Recently just started dating someone who lives around 300 or so miles away. Things are going good, we speak on the phone and message each other a lot etc.
Things are good, we always speak about how we are looking forward to see each othet etc, have 2 hour conversations on phone etc. Starting to now develop some feelings for this girl and because its long distance not sure it could work in the long run?
We got introduced through a friend of ours and then she came to a party and met all my othet friends etc. One thing that gets to me already is that I see her comment on my friends status she looking forward to catching up with him etc, but she never writes on a status of mine. Not that I write many but it kinda feels like she doesn't want us to be public or anything... probably a bit weird and me overacting tbh.
Just dont want to get hurt, and were all going on a trip this weekend me and her and all my friends, dreading it a little bit in case she shys away from me. Totally the opposite of what she says in messages though, I just think im over reacting maybe but with the distance and me not just being able to see her when I want sucks :(
Well we went on our trip at the weekend and it was a great trip but we hardly spoke all weekend and on the Friday I decided to pull back and not bother as wasn't wasting my energy on this :(
Weird development though, ended up sleeping with a good friend on the trip, good idea or not? We have always got on well and sort of liked each other for a long time and it was absolutely amazing too! Had a great weekend with my friend instead in the end.

Long distance relationships are certainly difficult. I'm in one now so I can relate and understand where you're coming from. It's important to have good communication skills though and don't let little things get to you. Just because she makes a comment one one guy's status on social media doesn't mean anything. But if something does really bother you, don't be afraid to speak up and tell her. That's something I struggle with a lot but I've been working on it. You shouldn't bottle those emotions inside, it will only cause tension in the relationship.
Do you have any plans for long-term? With long-distance relationships, ultimately, one of you should have plans to move closer to the other at some point down the road. It can't stay long-distance forever. Perhaps that's something you two should talk about as well. As for this weekend, it should be fun! Hang out with her and your friends. You're in a relationship so I'm not sure why she would "shy away" from you.1
