Question

Dear Panel,

Now that the end is near she continues to stick to the original plan saying that she needs to live her life out there without any strings to tie her down.

We obviously are at different points in our lives, but we're so good together. What do I do?

Dear Panel,

My girlfriend and I are in a very amazing relationship. We've been together since the beginning of the year in a distance restricted relationship.

We've Always Lived Apart

I am going to be a senior at the University of Illinois and she lives up in Chicago about 2 hours away. We've progressed wonderfully despite this distance between us and truly love and cherish each other.

The problem comes in now though. She is going to be a freshman at the University of Arizona next year.

We Knew It Would End When She Goes To School

From the beginning we knew that our relationship would end when she leaves for school. Now that the end is near she continues to stick to the original plan saying that she needs to live her life out there without any strings to tie her down.

I Don't Want To Break Up

I on the other hand have made it clear that I want us to stay together and whatever happens happens. I will feel cheated if we don't at least give "us" a chance when she leaves.

We are completely in love but we disagree on this. And I am confused and don't know
what to do. We obviously are at different points in our lives, but we're so good together.

What do I do?
