OK i'll try and keep this brief.
I'm 265 and going out with my girlfriend who's 31 for the last year.
I'm going to be heading away travelling in 6 months time for a year.
The trouble is my girlfriend has already been away for a year and is unlikely to come with me for the year.
What she has said is she'll come with me for a month at the start and then let me off on my own. After that we'll see how it goes and she might join me somewhere on my travels.
I just don't know if this relationship can continue if we're going to be apart for that long.
I'm not going away to meet other women or anything like that - i just think that anything can happen while you're away.
I don't want to turn around in a years time and tell her that i want out of the relationship because i'm having too much of a good time - i don't think this would be fair on her and also she'd be a year older and i don't want to be wasting her time.
Has anyone been in a similar situation?
Do you think i should just let her go - it could possibly be the biggest mistake of my life!!!
What is the best and fairest thing to do?
PS I know for sure this girl would wait for me no matter what. I just don't want to break her heart.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated and thanks for reading this long post.
