Me and my girlfriend are both in college, and have been for now four years. She's graduating this year, and I have one year left thanks to my finding myself a little later in life. I'm up in MA, and she's down in NC. We've pulled this since high school, and she's pursuing a Physician's Assistant's program, which is another two years of college where we are pretty much not gonna be talking to each other because of how busy she will be. Furthermore, I'm trying to pursue officer commissioning opportunities in the Navy.
We've had a couple of rough semesters, and she approached me recently about taking a break for a while to concentrate on things. As sad as I felt about it, it also took a huge weight off of my chest because I was pretty much feeling the same way. As much as we still have feelings for one another, I think we need it. Honestly, (and keeping in mind what I just said), I feel like I want the opportunity to talk to other girls as well.
I guess what I'm throwing out there is maybe an instance or two that anybody else on here has had similar to this. What did you go through? Good/bad results from it? Tips on how to handle it? Tips on how to handle the rules of a break? Thanks.

Translation: She has a guy(s) she's wanting to screw.
After being away from her (and not having sex with her) for essentially eight months, is that a bad thing to ask? I'm not gonna lie, I want the same thing with other girls. I mean, don't get me wrong, I want it with her too, but that's another month away.
I shouldn't have worded it like that. Of course there's something wrong with her being in a relationship with me and wanting to screw other guys. But I guess what I'm trying to ask is, after essentially not being with each other for eight straight months, it's a bit natural to feel that way, no?
