I’ve fallen in love with someone I’ve been exclusively seeing for 6 months now, however in a few months time he’s moving halfway across the world for a year. Neither of us knows what to do, I want to make it work knowing it’ll be hard, then the other part of me doesn’t know whether to end it now so that I have more time to heal. But then why end now if we have more months to enjoy together? Has anyone got any advice?

Live in the now and see how things unfold until when he has to leave. No point in stressing over it now.

If you really like each other and see this lasting long term then I don’t see why you can’t be apart for just a year. I don’t know if exclusively seeing means you’re boyfriend and girlfriend and you’re in love and you’ve met each other’s parents etc. because it could mean anything. But if you’re in a serious relationship and you see yourself in the future possibly getting married then of course stay togeyher.

@yi_eune that’s what we’ve decided to do, it’s just difficult knowing that in a few months it could all end

@lumiere that’s what I’m hoping for. I’ve met his parents, he’s going to meet mine soon. We’ve not put a label on our relationship because of not knowing what will happen in the future, but we are together seriously. We’re just kinda avoiding the subject of the future so that we enjoy being ‘in the now’

@Bumblebeexx I completely understand as I’ve been in a LDR for a year and a half. Even if he goes away for a year I’m sure you can figure something out to see each other maybe once or a few times even! Just try and enjoy what’s happening now and if it doesn’t last at least you had a good time together!

I feel like a year is not that long, if you guys are serious about each other it’s definitely worth a try. At least you have a definite time frame, many people are in ldrs without knowing when they’re gonna close the gap

Where is he going to? Long distance can suck, but at least he's back within a year. It's up to you. I was in the same position a year ago and my boyfriend and I decided to give it a shot anyway. We've been together for a while now and although long distance isn't great, we are very happy and it's working out very well. It really depends on how YOU feel and, if you decide to continue the relationship, how much both of you are willing to invest in long distance.
