How Do I Deal With My Boyfriend Being In Jail?
Me and my ex broke up a few months ago and we were planning on getting back together about 2 weeks ago. I hadn't seen him since we broke up and before I could see him, he ended up going to jail. He missed some days of his community services so he is going to be locked up for 3 months. I know that's not a long time compare to other girls' boyfriends who are going to be in jail for years. But I have never known anybody who was in jail before and I'm not really sure how to deal with it. The first time I went to see him, I went with his mom and when I saw him at that window, I ran to him and I was trying to talk but I just started crying. Seeing him for the first time in months, in those jail clothes behind a glass. I finally went to see him on Saturday but his visits are only 15 mins long! I take the bus 40 mins downtown just to see him for 15 mins. He tries to call me but Sprint doesn't allow collect calls. I miss him soooo much. I've written him 3 letters but I have yet to send him. I don't know why. I feel like him being in a jail is a test of my love for him. Because I was extremely "iffy" about getting back together with him. But missing him like this proves that I still love him. He's been in jail, like 2-3 weeks and he won't get out til January (if he doesn't get a work detail or whatever it is). How do I deal with this?
