To keep it short, this one girl I have had feelings for quite some time now wants to date me. I would love to (of course) except my time with her will be limited (because I am focused on studies) as in only seeing each other on saturdays and maybe around school but thats it. Will that work or is it not worth the effort?
yes it can work if the both of you agree in this type of relationship. i feel as though there's a quality about about you she is really drawn to in you. she is going to make the sacrifice now to see you on the weekend or in passing knowing there's a better future when your done with school.
My most awesome marriage was a long-term relationship for the first 14 months. We only saw each other every month or two. It was most excellent -- and probably more conducive to developing a relationship with real depth.
In fact, I'm a pretty staunch advocate of an LDR phase in any long-term relationship. Both people should have lives of their own. If you can't survive apart, then yr relationship most likely isn't a good or healthy one.
BUT... What's the real reason? Do you also have a 30-40hr/wk job, or something? Because, really, school isn't THAT hard or all-consuming.
My relationship is currently like this, though we are both equally busy. I think it's convenient, because sometimes I'm tired from work and school. So is he. The mutual understanding that sometimes we need chill time/alone time is great.
Buuuut sometimes one party will start to feel neglected by the other.
