Backstory: I've known of this girl since she was probably 17... didn't really know her, just if we were at the same place we would say hi and give hugs or whatever. I ran into her a couple times last year (she was 21, I was 26) and she got my number, we ended up going out for drinks a couple times and hitting it off really good. She is a super busy person and the whole time that we dated, the most time that we ever spent together in a big chunk was maybe 4 whole days. Usually if i was lucky I'd see her maybe 2-3 times a week and that would consist of one of us stopping by eachother's work or someone spending the night. I was cool with that and never pressured her about ditching anything dealing with school. Slowly but surely we both got pretty attached to eachother to the point where I could see an actual future with her and we both mentioned how we sometimes wanted to say love. 7mo later: She has been super stressed out about her school and an internship and Tuesday of last week dropped the whole I need space/break thing on me. She can't give me any reason other than because of her workload and her feeling like her life is imploding around her. I feel like shit and that everything is in limbo with her, which is not what I want at all. I I didn't talk to her at all and she calls me yesterday. I seriously thought after reading all the threads in here that I should just not answer but I did. We talked some more about it and how she feels like she can't be in a relationship until she can sort her life out and pull up her grades. She told me she was dropping her internship because of stress also. I fished around and asked if she had any sort of time frame for the break and she skirted around between the end of her summer semester and I don't know. I told her that I still care about her but I'm gonna go do my own thing and for her to get back to me whenever she sorts her shit out and that it isn't fair to me and is selfish for her to call and try to vent to me about how hard her life is when it is her that is wanting a break from the relationship. I asked her how she felt about me and she couldn't give me an answer other than she likes me a lot, was sorry about the situation, and that she is pussing out right now trying not to think about her feelings about me until some of the other problems in her life have been worked on. I told her that I thought that was dumb because a relationship has ups and downs and the couple helps eachother out when times are tough. I told her that she is pushing me away because she's scared. She said yeah she's scared of commitment and that she's taking the easy way out right now but still wants to stay in touch with me. Thoughts? ps: Since I'm on a break I've already fucked this new girl twice, but did feel emotional turmoil as she gagged on my dick and wished it was my gf.
