Long distance relationship. It's had it's up, it's had it's downs, and whenever we're together, things are great. But we don't get to visit that often. When we're apart, neither of us are really happy. The short of it is that neither of us are really able to find a good balance between doing our own thing, and getting to talk to each other. We both don't want to put the other aspects of our life on hold, but the ability to socialize with each other while doing other things is nonexistent due to the situation. On the flip side, neither one of us wants to sit there on Skype every day. We love each other. We want to be with each other. But she's not happy with things as they are now, and there's nothing either of us can really do about it. She's Canadian, so up and moving, even though we're both convinced we'd be happy if this was possible, isn't an easy option. Dealing with immigration is a huge pain. She's still in love with me. I'm still in love with her. Neither of us want to let each other go, but she doesn't feel like she can keep this up. I haven't got any idea what to do. I'm not ready to give up on the relationship, but I know I don't have a choice if she has. We agreed to just not talk for the next week, and see how we both feel about breaking up, seeing if maybe she realizes she doesn't want it, or if I realized it was for the best. Getting up and starting to move on when we're both still in love doesn't seem like the right choice, but holding on to hope when there's none doesn't seem to be either. So what do you do when you both love each other, but the situation makes it near - or actually - impossible to be together? The situation is about a year away from actually improving. So, even if a week from now we decide that things aren't working out now, if we both still are 100% sure we love each other, do we just keep in touch every now and then, and then try to rekindle things when we can? All of the options seem like bad ones, too me. If we decide the break up is right, I lose someone I love dearly. If after that, we decide to try again in a year, then we're stuck loving each other for a year, but being apart, with no guarantee things will work better. If we get back together, then we're still stuck dealing with all of the pain and hurt caused by being 2500 miles apart. Fucking thing sucks.
