Trust is lacking big time in this relationship as this paranoid Florida boyfriend lays down the law for his girlfriend who had just left for college. Long-distance relationships can be challenging but isn't this a little extreme?.
This is what the student read on her first night of College:
NO BOYS. NO DRINKING. NO BOYS. [NO] DRINKING. NO BOYS. NO DRINKING. Please be smart alright. I know you will dang it but please be smart. This is really hard for me because I've always been a tremendously good person and have never gone to a party. When I text you, you are to answer. The party is not and will not ever be more important than me. You better know what you are doing. Please don't do anything to ruin us. I know you won't but a reminder never hurt. Around 9:30 text me when you'll be home. Have fun. I love you bunches. I don't know why I allow this but whatever go. NO BOYS. NO DRINKING. And I love you.
And you're calling me tonight and I'm getting every detail.
Jealousy is a common by-product of long-distance relationships which is rooted in a concern that you’re growing apart from your partner.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make is obsessing about your partner doing things without you and spending time with people you don’t know.
Lets face it, it simply isn't possible to know what your partner is doing at all times.
Trust in your partner and have faith that things will work out.
“All you can do is keep in honest contact with that person on a day-to-day basis and not hide anything,” said Laura Benn in Elle Canada.
