    i've been with my boyfriend for about 6 months now and i'm going to uni in september, so its gonna have to be a long distance thing. which ive never done before. and, i mean, we've both known from the start that it would end up long distance or just to break up when i leave. but i love him to bits so i don't really wanna do the last one tbh.
    couple of problems though. he doesnt trust me, which is unfair because i've never done anything to compromise his trust, however his previous girlfriends were positively *******, all the same he shouldn't compare me to them. and i know i know you'll say jealous boyfriends are a waste of time, but mine has chronic depression, so it's not entirely his fault, and complicates matters.i also want to say i'm not just staying with him because of his depression and because of how he'd react if we broke up, however i don't like having the feeling that i can't, even though i don't want to.
    most of my friends are boys, and i assume the trend will continue into uni,which can only aggrivate matters. i don't want the way he feels to compromise who i want to be friends with.
    and it's difficult talking to him about this because he'll start going on about how much of a 'rubbish human being he is' and his guilt will guilt me, it's just a very delicate situation. and i don't know howi can breach the trust discussion without seeming like i want to have an open relationship, or break up with him, or that he makes me unhappy.
    because he doesn't. i'm just having difficulty with this in my brainbox.
