Boy meets girl. Girl falls for boy. Then boy dumps her like it never happened.It seems like the classic story for most relationships these days.Well I met this boy over the summer through a mutual friend and things started out great! He walked me to my door one night and said, "Will you be my girl?" Corny, I know, but still it made my heart melt a little. He was sweet, considerate, and most things a boyfriend should be. We had our own little jokes and he was becoming my best friend after such a short time. The plus side was, his friends and I were all becoming very close as well.
However (there's one in every story like this), I lived with my dad about 5 hours away whereas the boy lived by my mom. So we tried a long-distance relationship which failed miserably when he decided that he would break up with me before I visited for a week. Not the smartest idea he's ever had, I know. We broke up after 5 months because of the distance.
We move on. Date different people.
Unexpectedly, I chose to move back to my mom's for various other reasons of course. Now the thought has often crossed my mind; a few more times than I care to admit. Will we ever try again? It's crazy to think we could, but there's that small sliver of hope deep down where all the movies, songs, books, and fantasies pounded into my head since I was a little girl, might actually come true for me.
I don't know what to think anymore. I've analyzed so much that I'm driving myself insane. I've asked friends, family, and a few random strangers what they thought and I keep getting mixed answers like, "Go back to him" or "You're still hung up on the dude?"
But what are your thoughts? Can it really happen? Or should long distance relationships that are no longer long-distance just be put to rest for good?
