I have been dating my girlfriend for a little over 2 years now. About 4 months after we started dating she moved back to Japan where she is from originally. She finished her degree there, and I am still in school here. I have about 2.5 years of college left and she is working in Japan. From my understanding (at least with her company) she is only allowed to take off about a week of vacation every year. Her job seems to be extremely exhausting because of her weird hours and the fact that she has to commute 1.5 hours one way to work everyday on the trains. At this point I am only able to see her a couple times a year. I normally go there for 3 weeks during one of my breaks (summer or winter) and she comes here or we meet somewhere for her week vacation. Things seem to be taking longer than I expected because I transferred to another University and I have to retake a few classes. She is very hesitant to get married with me before I graduate, but I'm already having a hard time missing her. The conversation has come up often about getting married before I graduate and money really isn't an issue right now if we did get married. She tells me she is enjoying her job right now and wants to work there longer, she has already worked there 1 year. She's told me that she wants to live here with me, yet it is very hard to wait for her while all of my friends around me are in great relationships. I am 22 and she is 24 btw. Do you guys/gals have any tips or advice for me??
