So we only dated for a few months in the past summer, but I've gone onto college and so has she. We are 1000 miles away, but we've still kept up with each other and talk almost every day. We both just admitted to each other today that we still very much have feelings and miss each other like crazy. I think I might be in love with this girl. She's so wonderful and kind and warm I just want to curl up with her for hours but obviously we can't do that because she's so far away. Every time I talk to her I'm so much happier afterwards. I've always been a socially anxious person, but when I'm talking to her that all goes away. She brings out the best in me, and makes me want to work hard in school now so maybe one day I could transfer over if need be. I think part of this is just me being 18 and stupid, or at least that's my worry I'm really worried that maybe I don't even know myself well enough to know if she's so perfect for me. I'm only 18
We both just admitted that we can't wait to see each other over thanksgiving break. And I really think we'll probably feel the same way over the holiday break. So what do people think? Is some sort of open relationship in college even worth it? Can the distance work out? I think that if we were doing to enter into something serious it would have to be an open relationship just because it really doesn't make a ton of sense to hold out for someone for so long on the hope that by some miracle it works out.
