4 months is a long time in college months brother. LOL. Surviving that is no easy task.you are right. long distance relationships can work if you are a grown up.Wrong. I'm in successful relationship that started as a long distance relationship. Trust me, it works. Also HB's very own goat and karlawinslow ended up tying the knot and they were international b. He was in Toronto and she was in Arizona.
They do work. It's just low percentage. It works more for adults because adults are less needy. Adults have their own lives, work, hobbies, etc.
It's even lower percentage for college students. Nigs haven't even started living life yet and want to drink it all in. So dude above me said, you start to resent each other because you want to experience all of life even if it means experiencing other people. I'm of the belief that if it's meant to be you let it go and it'll come back. It's happened to me. Just end on good terms, stay in touch, make no obligations. Control your jealousy.
i should have clarified, because, of course, they can work. when he mentioned college though, and going to school apart from each other, i still think it's just game over. i could list example after example of this, but i'm just going to use the most recent one i have from personal experience.
my girlfriend studied abroad in Rome for a semester. 4 months. this almost doesn't even count as a long distance thing because it's such a short amount of time, literally 100 days she was gone. in that time period, every person in her class that had a significant other that they left behind, broke up. usually pretty quickly. i think the problem is that they don't really know what commitment means when it gets difficult, and they aren't prepared to stick around when the relationship gets tested. I know that Mia and I were able to stay together for 2 simple reasons. 1. I am a lot older than her, I am an actual adult. I have been through the bullshit relationships already and I am in love and committed to this one girl. 2. I don't drink. my head is on straight, every decision i make is a sober decision. i dont put myself in tempting situations, i.e. around drunk women with a girlfriend 10,000 miles away.
I remember when I was like 22, I left my girl of 3 years when I moved to NYC for a bit cuz I knew damn well I wasn't gonna be faithful. No damn way. I already knew where I was gonna be, who I was gonna be around, and there was this 10x badder chick that I'd be working with pretty much every day. I'm like, I'm a keep it all the way 100. I broke up with her. And in the end it was the best decision of my life. First I got to enjoy the new girl without having to feel guilty, but also the old girl did not handle young adulthood well. She went crazy and got OD fat. I dodged a major bullet.
