Hey everyone. I'm new and none of you know me. Which is why I'm posting this here. I need advice from someone impartial. I have been in a long distance relationship for 3 1/2 years now. Don't ask how we have made it work but it has been working and it still is. The reason that it's still long distance is because we live in different countries. He's in the US and I'm way the hell up here. I have a daughter and I'm in law school. School has been going pretty well up until this semester because we have been having pretty bad issues lately. Mostly because of the distance. I haven't been paying attention to school and I failed all but one course I took. He has to do his thing where he lives. He would like to move up here but he can't yet (long story). I have my daughter to think of and school... I'm hesitant to take her from everything and everyone she knows to move down there (which would only be temporary though) and of course I'm also hesitant to walk away from the time and money I've invested in school. But I have a feeling that by making school the priority I'm walking away from him and all the time we have invested in this relationship. This is the best man I have ever come across and I love him very deeply. He loves me very deeply too. We have very open communication and know everything about each other. Which is why we have made it last this long I guess. But I have a feeling that we are losing "us" if we do this much longer. Our last issue was resolved but I think that's only going to be temporary. He's not happy like this and neither am I. I would move down there in a heartbeat if it wasn't for my daughter and school. I can't pick up where I left off (when I get back) because law school here doesn't allow that. You have to start from scratch if you take "time off". There just isn't any "time off" in this particular line of education. I don't want to lose him and I don't want to give up on school. But I'm tired of this life. This last shock was me failing those 3 courses. Not that I was surprised... I knew it was coming since I have been "absent". But it's still a schock to see the numbers. I guess I'm just feeling extremely depressed over everything right now and need a fresh perspective. I just don't know where to go from here and I know he doesn't want to pressure me into anything... like he said: "if you give up school chances are that you will blame me for it later on". I think he may have a point there. And for the record, he's not giving me an ultimatum and hasn't said anything about ending this. That's just a feeling I have about "us" now. I just don't want to lose the best man I've known. I wasn't even going to have any more relationships when I met him. And now I can't imagine my life without him. I'm Tired, with a big T. What am I going to do? What would you do?
