I’m so so sorry. When my FI and I were long distance, it was one of the hardest things we as a couple have ever gone through. We had a fight almost exactly this. Just don’t worry too much about it. I think if you talk about it in a few days, you’ll both realize that it’s just because you’re not physically together and it’s hurting you. My FI and I have been together since we were 16, then we both went to different colleges and did long distance for four years. When we turned 22, we moved in together and have lived together till now (two years). The time together is nothing like the time apart. When we were apart, I was seriously questioning whether or not I wanted to even be with him anymore, and I actually had relationships with other people (with FI’s permission) while keeping things as a sort of pending relationship with FI. While we were still a couple and loved each other, we left it open so if we met someone we really loved locally, we had a way out and could have the local person if we wanted. Nothing compared to my FI, and as soon as we got back together in person, we got engaged and couldn’t be happier. Long distance and in person are really different. Don’t break up because of long distance problems. You should mention that to her.

You can PM me if you want. I took a pretty extensive class on grief counseling and everyone I know in pain generally goes to me. 😛

AlexiaMichelle:  I’m sorry that you’re going thru this, but just hang in there knowing that time guarantees you two things, 1) It heals what hurts you, and 2) It strengthens what once was broken.
