Hey Guys and Gals,
So I'll have been dating my current girlfriend for 2 years, 2 weeks from now. I was a late bloomer in the dating sense, and she was my first kiss back when we started dating. In less than a year we came full circle. For the last few months I've always had this thought in the back of my mind, but recently it's become an issue that's been causing almost a slight depression when I think about it.
Let me preface a bit with some background. I'm in college, and my g/f's from back home. We only see each other during summer/winter break, and maybe a week combined during each semester. My core friends are kinda losers. They don't really do much, and I've never seen them go after girls. That kinda made it easier for me to get through the long distance relationship, cause I never had any temptation. Recently though, I've been hanging out with a new friend. He's like the polar opposite of them. He hooks up with girls all the time, and has told me a few stories. He mentions how intense some of them are, and it gets me thinking.
I've only had 1 partner, and I don't know how I feel, but I know that she could easily see us ending up married. I really do love her, and I don't want to break up / cheat, but I can't help but feel like I'm missing out on a huge part of life, and college. The stability of a relationship, and all the benefits that come with it are great, but I find myself longing for that stereotypical night were one goes out looking to meet someone for a one night stand.
I read in another thread that the average guy has 7 partners in his life, It's depressing thinking I may only have 1. I consider myself an attractive guy, and I can easily tell when girls flirt with me. I find myself wanting to flirt back, and look at the situation with the same end result as my friend, not just to pass it off as a friendly exchange and be on my way.
Of course the distance doesn't help. I'm sure if my g/f went to the same school, and I had an active sex life outside of the 3.5 months we see each other, I probably wouldn't desire it so much. but like, I don't know what to do. I think cheating would be a big mistake, but I know she doesn't have a similar dilemma. She literally thinks about me all day, and is completely satisfied with what we've got.
One Partner Prospect is getting me down
Hey Guys and Gals,
Look at it from another angle. You have someone that you love. Some that cares for you, and cares how your day was. Maybe everyone else is missing out?
it'll suck, but if you guys get through college, and get back together. Life will be good.
there's always that attraction to the unknown though.
