If You Want It Enough

Dear Miss U,
I met my boyfriend via an international dating site that I joined out of boredom and curiosity. I am in the US and he is in England. We instantly hit it off and have been talking/texting/Facetiming ever since. We talked on the phone for 6 hours once, and almost every night we talk until I fall asleep to his voice on the phone. nI am visiting him in London in a few weeks and he plans to come here for a month for Christmas. I am recently divorced and I am so scared by how I feel for him. I have never had a connection to someone like this before, and he tells me the same. I can’t go a few hours without texting him and he can’t either… [read more]

Together is Home

Dear Miss U,
My partner lives in the Caribbean, and I live in Canada. Recently, we have been considering where we will settle together. I always assumed that they were coming to Canada to live with me, as they had expressed displeasure with living where they are currently, but recently, they have asked me if I would live over there. I have concerns about living over there, but I love my partner and do not want to give up on our relationship over location. Any ideas on a compromise? [read more]

Not Giving Up

Dear Miss U,
I’ve met him many times within a year from TX to NY, when I asked him to come visit, even offered to buy a ticket, his pride would be in the way or he would tell me, “That isn’t top priority.” I know he has things to deal with, and I respect that, but I feel it’s not fair that he hasn’t visited me… [read more]

R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

Dear Miss U,

I live in the U.S. while he lives in the U.K. It isn’t easy and I feel as if I am the only one putting in the effort for keeping communication open. I understand we both have busy lives but every time I write him, he always responds with one-word answers. Every time I bring up my feelings about it, he gets defensive and blows it off. I feel so ignored and so lonely… [read more]

Young Struggles

Dear Miss U,

My boyfriend has recently moved to college states away. It’s only been a month in and he is saying it’s really hard. He admitted to me that he has been avoiding calling me or Facetime because he says it makes him sad (but also happy, but mostly sad) which I kind of understand. He is sort of pushing me away by doing that, and our text conversations aren’t the same; he can’t keep a conversation going… [read more]

Sad and Jealous

Dear Miss U,
I am the jealous type!!! I have tried everything to try to fight this ugly part of me. … She is going to a concert all weekend. We won’t get to talk at night until 5 am (3-hour time difference) I trust her and I love her, but I am struggling with this. I don’t know if it’s that deep down I don’t trust her or if it’s the fact that I rely so much on getting to talk to her… [read more]
