Thank you for contacting us for assistance. First of all, I am sorry that you are having this issue with someone whom you feel so connectd with and care so much about. My suggestion is that I would give Jenny the space that she is asking. It sounds like she is having a hard time right now of her own and needs some time and space to figure out what she needs for herself. I would highly suggest that you remain available to her and let her know that you are there for her whenever she is ready to talk. Times likes these in relationships can be the toughest of them all as we cannot control the other person that we care so much about and just want them to love us; however, Jenny must work this through on her own other wise it will not be a "relationship" at all. I would be supportive to her and let her know that you are "there" for her as long as you are willing to "be there for her." You seeme to understand her struggles at this time in her life and are willing to wait this out and see what happens. Just be prepared if things do not go the way you want them to so you are not toatlly upset and devastated as only Jenny has control of her destiny. I wish you only the best. You sound like a wonderful guy who loves this girls and is wiling to do whatever to be with her. i certaily hope for the best for you. Remember that I am here for you for any future assistance. The best to you.
