I met my boyfriend in high school, and at the end of grade 12 we began dating. Now I went off to college and he stayed behind to try to pursue athletics so we've been doing the whole long distance thing for 2+ years now. Our relationship is amazing. He cares so much for me like I never thought anyone could and he's always there when I need him. Luckily its only a 2 hour drive, and we get to see each other every 2-3 weeks. But recently I've had this fear that I'm missing out on my college experience. I'm worried I'm going to look back when I'm older and think about how I could have done things differently. Next year he is going to school, but somewhere about 6-8 hours away from my school. I'm worried once he gets to be in college he's going to have all these opportunities I have right now and drop me, and I'll feel like an idiot for not getting to experience these things because I was dating him. Don't get me wrong I am happy dating him, I'm just scared and have these doubts. Is it worth losing my best friend for these "experiences" that may or may not exist. When we hang out something feels different because I have these doubts at the back of my head that I don't know how to get rid of.
Advice would be greatly appreciated.
Ok so if youre scared hes going to leave you dont you think he has the same fear. He is probobaly feeling the same way you are so the best thing to do is just to talk to him about it. On the college expierence thing, no it is not worth losing youre best friend and you can still have a college expierience with a boyfriend. Really think about it. Dont make rash decisions, wait a month or two and see if you have the same feelings. Hope this helped and if i wasnt clear enough just tell me
I've spoken to him about it and all these fears I have about missing out on opportunities and how I'll feel if when he goes to college and things don't work out. I'm really indecisive and have changed my mind and told him so many times that now he's making the option either be with me or don't because he's tired of me dragging this out which is understandable. I'm just worried of making a decision I will regret. Especially because he says if things end between us, he won't be ready to be friends yet... Which makes it harder
