Once again, for the third summer in a row my GF and I are in different states, this time, probably the farthest away she could possibly be without being in a different country (She is in Hawaii for 10 weeks). You think I would be used to this by now, but it never gets easy. I need some help from the ladies for this one, I'm trying to figure my GF out. Last summer: We talked ALL THE TIME, we would sometimes spend an hour or more at night on the phone. I went and visited, etc. This summer: It is completely different. We spend at MOST 20 minutes on the phone once a day. She blames it on the 6 hour time difference, but I don't really see this as a valid excuse. I brought it up to her that I think it would be good for our relationship to try and find time to talk more. She doesn't have any problem with the 10-15 minute conversations. I also bought her a webcam before she left so we could skype...well, it's been 2 weeks and we've skyped maybe twice for like 10 minutes each time, and that was on maybe the 2nd or 3rd day. Whenever I ask if she wants to have a "skype date", she just shrugs it off, tells me she's busy or whatnot. It was her choice to go to Hawaii for the summer (internship), but it's kinda like she enjoys being away from me and I can't really understand why she would. To me, I've voiced my opinion and told her I'm not ok with her going so far away for so long, but I'm obviously not going to stop her because she is a grown ass woman. Oh, we're both 21, and have been dating for 2 1/2 years. I'm not sure how to get through to her. Am I just being a bitch? Do you think she's just putting up a front and trying to "be strong" so she doesn't have to face the emotions of being away?
