I have been dating my boyfriend for a little over a year. We got together during our senior year in high school after going to the prom together. Currently, we are sophomores in college and are at separate schools (about 7 hours from each other). I love him very much and sometimes I can see spending the rest of my life with him. However, it gets incredibly difficult to be away from him throughout the school year, and I feel so hurt everytime I have to leave him again. It is as if we are being torn away from each other, and we have no control over it. Recently, I have been considering taking a break from him because I am scared to think of myself as being 19 years old and practically married. I am terrified that if I do break up with him that I will have lost the only person that I have ever loved and who has loved me. I would like to know your view on my problem and if you think I should stick with it and work through it because it will be worth it in the end, or if I should take a break from him.
