Our expert says:
Her suggested plans sound like something many people think of, especially when younger, when they feel they can spare the time and want to sample other countries. I'm sure she wants to go overseas, rather than wanting to leave you, and she probably had this plan in mind even before meeting you. Its probably nothing personal, though of course it would feel that way. Maybe things will work out and maybe she will return and be ready to resume a relationship with you. But if this doesn't happen, DONT assume that you have lost your last significant chance of happines --- the very fact of this relationship shows that you can form happy relationshiops with others, and if this one doesn't happen to work out, the next or the next but one probably will.
Nothing is an excuse for wither of you to "use" the other. At least it sounds as though she has been frank and up-front with you about her plans, and that shows respect, for you and for herself.
excellent responses from other readers, all round
