I've been seeing a girl since March and while we aren't "together", we spend time together... hang out, have sex, kiss goodbye, cuddle, etc.
There's a lot of affectionate elements that make me hesitant to call us 'fark buddys' or FWB--- but its also not like we say "i love you" or anything like that. We've just never really had the "what are we?" discussion. We never really did the 'formal' type dates (you know like candlelight dinner etc). It's just more casual. I really like her but I have no idea how think she thinks of me. I'm very inclined to believe it's about more than sex - but again, we haven't had the conversation. Would we do these other things if it was "just for fun" ? I dont know.
So I'm going to school down state (about an hour or so away) in 7 days.. I have NO IDEA what to do. I'm absolutely terrified of loosing this girl because I've never liked someone so much in my life. I'm disappointed in myself for waiting to the last second with this huge problem.. I just been afraid to sound ridiculous when we both know that I'll be at school.
I know a lot of people are going to tell me forget about her- just move on and see other people and perhaps we can pick it up later on.... This isn't an option. I want this girl. No one else. Besides you can't just "pick it up later" , that'll never happen.
I also know 'long distance' has a horrible reputation. How could I even consider this if we're not even "together" now.
What should I do? How can I tell her?
