Me and my girlfriend are going to apart for about 6 months. She's travelling through Asia and Oz. I'm going through South America and Africa. Obviously we'll have phone calls and the internet to keep in touch, and I'm not worried about myself cheating because I love her to bits....I just keep getting paranoid she'll do it to me.

Just want to hear from people who have been travelling through Asia and Oz whilst away from parntners.....did you find it easy to stay faithful or was it hard and the opportunity to cheat at every corner? How long were you away from your partners? Did it bring you closer together or did it drive you apart? I really don't know what to expect and I'd like some feedback from people who have been in similar situations.

Thanks in advance

Danny.

just trust her. has she done anything in the past to make you question her trust? also don't prod around and ask questions on the phone that make her think you don't trust her. not much else you can do.

plus just think about all the stories you'll have for each other when you get back.

lol would I be with her if I didn't think she wasn't?

Besides once most guys have had a few drinks, any girl is hot....haha

Seriously though. I need some real answers from people. This is very important to me...

I want to trust her and I realise all I have is her word to go by....but I can't stop worrying. Are the things I read about Oz being a haven for backpacking hookups true?

Dude, trust issues are as big as cheating issues.

Or make a deal. This next six months you are apart you will get to try being with other people. It will make you appreciate each other more, yadda yadda yadda.

Then no worries, and you can both relax. You'll know it doesn't matter what she does. She won't worry about having a naggy insecure boyfriend.

I think your biggest threat to your realtionship may just be you.. unless of course her daddy didn't love her, and shes also ok with you smacking her around a bit. Those girls don't mind jealous boyfriends.

Sorry about my earlier comment. I was eating breakfast, the kids were arguing, and it was the first thing that came to mind.

Seriously though, if you love her to bits then I doubt you will cheat. I travelled without my girlfriend (now wife of 12 years) and her without me, and it neither bought us closer together nor drove us apart. It was simply something that we did separately due to circumstance and we both obviously grew as people from the experiences. (We have since travelled together extensively).

Having said that, we were both on a pretty long leash on a day-to-day basis and not living out of each others pockets so petty jealousies didn't exist. Oh yeah, she was so smoking hot; still is! (and I mean SMOKIN' HOT!)

If you do get jealous or have lingering doubts, whatever you do don't harp on about them to her. If she remains faithful to you (and let's face it, chances are she will) , she's not going to want to feel almost guilty for something that she hasn't done with you going on about it.

You'll be fine.

how can you be so sure you won't cheat?
have you ever met girls from Argentina? They are like italian and spanish combined! WOW! ellos son molto bella!

seriously though, just trust her and enjoy your own trip.
