Long distance relationship? Is this normal?
What Girls & Guys Said11
I think it's completely normal to question if this relationship will satisfy you. But, I see you're 23. Probably pretty soon you will be able to graduate. I know that this distance is hard, especially for the first year when all you want to do is see him. It seems like you two really make an effort to see each other.
Honestly, I say give it time. A year. If, throughout this year, it feels like it is way too much for you to handle, hold on until a year. That's when relationships get pretty serious. It would really suck for you to leave the relationship when after a year or so, you guys could be planning to be moving in. You know? So maybe give it a little. It's going to be hard, but see if it's worth it. Climb the mountain, look at the view, and see if it's worth climbing a bit more. Just my dumb opinion!
This is anxiety. It's common. Therapy may help. Strengthening your social life outside of your time with him can help. Perhaps there's something meaningful to him that he can place in your possession while you're apart to reassure you, or some kind of arrangement the two of you can make that's reassuring to you. Ultimately this is a "you" problem, but if he cares about you he'll want to take steps to reduce your anxiety, within reason. The only way he can take that steps, whatever they are, is if you're honest about how the distance makes you feel.
