I'm only 17 but I've been in a relationship for two years now. I know that I want this relationship to last much longer, although there is a slight problem.
My girlfriend and I have very different career ideas, and both require us to leave home to different places. She will go to Edinburgh, and I want to go to America. I'm trying to convince her that we can keep our relationship alive even if it is long distance.
She says that it's impossible, that we'll both be unhappy and insecure about being alone so far apart. I think if we try hard enough we can make it work.
I really want to be with her, any advice on how to deal with it?
