I am going away to college soon and will be involved in a long distance relationship. One part of me is in love with the girl I am dating and wants to marry her one day and have children with her. Another part of me wants to go out and explore all the other girls out there to see exactly what there is. I am so confused and scared that I am going to make the wrong decision. I love her....What do I do ?
Dont go sewing wild oats all over the place........... If you love her see where and how far you can build the best relationship with her....... Cultivate what you have now you never know what is waiting to bloom
If you really love her, then try to work hard at keeping your long distance relationship alive. You will know for sure when you've been gone for a while and can't stand being away from her. It will be hard and even unbearable at times, but if it's true love, all of your sacrifices will be worth it in the end. Good luck!
Wish I could say "love is all you need" like the fairytales and bad fortune cookies tell you. But in reality, you need proper communication, especially at your young age, touching, holding hands, going out with each other, all these things are vital to your relationship building. Without it, your relationship will slip downhill for a while. Not to say it can't survive, it definately can... But the process requires both of your 100% commitment, and a few years of sadness and frustration. From the sounds of it, you're not ready to be 100% commited, you're looking to explore to verify she is what you really want. This is healthy, and if things work out then after experiencing new people and not being happy, you might end up with her again.
