I don't even know how to begin this. If I try to notate every detail in the relationship, I'd be here for days. I don't expect anyone to be able to give perfect advice since you cannot possibly know the whole story, but let me give you some background information. My girlfriend and I have been together for almost three years now, beginning in High School and lasting into College. We don't go to the same school, but we're within an hour away, so it's not too much of an object. I love her, but I feel almost deprived of a period of zero accountability in life. I don't want to have sexual relationships with other people. I just want to be able to do what I want, when I want, without letting anyone know where I am, or where I'll be going or for how long. I don't want to disappear for days on end, or even overnight, and I'm not a huge party goer. I just want to be able to hang out with friends here and there, maybe watch a movie till 2am while smoking or something. How do I get some space without ending the relationship?
