I'm 24 and my girlfriend is 23. She is a delight to be with. We gel well and are thinking of a future together. When she's not around, I'm too occupied with football, friends, video games and Internet to miss her presence. I haven't fallen for any other girl yet, is it okay to do your thing for a while?

There is something called me time which is important for everyone. You are indulging in what you love — football and video games. So it is obvious that you don't remember her during those times. There is nothing wrong with it. When you are not around, she is also busy with her own life. When you are with her, you get undivided attention and that is what matters. As long as you are not cheating on her, there is no need to feel guilty. Everyone is entitled to their own space and time.
