My girlfriend and I met about two years ago on tumblr. I was 19 and she was 17. We had a long distance relationship for about 7 months before she decided to live with me and go to college here. We've had rough spots in our relationship but for the most part we got past them pretty easily. But the sexual aspect of our relationship was never really what we wanted it to be. We have gotten to the point where we haven't even tried having sex in months. It did bother me a little, but I was able to deal with it. Recently, though, my girlfriend had gotten very distant and she wasn't talking to me as much. Last night we finally sat down and talked about it and she said that she feels like there the romance that we had at the beginning is gone. She also admitted that she's scared to be in a long-term relationship because she's still only 19. She feels like there are so many things that she hasn't experienced yet, and if we stay together she won't get to. When we were done talking she said that this wasn't her breaking up with me, but I still hardly got any sleep last night. She is at school now and we have been texting all morning trying to figure out where we stand. We both agreed that our feelings for each other might have been romantic love in the beginning, but the way we've been with each other lately is closer to friendship. We still haven't exactly said that we've broken up, and she is still planning on living with me for the time being so that we can ease out of our romantic relationship. I really feel like what we feel for each other is just the love that friends have, but at the same time this was my first relationship and it lasted almost two years. I'm happy that we're staying friends, but it still hurts to lose something like that. How do I get over my first relationship ending?
