I don’t know what to do
This isn’t so much of a confession but I’m hoping to get some insight.
So my current girlfriend of nearly 2 years is leaving for college in Arizona, we live in Michigan. Now how do we continue on? She seems to think that Skyping, calling, and texting will make everything ok but she’s going to be gone for 2-3 years. In my mind it’s over when she leaves. There’s so much going against us. Time, distance, new people (she’ll be meeting) etc. I already have 3 children and I’m 33 I don’t exactly have time to gamble on something that isn’t guaranteed. I don’t want to lose her but I feel it’s inevitable. I’ll be out of sight and out of mind eventually, even though her intentions and mindset are good/positive.
She is 27 and gorgeous despite the fact that she’s overweight. She could easily find someone else if this were to fall through. She says I’m giving up on us, I say I’m being realistic. I apologize for the rambling, it’s hard to gather my thoughts these days.
