and it's you who's going to be meeting new people, experiencing different things, and settling into what is essentially, a new life. Now, it depends on what type of person he is, but I reckon things could change from his end in two ways:
1) You may hear from him a lot, lot more. This may be because he's missing you like crazy, and it may be because he'll be wondering about all the new people your meeting, and wanting to subconsciously remind you that he's still there.
2) You may hear from him a lot less. This isn't likely to be because it's a case of 'out-of-sight, out-of-mind' scenario, but more likely because he's sensitive to the situation that when you're meeting new people, sometimes you just need space to do that. He won't know what you've got in your diary now, he won't know when you're busy or not, and he may feel like he doesn't want to interrupt you making new friends.
My boyfriend (at the time) acted in the second scenario. I found that it was always me phoning him, and me initiating the texts - which I had absolutely no problem with. In fact, I was probably texting him more and more often because I didn't want him to feel like I'd gone and got myself a new life, of which he wasn't a part of anymore. I didn't want him to be continually wondering what I was doing - so I text him to excitedly let him know what I was doing, and how things were going. He later told me that he really appreciated that, so if you can, read how your boyfriend may react, and act accordingly. Always try and put yourself in his shoes; reverse the situation.
It's obvious, I know, but communication really is the key to LD relationships. It's perfectly possible for a LD relationship to work out provided the two people involved know that they both want to be with each other, and essentially, imo, they both see a future together.
Just generally now - not directly in reply to lil_crazyflakes:
I really don't understand the whole tempted to stray at Uni feeling. Sure, you're away from your partner, but if you're really in love, then in your opinion, surely you've got the best guy/girl in the world. Why would anyone be tempted, if you've already got the best on your arm? Again, I think it's mainly down to whether or not you see a long-term future together. But, anyway, I've had this debate before and realise that some people see it differently
Anyway! That's my (allbeit rather lengthy... sorry!) tuppence worth
Hope things work out lil_crazyflakes
