Give Advice: Should I Move On From My LDR Or Wait For Him?

Published on August 6, 2012 by gusterson_

My ex and I were dating for 5 months but have been together for a little over a year now. He's not ready for another relationship but he says I still have a shot with him. We live walking distance from each other, and in a few weeks I'm going to college and it will be hard to see him. I think I've fallen back in love with him, but I dont know what will happen between us when I'm gone. I know that he loves me, I dont want to lose him again. What should I do?


He says he's not a ready for relationship but that you have a shot. Sounds wishy washy and cocky to me. You don't say why you two broke up. I wouldn't tie myself to someone who you'll rarely see. You have an exciting life ahead with your education. You're going to be meeting a lot of new people. Why tie yourself to someone who you'll probably end up fighting with a lot because of the distance issue. You need to concentrate on your studies, and not be worried about him. You are both young. What you want now might not be what you want in your late twenties. People change and grow alot in this time period.

If you both are still single when you get out of college, you'll probably be at a more mature level to have a more mature relationship. Maybe you'll meet someone awesome at college and will be glad you didn't put yourself on hold for someone who you already had a broken relationship with. You're young. Take your time to get some life experience in so you really know what you're looking for in a man. Good luck.

Long distance relationships are hard. They can't work unless BOTH people are FULLY committed to keeping the relationship strong. He doesn't seem like he's ready for a relationship. He seems more like he wants to keep you around unless he can't find someone he likes more. I'd say go to college and have fun. You never know who you might meet. If it's meant to be it will be.
