I am just so torn because I had it all planned out, all ready to move home and now I meet a girl.
Dude I feel you! I'm going through the exact same thing!
Long story short I went on a blind date with this one girl two nights in a row, we were out for more than 6 hours each night, we hit it off so well I've never had so much fun, and I've never seen a girl being so genuinely interested in me before. And she is beyond gorgeous, I received jealous stares like mad everywhere I went with her, from both girls and guys lol.
But of course with the f'in luck I have the next day after our last date was the day I left for my-semester long internship, so now everything is on hold. All I can do is call her every once in a while, and basically now we're "just friends". Which is fine for now, I kinda got the impression she'll be there for me when I get back, but I'm not counting on it, that'd be foolish of me. And I'm not closing my doors to other girls I may come across in the internship either (though I've had no luck so far). Also, for now, my career is my major priority, but not my only one.
So my advice is: do what you can to keep in touch, but don't put all your eggs in one basket, and DO
NOT put a girl before your career at this point in your life. I've seen close friends do that, and they missed out on many great career opportunities. Plus, if she really likes you "like that" she'll be willing to wait, but don't count on it to avoid an unpleasant surprise.
