Thanks for the responses guys. I guess I can put this all here because the lady doesn't even know this website exists, so I can ask for your advice about this here. Well, here goes.
Ok, we've been together since last November, but I honestly felt I've hit a true gem. I've actually known her since I was 12 years old, and we've always been friends. One part of me wants to go ahead with this, but another part of me is saying "Are you sure this is a good idea?" I'm only 20 and still in school. In August, I'll be going back to school in IL
and she'll be in CA
. Lastly, as much as I want it, its quite an unnerving thought, if that's a good word for it.
