That sounds like it might work! thanks Michael! it is relatively new and i am trying to adjust. i think we are good and allright when we are hanging out together besides a couple of those small speedbumps.
Upon reflecting, I think the bigger difficulty I am having now in terms of communication is that whenever we are not around each other, like this thanksgiving break when we both went to our respective homes (as one example)... i feel like she doesn't make the effort to keep in touch. I mean she might instant messaged me online, but I'm talking about calls or simply texts. I feel like I always have to initiate these kinds of communications and that is what is really starting to bother me. If she asked me for a commitment, shouldn't we be doing the simple fundamentals without an issue?
