And I agree with DragonRat, as well.
There are four kinds of love... I've forgotten all of them except "agape". And I don't think I remember what that really means.
When you are in lust, it looks and feels like love. When you are in love, you cannot be apart. There is no jealousy, because she is perfect and can do no wrong. Jealousy is anti-love. You are trying to tell her what she can't do, with love both of you accept that there is nothing the other person can't do. I guess I would say that the person you love is going to be your "best friend". You won't put any other thing in the way of being together. And this is unconscious. You don't intentionally do this thing.
Do you plan beyond the day? Love demands a plan... You should be scheming and planning how to be together as often as possible. If she just left for college, she is vulnerable as she probably is in a new milieu, no friends, weird happenings going on everywhere, and you, safely in her pocket.
If she only loves you when she sees you; take what you can get and learn from it. "'Tis better to have loved and lost; than never to have loved at all."
I can still tell you Thousand word stories about the first woman I loved. I can make you shiver with the excitement of softly stroking her breast while reading Shakespear to her in her lavender scented bedroom. But God am I glad that I didn't marry her. Even though she was the "Trophy Girl" at the 1962 U.S. Summer Nationals Drag Races... She was so beautiful. She was so absotively wrong... "Twisted".
