Q.I started dating a guy back in the spring. We were only together a little over a month when he left for the summer for a trip across the country. I’d known he was leaving since I’d met him, and since we hadn’t been dating all that long, neither of us wanted to “officially” call ourselves anything, and we said we’d see where we were when he got back. In the meantime, he assured me that he would miss me and that we would be in touch for sure.
He definitely kept in touch this summer. Not as often as I had hoped at times, but definitely enough to fairly say that he kept his word, and enough to reassure me that he cared and was still interested.
