My boyfriend and I have been dating a little over a year now and Im head over heals in love with him but I’m having second thoughts about trying to date him this summer. I have a nanny job where i live with the family which is about 30 mins away and that is every other week. Ive been doing it about 3 summers now and last summer it really affected him but he never told me anything about it. Well we were just dating so i was kinda okay with it…but now were closer and more in love and I cant take a summer being away from him so much. Every time i talk about it all he says is now you know i felt last summer. He works at the grocery store here in town which isnt bad but he just is working kinda alot. So we went on a date last night and It was the most fun ive had in a while but now im avoiding him because i dont know weather to stay with him or not this summer. Its hard and I need help. Please..I cant quit my job im 16 and need it but dont know what to do without my first love.
If you really love each other, distance should mean nothing. You're only gone every other week, that's not even bad. It sounds like he's shaming you for having a job, which is horrible and he shouldn't do that. Don't avoid him or break up with him, if you love him that would be the opposite of what you should do. Distance shouldn't matter.
