I was deeply in love with this girl in high school. I graduated high school and was going to a major university about 30 miles away. She lived another 25 minutes in the opposite direction. She didn't have a car so she couldn't come to me or meet me anywhere. I would have to go to her place just to hang out. My parents told me and convinced me that i would never have time for her, since i was studying a really hard major, saying that she would instead find love somewhere else. So they told me to break up with her.
