Hi I recently asked for some advice here and it worked great! So thank you all again! I broke up with my girlfriend of 3 years after a nasty argument because "she couldn't love me they way I want her to" - She studies a full time post grad course so she's always studying and doesn't have much time for a social life and is always stressed. We are in a long distance relationship which started off with us living close to each other. She only lives an hour away but I can't drive yet so it can be a bit difficult with her schedule. (currently learning to drive) We have just become friends again, we met yesterday and had a wonderful time which shows that we are actually great together. We talked about everything but the breakup. Had fun in the snow etc etc. We just recently become friends on facebook again so we can chat too. We ended the day saying that she knows I will always want more from this relationship but because she's in the middle of exams, she cannot commit to the relationship yet. In fact she said she's open for going on a date or an excursion once her exams are over (in a bit over 2 weeks.) She isn't seeing anyone, flirting with anyone because she's always been the introvert, old fashion type of girl. She works incredibly had in her course. I have hope in that this relationship can be much better than before and she is willing to get it a try once she has more free time after the exams. I guess what I'm asking for is...how do I cope with the constant need to contact her like before? I miss the good night texts, conversations and what we used to have before. Considering we had an amazing day together yesterday, what would be the best actions for me to take while I wait for her to finish her exams? How often should I contact her? Should I send her a valentines gift? as I always have as a boyfriend. Should I go see her for a day out sometime in between these 3 weeks? Any help would be great, my heart hurts knowing I can't be with her or have the same things as before but it's slowly feeling better knowing I can still trust her, talk to her, see her and that we are going to give it another try.
