My girlfriend is wonderful. She's art made real to me and I love her like nothing else. She's moving to another province for a job - not her dream job, just a well-paying one. I still have a two semesters of university left, with a summer in the middle. I can't leave the province while I'm in school, but I would love to see her in the summer of course.

I'm scared of this long distance thing. It didn't work so well for me last time. She's broken quite a few hearts in her day and that does worry me. I thought about ending it, to avoid the pain of changing living in the same bed with her for five months into Facebook messages and probably the odd Skype chat. I told her I'm not sure I can do this long distance thing. But I want to try. I know that as a young kid I would be furious with my older self for letting love, the most important thing in the world to me, slip away because of fear.

I'm going to buy her a promise ring. It's not an expensive one, pretty cheap really- it's all I can afford. I don't think it's her kind of thing but I hope that it is. I wish so badly that she wasn't going, and it's going to hurt like crazy.

I don't know what I want anyone to tell me. I just hope I'm not being a coward.
