My girlfriend has changed a key part of our relationship that I don't think I may be able to handle.
Me and My girlfriend have been dating for almost a year now and after a while we decided to try having a sexual relationship (both of us for the first time).We fell very quickly in love at the beginning of our last year of highschool and the sexual aspect made it a little better. 7 months in she began to show signs of discomfort after we would make love. This progressively got worse and she started to be less eager to be intimate. She left this summer to be a counselor at a religious camp and has chosen a religious college too. Just recently she said she wants nothing to do with a sex until we are married. I still want to do it badly, but I know it would kill her on the inside to do it. I told her I would try to abstain with her to keep her from breaking up with me, but we both know it would be very tough for me. We clearly want different things and this problem seems to be pushing us apart. We both have had an amazing year together and want to keep dating badly since our colleges are not far apart. Is there any way for me to figure out how to adjust to a nonsexual relationship after being in one? Or should we break up now and save each other the pain when we are in college?
