I met this guy online and we started talking for 8 months. Bad thing is…. he lives in Chicago and I live in Cincinnati.. but we fell in love with each other and we’re basically making plans for the future. Another bad thing is… I’m 16 and he turned 18 in July. We can’t really plan much because of our age and because we’re jobless and both have no car yet. He’s fun, funny, really cute, and empathetic.. but he gets irritated easily and is a huge hypocrite. But I still love him for him and he loves me for me.
My mom and friends keep telling me that our relationship is a waste of time because he’s too far away and I may never see him. But here’s the worst part..
I came in touch with my old best friend; we grew up together. He’s 17 and loves in Cincinnati. We started hanging out a lot and I kinda started to like him a little. And recently he confessed that he liked me and asked me out… and I said yes… I said yes because I was insecure about the long distant relationship. He is calm and chill and not as fun as Chicago. But he’s sweeter and cute and he lives in Cincinnati… they don’t know about each other. I know I’m basically cheating on them both, and I’m so confused.
Should I let go of Chicago and stay with Cincy because he’s HERE, or let go of Cincy and stick with Chicago for the possibility of us getting to meet years to come?
Breaking up with Chicago will break my heart, but not being about to meet him will also.. should I say forget it? PLEASE HELP
