I've been sort of seeing this guy for about 3 months now. I've fallen pretty hard for him and he's told me several times that he really likes me too. Trouble is, he's leaving the country for a year in a week. He's assured me I'm going to get to spend some more time with him before he leaves, but the big question I have is- should I tell him exactly how I feel? On the one hand, I want to tell him so at least I know he knows, but on the other hand, even if I tell him, would he realistically still want to see someone he's known three months in a years time? We've had a pretty great time together so far, we talk all the time, he's really sweet and we hang out (& sleep together) regularly. Admittedly he's been rather distant these past few weeks but I'm putting it down to how busy he must be with organising for the trip. I'm totally stumped as to what to do anymore, so any advice would be much appreciated.

I know I'm going to get some people a little mad at me, but I just think long distance relationships are a bad idea. I know it's only my personal opinion, but every person I have ever known (myself including) who had a long distance relationships ended up with someone hurt. In the Church I grew up in, the young adults (18-21) were expected to leave on a mission for a year and a half, with only letters for contact. So their girlfriends/boyfriends would promise to wait for them. They would come back only to find out they didn't. Someone always ends up moving on while the other is trying to be faithful. So I wouldn't say anything. If one of you meets someone during that year, then the other is just going to end up hurt. If your both still single when he gets back, then take up where you left off. I know it sucks, but I have just seen it happen to many times.0

If you don't you lose your chance. If you do and he leaves anyway - ad least you tried.0
