Girlfriend is scared of getting too close before college?

Asked: Girlfriend is scared of getting too close before college?

Both me and my girlfriend are seniors in high school and like most, thinking about college. We have been dating for just over a year now and love each other a lot. Because we really want to go to colleges in different states, she is afraid of getting intimate and getting too attached, knowing that if we do end up going to colleges in different states, we will most likely not be able to stay together or if we do, our relationship would be put under too much stress.

I am worried that as time goes on she will just push me further and further away; I'm already starting to see it. From my point of view, I would like to spend as much time as possible with her while we still have it. The best way I can describe the feeling is if you know that a family member with a terminal illness is going to die soon, you try to make the time you have left meaningful and not distance yourself from them.

This is my first serious relationship and maybe I don't have the experience to know my way of thinking is worse in the long run. I was wondering if any of you have had been in this type of situation before and can offer any advice on what to do or say?

Thanks in advance!


It depends how far away both of your colleges are away from each other. If you really love each other, you will find away to make it work. You won't let distance ruin it. Besides, long distant relationships are adorable. If she isn't looking for or doesn't want a long distant relationship, I'm gonna have to go with this; If you love something, let it go, and if it was ever really yours in the first place, it'll come back. Good luck hun xx
