Just wanted to rant and need some support!!
Nine months into our relationship and everything is going wonderful…. except he is moving for his job 8 hours away this weekend. We are planning on getting married and me moving there next Spring/Summer, but it’s so hard not knowing 100% where life will really take us since we are relying on me matching (aka pure luck) for residency there. If I don’t match there it could be five years of long distance.
We plan on seeing each other every six weeks or so at the longest. I will see him in two weeks for a weekend (and he will meet allllllll of my family, like 100+ of them), then I will be going there to live for a month six weeks after his trip to see me. I’m dreading those six weeks, but there’s no possible way we can see each other between his new job and me working 70-80 hrs/week for school. Between October and March (when I finish school) I guess we will be playing seeing each other by ear.
I’ve been in a LDR before, but this seems a lot more difficult of a transition for me. Mainly because I am older/more mature, how amazing the relationship is and where we are planning on the relationship going. He just keeps saying “Keep faith that everything is happening for good,” which is great but it doesn’t help thinking like that when I’m hurting – he is leaving for great things and I am here finishing graduate school alone.
Trying to keep my head up and trust this is only a 10 month thing… But I also don’t want to rush my life away! Life is too short and I’m trying to enjoy each day… whatever it may bring.
Alright, that’s the end of it! I’m done ranting 🙂
