Will my boyfriend be there when I get back?

Dear Panel,

I am 16 years old and am in a very serious, special relationship with my boyfriend. In January I am leaving to study abroad in France for six months. I'm excited for the oppurtunuity but all I can think about is leaving my boyfriend. I want to stay together but I don't know if he does. I don't know how guys feel about that. I know it's a long way off but it's already consuming my thoughts. I just really love him and I don't know how to talk to him about it, and how to deal with it if he doesn't want to stay together. I know he loves me also, I just don't know the sacrifices he's willing to make.

Leaving too soon

It's OK; have fun write.


Decide on the arrangements in advance.


It's going to be hard for your boyfriend, but it can work.
