peeps - Distanced in DistressDear Peeps,
This is my first year here at UNLV, and I love it. I'm in a sorority here
and am enjoying my first year away from home. My problem however is what to do about my boyfriend. We've been together for two years now and I really do love him, but I'm having such a great time with my new friends. I don't know if a long distance relationship can survive. Please help.

Believe it or not, this is a very common problem with going off to college. There is no doubt that the love you feel for him is strong. However, part of growing up is change. You must allow yourself to grow and develop into who you will become. I suggest about your conflicting emotions with your man. Chances are he may be having similar struggles. Together, you may be able to work out the best road to take. Maybe it would be best not to stay so strictly committed. True love allows for freedom and honesty. After college, you may find out that he is the best thing for you. On the other hand, you may also meet someone else. This is not necessarily a loss, though. Love can change forms and still be amazing. If you really love each other, then you won't want to lose what you have either way. Throughout your life, together or not, you can still have him as a friend.
