Imagine being with someone for one summer. You start being together at the start of it and you agree to not go beyond summer as one or both of you will not be in the same place. It is the most wonderful thing ever and yet you both know it cannot last, as you agreed that to would not. You love and trust each other yet you can imagine the eventual strain it all causes and the questions that must be asked. How do you see each other when you are near each other again? Do you try and pick up where you left off or do you make another agreement that will also one day conclude? Do you just remain friends? How exclusive is the relationship? Is it totally exclusive for the agreed period or can it be made more inclusive because you both know it won't last?
Life can be very difficult!
