I thought to ask what you guys think.
Background: I'm 24 and my gf is 23. We've been together almost 2yrs now. Very good relationship, shes loyal etc. Always tells me who shes going out with and all that(without me asking).
She has the opportunity to go to school in Mexico for some dentist program(she cant get into a dental program here in the US due to grades). Supposedly this school is certified by California and shes eligible to take the dental board exam once she graduates from that school and will live in the US here. This program is 4 years. Now she didnt get in yet, but it sounds like a 80% chance that she will get in. She would be going there starting next fall, and coming back to stay in socal in the summers, winters and thanksgiving breaks. Lets assume she already got accepted.
I really want to make this work because I think shes great but I also realize that long distance relationships are doomed for failure. I guess if we are super mature about it then we can make it work but 4 years? To add to it, one of her best friends from highschool(some guy) is there in the school now and she'll probably be hanging out with him alot.
She assures me that she wants to stay together and would never do anything to jeopardize the situation. I didnt like the idea to start off with...for obvious reasons.
I'm really bummed. I'm not really sure what to think at this point. You guys can tell me the good/bad news, i'm ready for it...
