Without getting too long-winded, I've been in a relationship for the past year and four months and don't know if I should stick it out or leave. I love him...truly...and being with him has taught me a lot about myself and relationships. The problem is that he has decided to move about 40 minutes away...which isn't a big deal in terms of distance (most of my past relationships have had such a drive-time), but I feel really abandoned and hurt, partly due to rational issues about the move, and partly from issues from my past having nothing to do with him.

I tend to be pretty black and white about some things and my first instinct was to break it off when he decided to move. After talking to him and doing some thinking, I decided to take it day by day and see how I feel. He is moving this weekend, and it is really, really difficult. I don't want to end things prematurely, before he even goes. But on the other hand, it just hurts so much and I don't know that I will end up being okay with it.

Obviously I have a lot of issues going on here...my main concern is giving up to early or holding on too long. Do I wait it out and see how things go or break it off sooner rather than later?

Thanks!

I have to tell you that I really like this guy and I think you should stick it out. I see very good long term potential. I think he's a keeper.

Wow, thanks. That will make his day, lol (he doesn't know I asked, but he is aware of how much I'm struggling and is working with me to get through it). I do love him and honestly, he feels like home to me.
