Ok, so I've been seeing my girlfriend of and on for a little over 2 years. About a year ago I moved about 2 hours away from her for work purposes. We've tried to make it work with the long distance thing. But lately I've been feeling unhappy. With thoughts of "yeah I have a girlfriend but at the end of the day I'm still alone." I know that I love her and care for her, but am also unhappy. Her moving here is on the table but, that won't happen anytime soon. I guess I'm feeling lonely. And, I was always told that its better to be alone and lonely than with someone and lonely. I don't really know how true that statement is. Anyway, recently we've had a few new employees at my work. And one of them is so sweet and funny, and has the prettiest smile I've ever seen. I've done my best to refrain from developing any feelings toward this new employee. But, recently I find myself thinking about her more than I do with my current girlfriend. She is constantly on my mind, and it seems as though the more I try to not develop feelings, the more feelings I have. She makes me laugh and smile, which is a big deal for me. I don't really have that with the girlfriend anymore. Mostly we talk for a little while on the phone, about our days. But, very quickly run out of things to say. It's not the same as it use to be. Anyway, my question is do I try to work it out with my current girlfriend, or do I try for something with this new girl? There is a mutual attraction between her and myself but, she knows I'm currently in a relationship, so our feelings haven't been acted upon. I"m just so very confused.

If you are really unhappy in your relationship than maybe it is time to say goodbye. People still human contact, affection, communication etc.
This is what makes being in a LDR so hard. You are not wrong, you just yearn to feel human touch.
Many relationships come to an end and that's okay, there time has run out. Talk to your girlfriend and express how you are feeling and what you need. See if she can make more trips to see you or vice versa.
If you do end it do not end if FOR THIS GIRL end it because you are unhappy and the distance just isn't working.1
