I gather- though you do not say - that you are around University age and are living with parents, parents who you need to help with education etc. If so, that is a tough situation.
There have been quite a few who have been on this forum in similar situations. They solution? Making a life together by getting jobs and housing. That said, not being together enough is a sure fire way to live in one's head. I'm not saying that your love isn't real, but rather, it hasn't been measured by the really hard stuff. And that would be where you are taking care of each other on a day to day basis. And if that is what you want to do, you (meaning both of you) are going to make a PLAN. A written on paper plan. A plan with steps, goals and 'doable' stuff in it.
What can you each be doing to realize your dream of being together? Start with that. Making the dream a reality means dealing with the practical stuff.
How far along are you with that?
Now, if- for some reason- this isn't even a possibility, you are setting yourself up for great heartache.
Wishing you much happiness, love and joy.
