I got a call the other day from my best friend of seven years informing me that her long-time boyfriend had just broken up with her. If you have ever been in this position, then you know the fight-or-flight feeling that goes straight through your body.
There he is, tall, brown hair, gorgeous blue eyes, dimples, broad chest, tight muscles, strong enough to throw you across his shoulder and carry you into the bedroom, but not so large that he’d crush you if he were on top.
It is sort of amazing how someone could want a relationship and claim they love a person, but then decide they need to go on a break for a period of time just to test the relationship.
Is it really just the one-night-stand goal that college-aged adults aim for or is it “The Notebook”-esque romance that we are really looking for when we agree to go on that blind date?
Almost every college student has a long distance relationship of one kind or another. And by relationship I mean of any kind — familial, best friend or just one of those people who call you at peak hours of the night.
It’s back-to-school time and everyone is attempting to organize their lives into perfectly color-coded bins purchased from Bed Bath & Beyond — only they have yet to find out that one thing doesn’t fit quite so perfectly into these bins, namely, your relationships (or lack thereof).
