The issue: I'm dating a girl that I met about a month before the school year ended. How do I keep it going over the summer?
Important Bkg info:
I met this girl about a month before the end of the school year was over. Then I guess you can say that about 2 weeks before the end of the semester we started "dating."
So while final projects were due and final exams were going on, we were starting to date.
On her last day we agreed to not see or do things with other people over the summer.
This was a little over 3 weeks ago. Since then -- we've been talking very nearly every single day on the phone/texts/im/video chats. Often we talk for hours.
I know that we've just met, but I really like this girl. And on the days where we don't really talk much or talk at all, I don't feel good. Is that normal?
She has told me that she doesn't expect me to call her every day, that every other day would be fine. But that a text at least once a day would be really nice. She would get worried if it was 3 days since I last called.
I started my internship this past week and she has a job where she lives -- so this past week is the least we've talked in the past 3 weeks since school ended. She mentioned to me the other night that she hopes that we're not "drifting apart." I'd say that we only talked for maybe 4-5 hours across the whole entire week, when in the 2 weeks before that, that wasn't unusual for an entire day.
She is visiting me for the weekend -- but not for another 5 weeks.
How do I keep what we have going until she visits and for the rest of the summer after that? I don't want us to "drift apart" like she mentioned we might be.
I really like her and miss her -- but it is weird to think that for the 5 or so weeks that we've been together, 3 of those have been without even seeing her in person.
How do I continue to make this work?
