Okay, this is my first topic, and I'm not sure if it already exists, I didn't see it in the older threads...

Yesterday my girlfriend move to Seattle in Washington state, and I live in Florida, across the damn country. We had our tearful goodbye at the airport, and then she left. We decided not to have a long distance relationship, even though we do love each other, we both thought it would be easier to let go and move on, even though we will be friends and keep in touch. I wanted to know about other times when other people had to let go of something or someone, even when they didn't want to, and how they moved on.

My best friend for 15 years moved to Georgia last year from Pennsylvania. We still see each other a few times a year and talk almost everyday though. I also lost touch with most of my friends from highschool now that I am in college.

I might be unsympathetic but at least you know she's alive, safe and sound. Be glad about that. I didn't want to let my parents go for a long time, but in middle of a class lesson half a year later, I had a realisation that I have to accept it and move on, so I did. I had a tougher job letting go of anger over that dumb fuck who drank and drove and that he got only three years for it, but I got over it. Life goes on. People die every day. People leave every day. Memories are born and, with time, some fade away. It can get harder to remember their faces clearly, but that's the way it goes.

Now when friends move away or when I break up with a girlfriend, I'm fine with it because it's just a page in a book. You have to keep turning pages if you want to live your life. At least you can always flip back to their page if you want to remember them.

it's a hard habit to break...

i have my own story, but i think it's better for me not to tell...

I have a budhist friend who told me once that "letting go" is one of the hardest things to do... I'd like to share it here, but it's kinda long... anyway, you can try and read the stuff below... they helped me understand...

I had aspirations to fight hard and become an animator. Unfortunately, I had little or no natural talent. But one of my best friends is studying in the animation department and I found that I have trusted her with my dream. Sometimes you try hard to do something and in the process, realize that you never really had a chance in the first place, even if your own feelings were real. Sometimes you have to accept everything you have and move onward to what else life has to offer.

The ability to let go is a sort of sanity litmus test. Love and hate make you crazy, but time beats them both. Learn to love and hate your time all at once. Just know that love will move it faster.

I don't think i'd do the same thing. It's hard for me to let go - to move on - esp if i really love the person. Who says 'long distance relationship' won't work? For me, every person can deal with the gap of distance and time, even if it's really difficult - for the sake of the feelings he/she's holding on. You cannot appreciate the beauty of love if you cannot risk to save it from every trials that comes - no matter how foolish it may be.

I haven't talked to or kept in touch with any of my high school buddies for years since we graduated. Even if I wanted to call them up, their old enough that they've moved out.

aww.. love is a sweet sorrow...

You guys made the right decision. At this time you guys are apart, you can test your feelings for each other. You can see how strong your love between you and if you really meant to be...

Commiserations to those who've lost people to the wild blue yonder.
My girlfriend moved to Canada last year (Vancouver) which is something in the range of 3000 miles away. The relationship didn't really work out seeing as we ended up having to get on with our lives without each other.
I've got used to loosing people due to distances, I live in a different country from my best friend, who lives in England, but I still keep in touch with him loads. I have friends all around the world, it seems that once I'd taken the leap to move it really sucked at first. But realising that the world isn't really that big a place, and that it is really easy to keep in touch with people soon fixed that. Now my friends inhabit every continent in the world (excluding Antartica).
