Tuffy Love Starts Your NDR (No Distance Relationship) Off Right

I told him I didn't want to live with anyone until I was engaged first. I'm wondering if I am making it too hard on the poor guy - he is moving 1,000 miles away from home to be with me, and I'm making him find an apartment, find his own roommates, while we both know that he'll probably be over at my place all the time.

I’m not exactly proud of it. Not exactly. But I will proudly say that it’s the best decision I ever made. Now before you start calling me names and reciting the seventh commandment in my ear, hear me out. Cheating on my boyfriend may not have been right, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t necessary.

Sort of...Here is my situation, I have the much coveted/dreaded position of broke but oh so sexy older musician's girlfriend. (He's 26, I'm 20). My man is a drummer, and a very talented one at that.

Ask a Dude: Why Did My LDR End When We Were Finally Together?

Dear Dude, My long distance 3-year boyfriend broke up with me 3 weeks ago. We became really close and honestly the relationship was really easy. He never cheated and he always called and texted. And I thought waiting for him to come home was right. Yet, 3 years later, we are both 10 min away from each other and he decided to break up with me 7 days before V-Day.
