I'd embrace it since you really don't have any choice. She's placing her trust in you as much as you in her. Trust is something better learned now rather than later.

I dated a school teacher for a couple of years. During the summer she would chaperone trips to far away places for almost 3 months. She was doing that long before I met her. It was a great opportunity for her and I had no reson not to trust her. So I did just that.

The results were that we didn't make it as a couple, but it had little to do with those trips. During the last trip we both had some time to reflect and when she returned it was the beginning of the end.

It's not the time or the distance, it's the people that matter.

I've had those who remained committed over months, and those who didn't make it through the weekend before deciding that "love the one you're with" was a lousy song, but a fun way to live.

You are only 22, I assume she is the same. At that age, promises about the vastness of the future are usually more wishful thinking and fairy tale myth than anything else. Take a deep breath, remain calm, and make a wish.

Then be sure to behave yourself while she's gone, just in case she does too, and expects to find a true fellow waiting for her at home.
