Anyone contemplating whether it’s worth maintaining a long distance relationship with their SO or breaking up before school starts? How are you navigating this?

Following! Not sure if I’ll meet someone better in school

My view is that there will always be better people out there and I don’t have eternity on this planet to meet every person. Time is a scarce resource. Therefore I have a baseline of things that my SO has to have before I commit to them. They’re high but not unreasonable standards, I like to think. Plus it’s important to not require relationships to make me happy, since that puts so much pressure on the SO to perform all the time. I wouldn’t want them to expect me to be the source of all their happiness either, because I’m a person with flaws too. People aren’t perfect.

Rather, it’s about — I’m happy in myself, I enjoy this other person’s companionship, and they challenge and support me to become a better person. I’m better with them than without them.

Depends, do you want to stay together? Is your plans after bschool incongruous with their live plans (eg you want to move to the west coast and they want to stay east?)

One of ex’s friends who is I met twice, has been in touch, him and his wife, like commenting on some of my posts occasionally (we are just fb friends and IG friends). I never saw them since. Then the friend texts asking if I am seeing someone and that he wants to set me up with someone. He felt awkward doing that, I thanked him for thinking of me, but then he said we all told your ex he is an idiot for letting you go and they asked my ex it they could still be touch with me and he said yes.

It just feels so good to enjoy a quiet moment with your friends after a day in the field, the feeling of companionship can be felt even through the silence. I'll never forget those moments.

At this moment, I am almost depressed. I am in a relationship with this guy for 2 years now. In the past 2 years, we have fought more than we have lived days with peace. We both have high ego problems because of which it’s really hard to resolve a conflict. Things have recently escalated to calling names/swearing and even physically abuse from both sides. We both want to end the relationship, have tried so many times, but we cannot.

Never tell your wife to calm down. That won’t go well for you.

Instead, turn it into a question like “does someone need a time out?” Much less confrontational that way.
