I met the most incredible guy while studying abroad. I just have 3 months more here and I really want to keep dating him but I am very very afraid because I know that it has an expiration date.. There is no way I want a distance relationship. I already had it once and it hurts so much.
Is crazy to fall in love of someone that I know I will have to break up in 3 months?

I just did this. I was living in the UK for the last year and I met an incredible girl about 10 months ago. It worked out because she was moving to a new town the same time I was going home, so we made it official and exclusive and we got connected and dated.
I can tell you I have absolutely no regrets. Yes, it hurt a lot to break up, especially because I have never had a peaceful break up where we both knew it would happen and set a time to say good bye... I cried for the first time in years saying good bye to her and she did too. But I still have no regrets.
The good thing is, and not to sound shallow, but the fact that she was totally removed from my life at home, it made getting over it way faster. It is hard to explain, but when you come home, your life abroad sort of feels like a dream, and your relationship too to some extent. Not to say I will ever forget, or that I would want to- but it is just so much easier to move on when you are not looking around everywhere at reminders.
Also, 3 months is long enough to get attached, but not super long. to be honest, we dated for almost 2 months before we made it exclusive/official- and even then I was not super attached for a few more months- but I move slow in dating and feelings...
I say go for it!4
