Long-Distance Let Down

Dear Frankly,

I’m impressed with the quality of your advice and I hope you can help me, too. My girlfriend and I have been in a long distance relationship for two years. Last week she told me that she needs some space. She said she wants to see other people, cut down on our phone conversations and not travel to see each other as much. She wants us to continue our friendship. I don’t want to lose her, but this new situation is soooo painful. What should I do?

Lost in Space

Dear Lost In,

Long distance relationships are difficult to maintain. Maybe she just wants to save some gas and phone money. Then again, maybe you said “soooo” too many times in front of her and she thinks you’re a wimp. This one’s a toss-up.

Dear Frankly,

I am a guy in my mid-thirties. I met a recently divorced woman through a video dating service. We have gone out a few of times and every time I asked her to go out she has said yes with a lot of enthusiasm. At the video dating service, she stated her interest in a relationship was to casually date and meet people. I would desperately like to have a real relationship with her, but I do not know how to proceed. Should I let her know how interested I am in her, or should I go slow?

Dear Wrought With,

Where do you guys come up with your pen names? It sounds like your divorcee might not be as desperate as you are to pursue a serious relationship. It was months before I got serious and married my second husband. It got easier after the fourth one.
