I met someone while studying abroad and now I'm moving back to America. Is it worth it to pursue a long distance relationship?

Before leaving, discuss a long distance relationship with the other person. Be realistic about how it would work and whether it's worth it. Long distance relationships can be a lot of work and if neither of you are willing to put in the effort or see that you won't "go the distance" it may be worth it to just end your study abroad experience as friends without any romantic expectations. Even if you think you may want to pursue a long distance relationship, you also have to consider how likely it is that you'll see each other again and how often. If they live in another country, it can be very difficult (especially depending on your financials) to meet up. Overall, you really need to think about how strong your feelings are for the other person and whether the two of you think a relationship is worth a try. Don't be afraid to go for it but make sure you really want to move forward before you give it a try.
