This is more of a vent thread than an advice thread. I really have no idea about how to deal with this, and even how I really feel about it. Well here is the situation. Girlfriend and I are spending the majority of the next year apart (Been together minus one break for 4.5 years), as we are both participating in study abroad programs. We sort of had an open relationship kind of deal, but after about a month with neither of us looking to anyone else, I think we pretty much decided to stay close... Well, out of the blue she drops this huge bomb on me. When we broke up about 10 months ago she lied to me multiple times about her and this guy as we were getting back together. I kind of figured she was lying at the time, and it pissed me off. Yet, I was able to move past it. She didn't cheat on me or anything, but we all know how women love to jump on the rebound train ASAP. So now a month into my program she decides to tell me that she was lying because she couldn't live with herself. As of yesterday, this was a non issue. I didn't care about what happend last year, but for some reason she felt the need to tell me now. I'm not going to see her in the next year except for a few two week-month increments so I feel like I can get no closure on the issue. To make things more complicated, I have been keeping something from her for quite some time as well. I feel like now we can talk about such things and get closer, but thats hard to do on opposite sides of the earth. So... WTF why did she tell me this now? I told her I wanted to share something to, but in person not on the phone. Well Im really rambling now, I just feel confused, angry, hurt, and alone. No one to really talk to about this etc. Cliffs: Girlfriend drops a bomb on me one month into a year of long distance relationship. No way to deal with it and get some closure. Why is she so dense?
