Not to get into a long depressing story, but my grilfriend of two years and the one I was going to propose to decided she needed to break up with me. After finally pulling teeth to get down to the root of the problem, it seems that she can't handle the fact that I am going to medical school. She can't handle that I would not be with her every waking moment, although I did everything in my power to be with her during my masters. I only assumed that we could make it work during medical school. So I am interested in how people in long term relationships made it work out, or if you were in a long term relationship that went sour how did you handle the break up. This is a serious question and I only ask for sincere advice.
